A HUDDERSFIELD pub has been judged the best by a real ale group.
The Vulcan, St Peter’s Street, was awarded Pub of Year 2007 by Sunday At Seven Real Ale Group (SASRAG).
The pub won the award for its range of beers, food, entertainment and landlord Peter Woodhead’s presence behind the bar.
The SASRAG annual award is made to the pub which has served quality real ale throughout the year and made an effort to give customer choice.
The choice is made from pubs in Huddersfield and Calderdale.
Previous winners have included The Grove, Springwood, and the Drop (formerly the Oddfellows), Elland.
SASRAG leader Alan Rawlinson said: “Community pubs are closing, so it is good to see one buck the trend.
“The Vulcan in Huddersfield continues to thrive and cater to its many customers.
“The secret to a successful pub is to give the customer a fair deal; a place to escape and relax amongst company, good conversation, a good range of quality beers at a reasonable price, good food and good entertainment – be it sports TV or just pool – and finally, a landlord who spends time behind the bar or in the pub. The Vulcan is all of these.”
