The Rat & Ratchet, Huddersfield has won the Mild Pub of the Year 2009 award. The pub always has at least one guest mild on the bar (two on the night of the presentation!) – often unusual & interesting milds for our area. The pub also runs its annual Mild & Cider festival each year, when all the handpumps in the pub are devoted to mild – a unique event.
