On Tuesday 12 February, we headed to the Blake Hotel in Walkley for our first Pub of the Month award of 2019. As always, there was a good attendance from both branch members and pub regulars alike as the pub celebrated its first Pub of the Month award since August 2012.
There was a celebratory atmosphere and, as expected, a good selection of cask ales available, including a couple from Neepsend Brewery plus favourites such as Shiny and Mallinsons. There was also a first appearance for our new-look Pub of the Month certificate, which will take pride of place behind the bar.
Our vice-chairman Patrick Johnson was present to make the presentation on behalf of the branch to Dave Barber and the rest of the Blake Hotel team. Congratulations once again to everyone at the pub on their award!
