On 11 July, members headed to the Wisewood Inn in Loxley for the presentation of our Pub of the Month award for July 2017. The pub was packed to the rafters to see branch chairman Mick Saxton hand over the certificate to licensee Pat Bailey and his staff.
With its convivial atmosphere, eclectic decor and excellent range of beers, the Wisewood Inn was a shining example of how a pub can be completely turned around in just 18 months, and a worthy winner of our monthly prize. Real ales available on the night included Acorn Barnsley Bitter, Abbeydale Moonshine, Kelham Island Pale Rider, Ilkley Pale and Bradfield Farmer’s Brown Cow. The offer of free beer for CAMRA members was very much appreciated! In addition to the free beer, those in attendance were provided with a complimentary buffet of sandwiches, sausage rolls, pork pies and other party food.
Congratulations once again to the Wisewood Inn and everyone involved. CAMRA members, remember to vote for your Pub of the Month on our website or at the monthly branch meeting. Unfortunately, due to a lack of votes there will be no award for August. Let’s make sure that we have one in time for September!
