CAMpaign for Real Ale (CAMRA)

Welcome to the CAMRA’s  Arun & Adur Branch 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).

          Our 21st Beer Festival is now over for another year.

Friday night sold out again.

Saturday morning’s session featured a sing-a-long with the Wurlitzer Organ. Michael Wooldridge performed two sets that culminated in the massed voices of almost 500 joining in with the sing-a-long.


A behind the beers view of the finale.

Thank you to Simon Field and the Sussex Theatre Organ Trust for allowing the use of the mighty instrument, and Goldmark brewery for sponsoring the song sheets.

Watch out for next year!

Worthing now also boasts it’s fifth Micro Pub. The Grizzly Bear, featuring more Craft Beer, has now opened in South Street Tarring. Conveniently positioned between the Green Man and the Parsonage.


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

Congratulations to Anchored in Worthing. The first Micro-Pub in Sussex, has just added CAMRA Sussex and Surrey pub of the year to their award for Arun And Adur Branch pub of the year. Well done Nigel and Debbie. They now go into the final sixteen for National pub of the year.

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.
