Welcome to the website of the North East Suffolk Branch of CAMRA

The NE Suffolk CAMRA branch meets at least once a month and this is usually on a Saturday.

We try to visit places served by public transport and we hope to continue getting the excellent attendances we have experienced to date. Start times are given as a guide and public transport connections are taken into account before starting any formal proceedings. We have started a Mid Month Meander in order to survey all the pubs in the branch area. Look out for these and join us if you can.

Branch socials and meetings are shown in the Branch Diary and Branch Events pages. They are also mentioned in What's Brewing and should appear in Last Orders, the newsletter of the Suffolk & North Essex CAMRA branches. Beer festivals run by pubs can be found listed on the Pub Events page.
