Localness is the key to the Royal Oak on Weymouth’s quayside being named West Dorset Pub of the Year by the Campaign for Real Ale [CAMRA.]

It's the local touch that has helped the Royal Oak on Weymouth Quayside become the Campaign for Real Ale's 'West Dorset Pub of the Year'.

The pub fought of competition from over 250 rivals to get enough votes from the 600 members of the organisation to claim the prestigious title.

They praised the pub's warm atmosphere, its initiatives like the tasting tray and most importantly their choice and quality of the local real ales they serve.

CAMRA's West Dorset Branch Chairman, Dave Harris told Wessex FM: "The Royal Oak has a welcoming and friendly atmosphere with great views across the harbour."

"The staff are attentive and helpful. Beers are always in good condition - what more could you want?"

General Manager at the Royal Oak, Keith Treggiden said: "It is a real honour to win this award, especially as we've only been trading for 18 months."

"We owe our success to our great staff team and to our loyal, local drinkers who have supported us since day one and helped us come up with the right selection of beers and ciders."

Other ideas that have caught the public's imagination at the pub include encouraging dog walkers in, by putting a jar of dog biscuits on the bar.

The Campaign for Real Ale is an independent voluntary consumer organisation based in St Albans, England, whose main aims are promoting real ale, real cider and the traditional British pub.
