Branch members of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) have acclaimed The Blacksmith’s Forge pub in Dalkeith for the quality of its real ale.
A CAMRA spokesman said: “The pub deserves its place in the Good Beer Guide 2015.
“It is our belief that if a licensee serves an excellent pint of real ale, then everything else in the pub, including customer service, quality of food and atmosphere, are likely to be of an equally high standard.”
The Blacksmith’s Forge pub manager James Paton, said: “I am delighted that the pub has been recognised for the quality of its real ales by CAMRA members.
“We offer our customers an excellent range of real ales at all times, including those from regional brewers and microbrewers, as well as hosting our own beer festivals.
“Staff at the pub work hard to ensure that the real ales on offer are kept in first-class condition at all times and the pub’s inclusion in the guide highlights this.”
