The Rat & Ratchet was the joint Runner Up in the Yorkshire CAMRA Cider Pub of the Year 2011. Six real ciders and two real perries are always available at the pub. David Litten who presented the award commented that over 200 pubs in Yorkshire now serve real cider and it was a real achievement to finish in the top three. He also praised the Rat for it’s range of real cider and the information displayed about the ciders & perries that were on offer.

Huddersfield CAMRA also presented the Rat & Ratchet with their Mild Pub of the Year 2011 award. The Rat is a great supporter of mild, and there is always one on offer. The pub also runs an annual Mild & Cider Festival, a unique event.
