Lavenham Greyhound Scoop Award

Press release - July 2016


The Lavenham Greyhound, Suffolk are celebrating this week after scooping a prestigious award for the quality of their beer, based on an independent inspection from the real ale auditors, Cask Marque.

They passed a rigorous inspection from a Cask Marque assessor, who is a qualified brewer with extensive senior level experience working in the cask ale industry.

Xanita Jobe, Manager at The Lavenham Greyhound said “This award is a great endorsement for us.  A lot of our customers visit the pub especially for the cask ale and it is really gratifying to know that we are getting the quality just right.”

The pub is now part of the ‘World’s Biggest Ale Trail’, where users of the CaskFinder app visit Cask Marque accredited pubs to try the ale.

Since its foundation in 1997, Cask Marque has inspected over 600,000 pints of beer and accredited over 9,700 of the country’s 60,000 pubs estimated to serve one or more cask conditioned ales.

Cask Marque Director, Paul Nunny, said: “The Team at The Lavenham Greyhound should feel justifiably proud of this excellent achievement, which not only recognises the effort they put into serving the perfect pint but also acts as an independent guarantee of quality for their customers.

“All too often, publicans don’t appreciate the care and attention cask beers require and then run the risk of losing custom by serving pints that are below par.”
