A branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) has given formal recognition to a pub in West London for the variety and quality of its ales.
Graham Harrison, of CAMRA, has said:
“The Queen’s Head in Uxbridge is a worthy winner. Increasing the range has resulted in beers and breweries not previously seen in the branch area now being available.”
Joao Almeida has been using microbreweries to add to what he is able to offer customers. In addition, he has introduced a form of bingo to kindle the enthusiasm of drinkers. It is possible that he may use flyer printing in Ruislip Manor to draw attention to the prize that his establishment has received. Almeida used to run a pub in Harmondsworth before he took up his current position.
According to Harrison, Almeida knows a lot of information about different varieties of beer. This has meant that he has had the capacity to provide the kind of customer service that real ale buffs appreciate. His personal warmth has also been mentioned by Harrison.
The team at the pub beat competition from a wide area to win the prize. The local branch of CAMRA covers a territory that includes the bulk of Ealing, Wembley, Harrow, Hounslow and Hillingdon.
Almeida has said that a significant amount of hard work was responsible for the achievement.
