CAMpaign for Real Ale (CAMRA)

Welcome to the CAMRA’s  Arun & Adur Branch new  look web-site. It is still very much “work in progress” but will soon be a 'one-stop-shop' for information and news about pubs, real ale and branch events (socials, meetings and the Worthing Beer Festival).

The Winter edition of the Sussex Drinker is now available here.

Congratulations to Nick and Paula at the Brooksteed Ale House in Worthing on winning Arun And Adur Pub Of The Year, Sussex Branches and Sussex and Surrey Branches Pub Of The Year.








The 20th Arun And Adur beer festival was held on 14th -15th October at the Assembly Hall in Stoke Abbott Road, Worthing.

The move to the Assembly Hall allowed us to increase the capacity, number of beers and as requested in feedback, extra tables and seating.

Among the 2000 festival goers who managed to consume more than 7800 pints, were 133 new members who joined CAMRA. Planning for next year is already under way.


Wothing’s newest micro pub,The Green Man, just north of the West Worthing level crossing, has now opened. A fine selection of changing beers, plus cider and wines are available. We wish them success for the future.


After nine months of closure, the Castle Tavern in Worthing, has re-opened, as the Castle Ale House. A great selection of real ales, ciders, craft and bottled beers plus wines are available.

 Quiz Night Tuesday and live entertainment most weekends.










The Arun & Adur branch area covers the area between the rivers Arun (in the west) and Adur (in the east) and the A272 (in the north), with the sea being the southern boundary (map). This means that Arundel, Lancing, Littlehampton, Petworth, Pulborough, Steyning, Storrington, Worthing and the many villages, all form part of the branch. There are nearly 200 pubs and bars in our branch area and over 155 serve real ale, and there are over 800 branch members.

Come to one of our meetings or socials and see how you can help promote real ale. All members are welcome.

If you would like to join the the Arun & Adur Branch email group all you need to do is subscribe. This is a group of, mainly, local members who are alerting others to pub and real ale information - as it happens - in the local area.

CAMRA's mission is to act as champion of the consumer in relation to the United Kingdom and European beer and drinks industry. CAMRA aims to:
