The Yarborough Hotel, Grimsby, has been named ‘Pub of the Year 2009’ by branch members of the Grimsby and Northeast Lincolnshire CAMRA.
It is the second successive year that the pub has won the title – beating off competition from an original list of more than 200 real-ale-serving pubs in the region.
The pub serves 10 beers at all times and features 50 beers at the two Wetherspoon beer festivals.
Pub duty manager Iain Oaten (pictured front left, receiving the award) said: “All of the staff at the pub are absolutely delighted to have retained the title.
“It is especially rewarding as the pub has been voted the best, ahead of so many other good pubs in the region.”
CAMRA’s branch chairman, Graham Larn (pictured front right), said: “The main attribute which our members seek, when selecting their pub of the year, is the quality and range of real ales on offer.
“Since The Yarborough Hotel opened in 1997, it has brought a range of real ales not previously served in Grimsby’s pubs.
“In addition, the cleanliness of the pub and the choice of food, as well as the friendliness of the staff, are all taken account of by our branch members, when they cast their vote – and The Yarborough Hotel ticks all of the boxes.”
