THE Black Star in Stourport is over the moon after being named ‘pub of the summer’.

Members of Wyre Forest CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) gathered at the High Street establishment to award their accolade of Pub of the Season for Summer 2022.

Wyre Forest CAMRA described the pub as “perfect for enjoying a pint of real ale or cider in the summer sunshine surrounded by colourful flowers whilst watching narrowboats pass by”. 

The Black Star has been awarded by the group regularly since Maria and Andy Gooding arrived in Stourport in 2015. 

It was the Branch’s choice as Pub of the Summer and Pub of the Autumn in 2017, and the given Runners-up silver award for Pub of the Year in 2018. 

The award for Pub of Spring 2019 was followed by the ultimate accolade of Pub of the Year in 2020.
