Well done to The Star in Whiteshill!

Stroud Life recently reported that the Campaign for Real Ale has judged The Star in Whiteshill as one of the best locals for a pint. Well done indeed to them. It has been a remarkable journey - some years ago the pub was suffering and many thought was in terminal decline - now it is a vibrant heart of our community - and what's more the beers are great!

Here is what Stroud Life wrote: "The pub is a new entry in the 2012 Good Beer Guide published by Camra. Stroud Camra members were on hand to toast the guide's launch at The Star. It is one of nine locals in the area picked for the range and quality of their ales. The new guide lists 4,500 of the best pubs in Britain for real ale, all chosen by local Camra members, serving beers from more than 800 breweries. The other eight locals in the guide are the Butcher's Arms in Sheepscombe, the Clothier's Arms and Crown & Sceptre in Stroud, Crown Inn in Frampton Mansell, Prince Albert in Rodborough, Woodchester's Ram Inn, The Weighbridge in Minchinhampton and Woolpack in Slad."
