  The Steel Tank Alehouse - Southern Hampshire CAMRA Pub of the Year 2019 The Steel Tank Alehouse, Chandler's Ford is Southern Hampshire CAMRA Pub of the Year 2019
We're delighted to announce our local branch's Pub of the Year 2019. This year's winner is The Steel Tank Alehouse in Central Precinct, Chandler's Ford. The finalist pubs were each visited by four volunteer judges, who assessed them against CAMRA's national Pub of the Year scoring criteria (which will also be used in the regional and national competitions). The four finalists, selected by CAMRA members before the judging, also included: The Guide Dog, Southampton (last year's winner); Steam Town Brew Co., Eastleigh and Witch's Brew, Southampton. A formal presentation of this award will be announced in due course.
