The King’s Arms in Tring has been crowned ‘Champion Pub of the Year’ by the Mid-Chilterns branch of the Campaign for Real Ale.

The pub, which sits on the Buckinghamshire/Hertfordshire border was nominated for their offer of local cask ale and hospitality, along with other qualities such as a ‘gorgeous, traditional interior’ and a well-regarded food menu.

They were recognised by the Campaign for Real Ale [CAMRA], which is thought to be the biggest consumer organisation in Europe and was set up in the early 1970s to protect cask beer and British pubs.

Rob Muirhead, the owner and landlord at The King’s Arms, took to the helm of the pink-painted pub in 2014, celebrating a decade of service in January of this year.

He said: “We are delighted to receive this recognition from CAMRA.

“We have always prided ourselves on our real ales and to receive this award is a privilege and an honour.”

Jared Ward, chairman of Mid-Chilterns CAMRA, added: "I am very excited to announce The King’s Arms as our champion Pub of the Year.

“Congratulations to Rob now in his second decade of ownership, and to Gavin and the team for their unwavering dedication to hospitality and real ale.”
