Pub manager Barry Back proudly shows off his pub-of-the-season award outside his pub in Sale, Manchester.
The J. P. Joule was voted ‘best in the area’, for summer 2010, by Trafford and Hulme CAMRA branch members.
Its branch secretary, Andy Jenkinson, said: “Barry and his team work hard to welcome and look after all of their customers, providing a comfortable ambience, good food and especially well-presented ales.
“In the four years for which Barry has been manager at the pub, he has been keen to improve the quality of the real ales on offer."
