A HUDDERSFIELD pub has received a top award.
The Field Head at Quarmby has been voted the pub of the season for winter by Huddersfield's branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (Camra).
This is the third time that licensees Russell and Lorraine Beverley have won the top award in the last 10 years.
But it is the last time at this particular pub.
Russell has started brewing his own ales in recent years and is setting up his own brewery in an industrial unit at Upper Mills in Slaithwaite.
He said: "I was quite pleased to win, especially in the final part of the tenancy, because we can go out on a high.
"We leave here next Sunday and hopefully the brewery will be up and running a few weeks after that." His brewery will include his own creation, Empire Strikes Back, five other beers and specials.
Asked about the secret of running a good pub, Russell replied: "Liking hard work and liking people. If you don't like people you've no chance!"
The award was presented to Russell by the Camra branch pubs officer Jonathan Smith, who praised the couple for their "outstanding effort in promoting real ale".
