The Prince Albert pub in Ely has been listed among the top 200 locals in the country by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA).
The pub, in Silver Street, joins The Mill, in Cambridge, and the Hand and Heart, in Peterborough, as Cambridgeshire’s representatives going forward into the East Anglian finals.
Should it come through that stage, it will go on to compete for the title of national pub of the year.
The Prince Albert was voted among the top 200 by members of the Ely and District branch of CAMRA
Tom Stainer, of CAMRA, said “Pubs play an essential role in our communities and are clearly very highly valued, but despite this are still being lost at an alarming rate across the UK.

“The best way people can protect their local’s future is by getting down there and supporting it – which is why throughout April CAMRA will be calling on people to visit their local pub and support an important British industry.”
According to CAMRA, the UK is losing 29 pubs a week.
