Seven pubs in Coventry and Warwickshire owned by the Stonegate Pub Company have been included in the Good Beer Guide 2021.
They were among 24 across the Midlands featured in the annual guide for cask ale lovers published by CAMRA (the Campaign for Real Ale).
The independent guidebook helps the public to discover the best pubs in the UK that serve real ale.
The Coventry and Warwickshire pubs recognised are among 4,500 entries in the guide, which is decided by evaluations made by CAMRA members.
CAMRA promotes and advocates pubs in the UK as social centres of their communities as well as the production of good quality real ale.
Founded in 1971, the organisation currently has almost 190,000 members.
The Stonegate pubs in Coventry that made the pages of the 2021 Good Beer Guide were the Nursery Tavern, the Old Windmill, the Town Wall Tavern and Samoan Joes.
The Warwickshire Stonegate inclusions were the Anker in Nuneaton, the Gauntlet in Kenilworth and the New Inn, Leamington.
Speaking about the pubs included Stonegate’s managing director Helen Charlesworth said: “It’s great news to hear of so many of our pubs being recognised in such a renowned and respected guide.
“To be recognised by the leading consumer organisation representing beer drinkers is an honour.”
She added: “Our pubs shine in their roles in their local communities and this has been more than apparent in these recent months and will continue into the future, through this coming lockdown and beyond.
“The hospitality industry has felt more acutely than any, the challenges presented by Covid-19, therefore it is great to recognise excellence and highlight the pubs that excel in their choice and presentation of beers.
“It is a fitting publication to remind the public that pubs continue to serve their local communities and play a vital role in supporting brewers across the country.”
