Pub Of The Year Title For Barnsley Favourite

Monday September 23 2013

Old No 7 Old No 7

THA waint find a better pint of ale anywhere else in Yorkshire - and it's now official. The Old No 7 has been recognised as the jewel in the crown of Barnsley's real ale watering holes after being named Yorkshire's Pub of the Year - just two years after opening.

It was given the accolade by the Campaign for Real Ale group and now the pub, on Market Hill, will be judged among 16 regional winners as finalists in CAMRA's national awards next year.

A spokesman from the group said: "This Acorn Brewery-owned bar boasts seven real ales and one cider/perry, all on handpump.

"Two further ciders/perries are usually found behind the bar, plus an extensive range of quality foreign beers.

"The attentive staff and well-run bar attract a broad clientele including circuit drinkers, football fans and beer connoisseurs, who are all made equally welcome."

The non-food pub was re-launched as a 'haven' for quality cask ale and cider in 2011.

Acorn Brewery co-founder Dave Hughes said being given the award was 'fantastic'. 

"This accolade as the top pub in Yorkshire justifies all the blood, sweat and tears we endured to open the pub in what was really a cask ale desert at the time," he added.
