The West Norfolk branch of CAMRA, presented The Stag at West Acre the prestigious award of West Norfolk Branch Pub of the Year 2005, last night. The pub was full to the brim with locals who created a great party atmosphere with a buffet and musical entertainment
Paul and Sally Figura, licensees of the Stag said “We are overwhelmed with winning this award, especially being in the business for only 2 years. We would like to thank, Mr Henry Burbeck for having faith in us and Iceni brewery for keeping up with our real ale demands, our daughters Serina and Jessica for all the hard work they have put in with us, and all our family, friends and loyal customers for their support.”
The Stag at West Acre is a new entry into CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide in 2005. Described as “What was a tiny, single room has now been extended and a dining room added, leaving plenty of space for those who just want to drink.” The Stag now sells three varying, interesting beers, including at least one from a micro brewery.
Tim Spitzer, Chairman of West Norfolk CAMRA said "Paul and Sally have made a brilliant job of transforming the Stag into everything a village pub should be - warm and welcoming- and with an obvious commitment to serving real ale. The pub offers something for everyone and is right at the heart of the village community."
