In 2006 members of the Campaign for Real Ale in the Tendring Peninsula voted to form their own branch. This meant that the area of North East Essex bounded roughly by the area East of the line from Brightlingsea to Manningtree - extending out to Clacton and Harwich would be a new branch of CAMRA separate from the Colchester & North East Essex Branch.

This seemingly unimportant event was, in fact, important to Tendring CAMRA members since they could now campaign more effectively at a local level - one of the guiding principles of our organisation.

So - if you think that Real Ale and Pubs are an important part of British life and in need of promotion, protection and celebration you might find this site right up your alley. Even if you find yourself annoyed, bored or even (heaven forbid) in disagreement with us we hope you'll find snippets or things here to amuse, provoke or otherwise pass the time.

This site is very much a work in progress so please keep checking back!

Tendring Pub of the Year - Hanover Inn, Harwich


Tendring CAMRA are pleased to announce that the Hanover Inn in Harwich is their Pub of the Year 2019! This is the first time the Hanover Inn has won the award, becoming the third Harwich pub to achieve this since the Tendring branch was formed. The Hanover Inn has been a regular CAMRA Good Beer Guide entrant in recent years. Congratulations to all the other pubs that were in the running. The Tendring CAMRA Pub of the Year is voted for by Tendring CAMRA members over two rounds of voting and a whole year of surveying. Phew - we've got to start all over again now!

Tendring Cider Pub of the Year - The Globe, Harwich

In-Cider News!

Tendring CAMRA are also pleased to announce that The Globe in Harwich is their Cider Pub of the Year 2019! Despite being the oldest pub still trading in Harwich this is the first time that the Globe has won the award (that we've only been awarding it for seven years is neither here nor there). This award is also based on the votes of Tendring CAMRA members with all branch members having the opportunity to vote. The criteria to be considered is to always have at least one real cider available throughout the year.

Harwich Pub Trail

Historic Harwich Pub Trail

Tendring CAMRA's collaboration with the Harwich Society has recently undergone a major refit to mark its third anniversary so you can find out even more about the ancient hostelries of Old Harwich.

If you need an excuse to visit (and soak up the atmosphere as well as some excellent real ales and ciders) the Harwich Ale Trail runs from Thursday 2nd May to Monday 6th May.
