Pub of the Year 2012, Sportsman, Huddersfield

Branch Chairman Paul Laxton and Landlady Sam Smith surrounded by some of the staff.

The Sportsman wins Huddersfield CAMRA Pub of the Year 2012, and the award was presented on a busy Friday night as part of their 3rd birthday celebrations. The sympathetically restored heritage pub features eight handpumped beers, with LocAle beers featuring prominently – and none more LocAle than the Sportsman Brewing Company beers that are brewed in the cellar. The pub also features a good range of real cider, including Pure North from Netherthong.
