Pubs are nominated at a meeting, CAMRA members visit each one, judging the pub on the quality of its real ales. At another meeting members discuss each pub and then cast their votes.
The South West Regional Pub of the Year is Tom Cobley Tavern, in Spreyton.
The Plymouth Branch Pub of the Year is the Foxhound Inn, Brixton, and its City Pub of The Year is the Prince Maurice, Eggbuckland.
