It’s a family affair as two pubs in Bedford run by a mother and daughter have been recognised with CAMRA awards.
The Devonshire Arms, based in Dudley Street and The Burnaby Arms in Stanley Street, Bedford, which are run by the same family, have won awards in this year’s Campaign For Real Ale (CAMRA) in the North Beds region.
The Devonshire Arms, run by Martin Bartlett and Naomi Stanford, have won the title of North Beds Pub of the Year.
And The Burnaby Arms, run by Naomi’s daughter Lucie Fuller and her husband Stephen, has won the Most Improved Pub award.
Both the pubs are owned by Charles Wells and they both have been spruced up by the brewery and the landlords in the last couple of years.
Neither pub serves food, but focuses on offering a traditional drinking experience,
And they are not the only successes for Bedfordshire, as The Bedford Arms in Souldrop has also won North Beds Country Pub of the Year.
The pub is a former winner of Pub of the Year in 2011, and offers traditional pub food and real ale.
The pub was facing closure in 2005, but it was bought out and renovated, and is now run by Fred and Caroline Rich.
Certificates will soon be presented to all three pubs.
