The Grantham bar that is the apple of Camra's eye
The Apple Tap cider bar in Westgate, Grantham, has received its third successive award from CAMRA.
The popular bar, which opened in 2013, was earlier this year declared Best Cider Pub for the third year running.
Grantham CAMRA branch chairman Neville Lomas said at last week’s presentation: “This award is particularly important in that not many establishments receive three awards on the trot. This is one to be noted. Well done to all concerned, Emma, David and all the staff and customers. Without them, you would be lost. You have done a great job. It needs to be applauded. Since the Apple Tap has opened, it has gone on from strength to strength.”
Owner Dave Goodwin thanked customers and staff, particularly manager Emma Mulsher, for their efficiency and loyalty. He told the Journal afterwards that the biggest challenge is finding new and different ciders, but customers also enjoy their regular favourites, including mango and apricot ciders.
Next, Grantham CAMRA plans to award certificates to long-serving landlords.
