A Yorkshire pub is in the finals of CAMRA's National Pub of the Year

The Kelham Island Tavern is in with a chance of winning National Pub of the Year for a third time, having won the prestigious award in both 2008 and 2009.

The Sheffield pub is one of  four supreme regional finalists of CAMRA‘s Pub of the Year competition who will have a chance to win the National Pub of the Year competition, won last year by The Salutation Inn in Gloucestershire.
The pubs are judged on their atmosphere, decor, welcome, service, value for money, customer mix, but most importantly – quality of beer.

The Good Beer Guide’s Editor, Roger Protz, praised the top four pubs, all featured in the Good Beer Guide 2016. “Being named as one of the super region pubs in Britain is no easy task, and these pubs have worked hard to maintain a high level of calibre that other pubs around the country should look to. These four pubs will now be judged against each other to be crowned the best pub in Britain.”

Having been in this position previously, Trevor Wraith, Manager at the Kelham Island Tavern said: “Following on from coverage that Sheffield has the best selection of real ales in the country and the recent announcement that we were judged as CAMRA‘s ’Yorkshire Pub of the year 2015’, it is an honour to have reached the supreme pubs part of the top 16 in the national part of the competition again. All we can do is carry on stocking a wide range and variety of well kept cask beers, in a clean, friendly and welcoming atmosphere and that seems to be the key”.
