  The Steel Tank Alehouse - Southern Hampshire CAMRA Pub of the Year 2019 presentation Southern Hampshire CAMRA Pub of the Year 2019 award presentation
A warm Wednesday evening saw the crowds descend on The Steel Tank Alehouse in Central Precinct, Chandler's Ford, so many that there was queuing to get in - a case of 'one out, one in' for a while. The occasion was the presentation of Southern Hampshire CAMRA's Pub of the Year 2019 award to the Steel Tank Alehouse. Pictured is publican Adam Beal (left) receiving the award from competition organiser Alex Presland. Congratulations to Adam for creating such a welcome establishment. The Steel Tank Alehouse now goes forward to the Wessex Regional Pub of the Year competition.
