Red Lion named Pub of the Year
Article date: 01 May 2009

The Red Lion has been named as ‘Pub of the Year’, for 2009, by members of Doncaster’s CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) branch.

The pub’s manager, Paul Sanderson, was presented with a framed certificate to mark the award by Doncaster’s CAMRA’s vice-chairman Ian Round (pictured).

The Wetherspoon pub beat off competition from numerous pubs in the town to win the award.

Paul said: “I am delighted that The Red Lion won the award. It is testament to the hard work of all of the staff here who keep and serve an excellent range of real ales.

“We serve five guest beers at all times from microbrewers across the UK, many of which are brewed in the region, as well as three nationally known beers.

“Among the regional brewers which we support are Acorn (Wombwell), Elland (Elland), Old Bear (Keighley), Saltaire (Bradford) and Thornbridge (Bakewell).

“Our customers are enthusiastic about their real ales and are delighted that their pub has been recognised by CAMRA.”

The editor of Donny Drinker (Doncaster’s CAMRA’s quarterly magazine), Martin Clark, said: “The Red Lion offers discerning drinkers the best of both worlds: a great range of real ales, served in excellent condition, all at Wetherspoon’s great-value prices, in what is very much a traditional pub environment.

“Paul has done a tremendous job in raising the real-ale profile in his pub, plus offering a warm welcome and efficient service – from the helpful and friendly staff.”
