A total of 80 pubs and breweries in Berkshire have been named among the very best in the UK for a pint.

The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) has published its annual Good Beer Guide, revealing the 4500 best places across the UK for having a pint of beer.

Dozens of pubs and breweries across the Berkshire region were included in the guide – the foreword of which detailed the “incredibly difficult” economic climate facing the pub industry, with CAMRA Chairman Nik Atona adding: “We need more support than ever before to keep our nation’s pubs and breweries open and thriving.

“I’d encourage everyone to use this year’s Guide to visit the very best pubs and breweries across the UK and support them for generations to come.”

This year's guide records 82 new breweries and 142 losses following closures - which CAMRA say is a "worrying reminder" that a lack of support from the Government means dire consequences for local businesses, in the wake of a cost-of-business crisis and the constant pressure of energy bills.

Taking a look at the pub scene, the guide also contains 910 newly featured pubs from around the country.

Just some of the Berkshire pubs that were named among the best in the country in the 2024 guide are:

  • Victoria Arms in Binfield
  • Newtown Pippin in Bracknell
  • Old Manor in Bracknell
  • Fox and Hounds in Caversham
  • Barleycorn in Cippenham
  • Swan in Clewer Village
  • A Hoppy Place in Maidenhead
  • Maiden's Head in Maidenhead
  • Lock, Stock and Barrel in Newbury
  • Alehouse in Reading
  • Park House (University of Reading)
  • Three Guineas in Reading
  • Moon and Spoon in Slough
  • Corner House in Windsor
  • Outhouse Brewery in Wokingham
