West Huntspill's Crossways Inn receives 'Pub of the year' award

A pub near Burnham-On-Sea has this week received a prestigious award after being named Somerset’s pub of the year for a second year running.

The Crossways Inn in West Huntspill has won the top county award from CAMRA (The Campaign for Real Ale) after impressing the judges with its range of quality real ales.

The pub’s owners, Steve Dean and Abi Havercroft, pictured, received the county award this week at the pub, along with the 2017 regional runner-up award.

Mick Cleveland, Chairman of the Somerset branch of CAMRA, told "The Crossways' beer is superior in the county - Steve really knows how to look after beer. Also, because the pub is so busy and he has a great turnover, that means the beer is always fresh."

"Steve and Abi have done so well to win the County title for a second year running - and also to come regional runner-up for 2017 against 453 pubs across the south west."

The award was presented in the pub to loud applause from customers.

Steve said: "We are over the moon to have won for a second year running! We were runner-up in 2016 for Somerset pub of the year and then we won in 2017."

Steve has been bar manager and part owner since 2009. However, in 2016 he and his partner, Abi, took over solely and the pub has gone from strength to strength.
