Doncaster CAMRA

Campaign for Real Ale is a voluntary organisation consisting of over 145,000 ordinary drinkers, run by an unpaid, elected National Executive and backed by a small core of professional executives. It speaks for drinkers everywhere in fighting to save pubs and breweries from closure, and in attempting to improve quality and to ensure pub standards are raised.

Our branch covers  all of the Doncaster Metropolitan Borough as well as the Isle of Axholme in Lincolnshire, East Yorkshire as far as Goole and a small area of North Yorkshire.

The Gate House (Doncaster) Beer Festival starts this weekend (Friday, March 28th). 
The festival will include 50 beers from around the world and UK over a 3 week period. All for the amazing price of £1.99 a pint. The Gate House also offers 3 3rds of a pint so you can sample 3 different types of ale for the same price.

The launch will be Friday night from about 7-30/8-00. On the night there will also be blind tasting sessions on real ale and other products. There is a special beer festival food menu for the evening and there will also be the opportunity to sign up to CAMRA during the evening. Anyone who does join CAMRA on the night will receive a free pint, as the manager will buy you a pint!



Doncaster CAMRA features in The Star's "Save Our Pubs" campaign

Two pubs (Corner Pin & Little Plough) could soon be the first in Doncaster registered as community assets as part of a campaign to stop the borough losing its locals. Doncaster Campaign for Real Ale expects to file applications with Doncaster Council in the next month for the bars to be designated as ‘assets of community value’ under by the Localism Act.

It would mean that if the pubs owners wanted to sell the pubs to be redeveloped, they would have to notify the community, and give locals the chance to put together a bid to buy it themselves.

Doncaster CAMRA believes it would potentially stop pubs being sold to be converted into flats or supermarkets. The move comes as The Star is running its Save Our Pubs campaign to try to stop the pub closures the borough has seen in recent years.
