Sam Smith (licensee) receives the award from Michael Robinson (Huddersfield CAMRA Chairman)
The Sportsman was the winner of this year’s Mild Pub of the Year award. Voting was open to CAMRA members, Ale Talk readers and regular drinkers. A staunch supporter of mild since it opened, the Sportsman always has a dedicated mild pump amongst the 8 handpumps on the bar. LocAle milds such as Golcar Mild, Mallinsons Emley Moor Mild & Taylors Dark Mild are often featured – though on this day it was Moorhouse’s Black Cat Mild from Burnley.
