Alma Arms landlord Ben Martin and manager Michelle Morris are celebrating seeing the pub in the Camra Good Beer Guide for the eighth year in a row.
They say they are the only Uckfield pub in the guide.
Ben said: “The people from Camra come round, test the beer and score it. There are only a limited number of places in the guide and we are very pleased to be in it.”
He added The Alma was well-known for keeping its bitter well and it was a matter of pride to him to hold on to that reputation. The seasonal ale from October 1 will be The Star of Eastbourne, a customer favourite.
There’s another cause for celebration at The Alma because the pub was chosen as runner-up for a Silent Customer award by Harvey’s Brewery.
Ben said: “When you think there are more than 40 pubs in the group that’s quite an achievement.”
The pub has launched a new winter menu and announced its Christmas and Christmas Day menus too. You can see all on the Alma website.
Pub dates for your diary include Tuesday, December 11, when Uckfield Concert Brass will be playing Christmas Carols, Wednesday, December 19, when the Ashdown Singers will be carol singing there and Monday, December 31, when there will be a New Year’s Eve disco.
