The Railway Arms in Downham has been awarded the East Anglia Cider Pub of the Year award.

Its success means that the Railway will move on to the next stage of the competition where they will be judged along with regional winners from throughout the country.

The range of ciders and perries available at pub has grown over the years and they now regularly sell seven including some from nearby new producer, the Downham Cider Company.

Ian and Callum Pinches, who run the Railway Arms said “ We are very pleased to receive the regional award again and work actively with cider producers both locally and around the country to promote real cider.”

Andrea Briers, CAMRA’s East Anglia regional director and chairman of CAMRA’s cider and perry committee said, “A visit to the Railway Arms will give you the opportunity to try a range of ciders and perries from local producers and those further afield. Well done to Ian and Callum and I wish them well in the next round of the competition.”
