23rd Battersea Beer Festival Pubs

Pub of the Year

The result of the CAMRA SW London Pub of the Year for 2012 was announced from the stage at 4pm on Thursday 7th February 2013 by the Mayor of Wandsworth.

Pub of the Year 2012 Result

This was a well deserved win for the Eagle Ale House which had been in second place for each of the previous two years.


All 1,500+ South West London CAMRA branch members were entitled to vote for their favourite pub from the seven short-listed pubs on the voting form they received with the branch Christmas mailout.

Tip: If you attended the festival on Wednesday or early on Thursday (before 2pm) you were able to save the cost of postage by bringing your voting form with you and leaving it in the box provided on the product stand near the main entrance.

Please Note: Anyone could enter the "just for fun" poll on this page, whether a CAMRA member or not. This year result of this poll had the same winner as the official vote, with the other places shifting around a bit.
