What is CAMRA?

CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale is an independent, voluntary organisation campaigning for real ale, community pubs and consumer rights.

​CAMRA was formed in March 1971 by four men from the north-west who were disillusioned by the domination of the UK beer market by a handful of companies pushing products of low flavour and overall quality onto the consumer.

We will be starting some building work at The Royal Standard and will be closing the pub for a few days in order to get the work done as soon as possible.

We will be closed from Monday 20th January 2014 for a few days reopening on Friday 24th January 2014. Our apologies for any inconvenience but we are sure you will agree that the pub will benefit from the work and we look forward to welcoming you back to see the changes and, of course, enjoying a great pint!

Mad Goose – Back by popular demand!


After listening to our locals’ requests, we are delighted to announce that Mad Goose is tapped an back on the bar. Time to get down to your local and find out what else is on!

Mad Goose

Watch out for the Goose, her hiss is far worse than her bite, though she might drive you clucking mad, underneath it all she’s not that bad.

Mad Goose (4.2% ABV) is a zesty pale ale with a smooth and citrusy finish. Brewed with English Maris Otter, Caragold and Wheat malts, with Hallertau Northern Brewer bittering hops and Cascade and Willamette aroma hops. Winner of five awards.

Mad Goose is best served with white meats and poultry, such as pork, lamb or chicken.
