A fine winner

Welcome to the Rutland CAMRA Web page. From Jon Whowell Chairman Rutland CAMRA Chair@rutlandcamra.org.uk

We are a body of over 200+ men & women, most of whom live in Rutland, who are dedicated to preserving Real Ales & Cider in Real Pubs and Clubs for Real People like you and me. In these awful times the Pubs of Rutland have striven to keep both their customers and communities happ. Beer deliveries, beer & food takeaways and serving windows have helped . The licensees, staff and suppliers are to be praised and thanked for doing this vital work.

Now its up to all of us to support your local, and if safe , not so locals.

Obey the instructions, they are there for your benefit. Do not try and be clever or it will be back to lockdown for an even longer period.

We all feel for the pubs and businesses in Leicester and hope that this can be resolved safely soon. Some of our pubs in the “border” regions have not opened as they have justifiable concerns for safety.

So come on we are all adults, now is the time to show it, be safe, be kind and enjoy your next pint as soon as you can. Jon Whowell 13th July 2020


Meetings are usually held around the County on the 2nd Thursday of the month, details on the Events page, we also hold social and survey trips which usually involve visiting pubs – very hard work. So do keep an eye for these.

Enough from me, thank you for visiting us and I hope you come and support us and our Pubs soon.
