CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale, has announced a list of 210 Local Pubs of the Year to help launch its Community Pubs Month.
This is the shortlist for the CAMRA National Pub of the Year to be declared in early 2015.
On the list is The Nag’s Head at Abingdon which has the Thames Path passing the door. Indeed it is on Abingdon Bridge and after along closure reopened in 2012. Within a year it was Oxfordshire’s pub of the year.
Real ale includes Abingdon brewed Abingdon Bridge ale and the food is good.
Meanwhile there are plans for a theatre on the downstream end of Nag’s Head Island.
The 350-seat theatre would only be used in the summer with daytime availability for amateur groups and buskers. The project team is seeking funding.
