I’ve just been reading the latest edition of Beer Matters and saw the section on pubs that offer discounts to CAMRA members.
As a fully paid up member I can confirm that I have been taking advantage of the following offers in pubs near where I live:
Rising Sun, Abbey Lane – 20p off a pint
Robin Hood, Millhouses – 20p off a pint
Waggon & Horses, Millhouses – 10% off a pint
I’ve saved £££s with these over the last year or so, and with the Wetherspoon vouchers I have more than made up my annual membership fee! J
The Rising Sun has four or five real ales on (three of them guests) whilst the Robin has up to 7 on, (up to five of which are guests). The guest ales tend to be national brews as both pubs are Mitchel’s and Butlers. The ale in both pubs is well kept and we like the Rising Sun in particular as it is an old fashioned, traditional pub (if you get in later after the eating has tailed off – late Saturday and Sunday evenings are bliss).
The Waggon has up to three ales on, all of which vary, but tend to be from local breweries, including Abbeydale, Kelham Island, Thornbridge and Bradfield. It is mainly a grill pub, but has recently got Cask Marque accreditation so it is trying to attract drinkers. It does however tend to die out once the diners have gone home.
I consider myself lucky that these pubs, all offering discounts, are within walking distance for me – happy to spread the word about the discounts via Beer Matters.
