Local pub is runner-up in the  Yorkshire Pub of the Year 2019

Could your local be the next Pub of the Year?

CAMRA’s National Pub of the Year is our annual competition to find the very best cask ale pub in the UK. We’ve been highlighting the best pubs in the country since 1988, and the competition helps to showcase quality pubs around the UK that are worth seeking out and visiting. It’s all about finding the cream of the crop and the best place for you to enjoy a pint of real ale.

Each year, local CAMRA branches nominate one pub in their area. These 200 pubs go through to the regional competition, selecting 16 top pubs, which whittles down to the four super-regional finalists – one of which will become the ultimate winner.

This year our Branch nominated pub was the Fox & Goose, Hebden Bridge, a community owned pub that has excelled in offering good beer in a comfortable welcoming environment. It is a community owned and run pub and it merely reinforces the widely held view that pubs are ideal as a centre for the local community.

All of this would be good enough but the fact is that CAMRA recognises its contribution to maintaining a wide range of good beer in excellent condition and in offering something for all, whether a welcoming cup of coffee on a chilly morning to a refreshing pint of “craft” lager on a sunny afternoon it is providing a service to the community.

Halifax & Calderdale branch recognised the merits of this pub in awarding it our Pub of the Year Award 2019 in March and this has now been recognised regionally as it is the runner-up in the Yorkshire Pub of the Year 2019.

Congratulations to Hannah Thurman & her team.
The award will be presented by Peter Goddard Deputy Regional Director (Yorkshire) on Saturday October 12th at 2pm
