Both S. Fowler & Co. in Union Street, Ryde and The William Coppin at Coppins Bridge, Newport are listed in CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide for 2015.

Local branch members chose the pubs following regular visits to check on the quality of the real ales on offer.  They also took into account customer service, décor and overall atmosphere.

A CAMRA spokesman said:

“The pubs deserve their place in the Good Beer Guide 2015.

“It is our belief that if a licensee serves an excellent pint of real ale, then everything else in the pub, including customer service, quality of food and atmosphere, are likely to be of an equally high standard.”

The William Coppin pub manager, Catherine Biscombe, said:

“I am delighted that the pub has been recognised for the quality of its real ales by CAMRA members.

“We offer our customers an excellent range of real ales at all times, including those from regional brewers and microbrewers, as well as hosting our own beer festivals.

“Staff at the pub work hard to ensure that the real ales on offer are kept in first-class condition at all times and the pub’s inclusion in the guide highlights this.”
