Huddersfield pubs get primed for the World Cup
HUDDERSFIELD’S pubs and bars are gearing up for a lively World Cup.
Traditionally the tournament sparks a massive boost for the beer trade and the town’s landlords have come up with their own schemes to get the punters in.
The Head of Steam at St George’s Square has even come up with a special menu with a distinctly English flavour.
Dishes include Peperooney Pasta, John Terryaki Chicken and Theo Wallcottage Pie which, despite the England manager Fabio Capello’s decision to drop Theo Walcott, will still be available.
Manager Ian Kilpatrick said: “We are showing all the games but in classic football style – it’s going to be a pub of two halves.
“We have four rooms and the games will be on in two of them so if you’re not such a fan it won’t be too much in your face.
“We’re a real ale pub too so we’ve got some specially made ones.
“They’re called They Drink it’s All Over and England Expects.
At the Bay Horse in Lindley, landlord Stephen Pyke is not hedging his bets. The pub has been turned into a shrine to England and there’s plenty of themed events scheduled.
