Welcome to

SWEssex CAMRA
Branch Website

Our branch visits pubs (and beer festivals) often. There's lots of choice as we cover such a large area, 313 pubs at the last count! However, we are trying (as part of the National Campaign) to draw attention to Quality - the Quality of the Pubs, and the Quality of the Beer! Why not support your local Branch by joining us at our regular weekly Social Events.
