The Yarborough Hunt – Pub of the Season
We are very proud to announce that our brewery tap, The Yarborough Hunt in Brigg has been awarded Pub of the Season Winter 2014, by Scunthorpe CAMRA. Pictured above is Tom Wood and Lucy Fensome (landlady) after proudly being given their award.
If you haven’t been to visit our excellent pub, even if we do say ourselves it is a pretty impressive watering hole! The pub has been open since 2003 and was originally a house which was converted to its current use. The conversion was tastefully done, and keeps a large number of the traditional features of a building of this age. The bar is compact, which when busy means you become a master at gracefully carrying pints whilst snaking through the other customers waiting to buy, but holds a wide range of alcoholic beverages.
Having seven hand pulls on the bar, means you can always get a pint of Tom Wood’s beer (including the seasonal beer of the moment), with the extra room to have three other guest beers. It’s not only beer that we do well, but the pub also sells Leffe Blonde, Riegele Privat, Riegele Weiss and Bellevue Kriek for those not taken by cask ales.
Fancy rounding your evening off with a nightcap? Look no further than the top shelf, which boasts a large selection of malt whiskies. It’s not only the evening trade we cater for, but during the day you will often find people enjoying a lovely latte or cappuccino in front one of the three roaring fires we keep going through the cold winter months.
If you’re looking for a pub which has a dancefloor, a jukebox or a pool table you will probably be disappointed, we are firm believers in enjoying a drink in a social environment providing a home from home experience which will hopefully mean you look forward to coming back!
Speaking to landlady Lucy about the award she has this to say:
“I am very proud to accept this award from the Scunthorpe branch of CAMRA. In the five years in which I have been managing the pub it is one of the crowning moments so far. The pub is a great place to work and to drink, and credit where credit is due, the staff and customers make the pub the way it is. I am incredibly pleased that we have been recognised as a good place to drink and one that also serves excellent beer to boot!”
