The West Riding Refreshment Rooms at Dewsbury Railway Station has been named as Pub of the Year by the local branch of the Campaign for Real Ale.

Proud bar manager Ros Arden was presented with the award by chairman of the Heavy Woollen branch of CAMRA, Alan Mapplebeck.

Secretary of the Heavy Woollen branch of CAMRA Paul Dixey said: “The team has worked hard to maintain an interesting selection not only of cask ales but also traditional cider and perry.”

But the pub, which is part of the Transpennine Real Ale Trail and was made famous by Oz Clarke and James May, is no stranger to success.

Paul Dixey said it had won the local and regional award several times before, and was named as a runner-up in the National competition.
