A HUDDERSFIELD pub made it to the final of a competition to be named Music Pub of the Year.
The Bay Horse, at Lindley, fought off competition from hundreds of UK pubs to make it to the final six contenders for the title - which it won last year.
The competition is part of an annual awards scheme run by trade magazine The Publican.
The Music Pub of the Year category is sponsored by the Performing Right Society, the body which licenses the public performance of music and pays royalties to over 40,000 composers, songwriters and publishers according to how often their work is used.
The Bay Horse attended an awards ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, with the five other finalists - Bar Seven/Junktion 7 in Nottingham, The Famous Bein Inn of Perth, The Witchwood at Ashton-under-Lyne, The Blues Bar at Harrogate and Riff's Bar in Swindon.
The accolade of Music Pub of the Year went to Riff's Bar, with The Blues Bar as runner-up.
Judges commended The Bay Horse for its innovative use of music at themed nights and 1950s/1960s weekends.
Performing Right Society executive director John Axon said: "They are clearly making a huge impact with their music and have achieved great success."
