A VICTORIAN town centre pub has been given an award by real ale fans.
The Albert pub in Victoria Lane was named Huddersfield Camra's Spring Pub of the Season.
The award was presented to licensees David and Sally Robertson by Camra official Bob Tomlinson.
The award recognised their efforts to improve the quality of beer at the pub, which had been affected by frequent changes in licensees and ownership.
The Robertsons took charge at The Albert in June last year. Mr Robertson previously worked for the Head of Steam in St George's Square and in Liverpool.
The Albert's range of ales includes Timothy Taylor's Landlord, Black Sheep Bitter, Marston's Pedigree, Theakston's Mild and Deuchar's IPA, as well as guest beers.
Mr Tomlinson said: "The award is in recognition of their hard work in turning around beer quality and the fortunes of the pub."
Camra also congratulated the owners of the pub - built in 1879 - for keeping its stained-glass partitions, a marble-topped mahogany bar, photos of old Huddersfield and a large Bass Red Triangle mirror.
The pub hosts meetings by groups such as the Royal Air Force Association, Huddersfield French Circle and a Laurel and Hardy fan club, as well as The Albert Poets.
