Barnsley boozer serves up best beer

Saturday 15th September 2012

One of Barnsley's best-known pubs has been hailed as among the country's finest.


The Old Number 7 on Market Hill was given a bronze award for best pub in Yorkshire and the north east by the Campaign for Real Ale.


The news was announced to coincide with the release of Camra's Good Beer Guide 2013.


The Old Number 7 was awarded Barnsley Camra pub of the year in July, putting it into the regional competition where it was placed joint third with the Old Cock at Otley, Leeds.


The overall winners were the Kelham Island Tavern, Sheffield (gold) and the Jemmy Hirst, Doncaster (silver).


The Old Number 7 was opened last year by Judy and Dave Hughes (Acorn Brewery, Wombwell) and business partner Michael Thorpe.


Fiona Holmes, Old Number 7 manager, said she was delighted to hear the news and thanked all her staff for their help in winning such an award in the short time the pub has been open.


The Good Beer Guide lists the Old Number 7 as well as another 14 real ale pubs and clubs in the Barnsley area.
