THE Prince Albert Pub in Ely has won a prestigious award for its real ale.
The historic pub, in Silver Street, is run by Ian and Tracy Waldock, who were notified by real ale giants Greene King that they had won the Head Brewer's Award from Greene King's taste ace John Bexon.
The award is decided by a team of incognito testers who assess the merits of pubs and the quality of the ales they serve.
Ian and Tracy, who only took over running the popular and picturesque Ely pub last year, were delighted as The Albert is the only Ely pub to scoop a prize. The nearest fellow winner being, The Tharp Arms in Chippenham.

The Albert has recently been refurbished, but Ian and Tracy are looking to re-decorate the pub further with ancient fenland pictures and would welcome any donations that locals may want to give them.
