Having won the Ayrshire & Wigtownshire CAMRA Club of the Year title, Garnock Community Social Club in Kilbirnie, has been awarded the title Scotland & Ireland CAMRA Club of the Year 2016.

The club, which had been closed for a number of years, reopened 2 years ago under new management and with a new committee.  Thanks to their positive attitude and enthusiasm, the club is once more a major hub within the local community opening 7 days a week and the introduction of real ale has been a major success.
