Barnsley Pub Hailed As County's Best Cider Venue

Wednesday August 7 2013


Yorkshire's best: Old No 7 Yorkshire's best: Old No 7


BARNSLEY'S Old No 7 pub has been hailed Yorkshire’s top cider venue.

The Yorkshire regional cider pub of the year accolade from CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) recognises the variety of ciders and perries on offer at the celebrated cask ale pub.

It's the latest in a clutch of awards for the historic hostelry in the town centre, re-launched as a place for quality cask ale and cider only two years ago.

Already the Market Hill pub has claimed the title of Barnsley CAMRA pub of the year for both 2012 and 2013 and last year was also voted runner up in the Yorkshire CAMRA pub of the year.

Nigel Croft, secretary of Barnsley CAMRA, said: "The Old No 7 is a credit to cider and perry drinkers. It has up to four available from behind the bar and on-hand pump as well as a selection in bottles.

"This cider award to the pub has put Barnsley on the map not just for its great beers but now ciders and perries."

Cider tasting sessions have been an important feature at the pub’s regular beer festivals.

"It's fantastic to win this award for our cider choice," manageress Fiona Holmes said. "Coming after our other awards so soon since we opened is a great boost to the pub and all the staff."
