A PUB handy for rail passengers has won a real ale award.
The Station Tavern at Huddersfield railway station was named Winter Pub of the Season by Camra, the Campaign for Real Ale.
The award is the first of its kind for licensee Bruce Travis, who took over running the pub in August, 2003.
Since then, the pub has improved its range and quality of beers - earning a place in the 2004 and 2005 editions of the Camra Real Ale Guide.
Bob Tomlinson, of Huddersfield Camra, said the award recognised the pub's promotion of real ale and the success of efforts by Mr Travis and joint licensee Michelle Pursell to restore the pub to its former glory.
Work has included removing carpets to expose the pub's original mosaic floor and restoring its impressive black marble fireplace.
Two banks of hand pumps dispense cask-conditioned beers including ones from Timothy Taylor's, Oakham and Greenfield breweries, as well as Holme Valley Ales, Golcar Brewery and the Acorn Brewery.
The pub is a venue for live music and holds regular jazz nights, folk sessions and sing-alongs.
The Camra award followed recognition by the Sunday at Seven Group - a Huddersfield-based band of real ale enthusiasts who named the Station Tavern their Pub of the Year.
Mr Travis said: "I feel deeply flattered to be getting this attention. I was very surprised."
Mr Travis is now planning to remove the pub's false ceiling to restore the bar area to its original height.
Mr Tomlinson said: "This former station refreshment room is now a well-established real ale buffet bar joining the likes of the West Riding Licensed Rooms on Dewsbury station, the Head of Steam at the opposite end of Huddersfield station and the Railway Buffet Bar at Stalybridge."
