A Kentish Town pub has scooped the Cider Pub of the Year award after years of appearing on the shortlist.
The Southampton Arms in Highgate Road gained the title after members of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) voted for the best place in north London to get a decent cider.
Landlord Peter Holt said: “We are super excited. We put a lot of effort into making sure our cider range is the best in London so it is great to be recognised for that.”
CAMRA north London branch chairman John Cryne said: “The Southampton has appeared on the short list on numerous occasions over the last few years, but has not quite got there so it’s great it has finally won.
“We are seeing an increasing number of pubs within north London selling cider so for the Southampton to win, it had to beat an increasing number of competitors,” he added.
