This pubs claim to fame is that it hosted the first CAMRA AGM.A Marston's tied house,it still has a seperate public bar to the front,with a darts board but not even lit on my Wednesday evening visit.All the regulars head to the back lounge,L shaped with a pool table,sports flat screens,a banquette infront of a gas fire and a classic pop hits soundtrack.Now I realise that the Anker Valley has a reputation for poor health,but all the regulars and the barmaid were super sized and shuffling about.I was an obvious stranger in this environment.
Just the one handpump of three operational with a well kept Banks's Amber (NBSS 3.5,the highest rating I could award this rather dull brew) but with most of the regulars drinking lager I doubt if the real ale range will increase.Is this enough to justify it's GBG 2022 inclusion ? I'm not sure.

The GBG 2022 dropped on my doormat the day before I visited Nuneaton and this was a new entry, having not been in the previous five editions.

For the life of me, I cannot think why a single beer Marstons House would get in the GBG. There may be a clue in the previous review.

I am nothing if not determined, so I queued at the bar for 5 minutes to get my Banks Amber. No one was behind the bar. No one came.

I felt like a lemon and left.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Rose Inn

Unmodernised Marston's pub located a short walk south of the town centre. Retaining a two-bar layout, with a pool table in the front and an extended opened-out lounge at the back with several seating areas. Traditional furniture and decor throughout. Burton Bitter and Pedigree (£3.10) from two of three handpumps on each counter. You wouldn't know it now unless you spot the small display, but this establishment holds its place in history as the four founders of Camra and a few of their friends held the organisation's first AGM here in 1972.
