An audience showing rapt attention as Brian begins his tribute to The Hop in Saltaire, when the pub was presented with a plague to commemorate its installation as Bradford CAMRA’s Pub of the Year.
The Hop is a worthy winner, this time first among some fabulous competition. It ticked all the necessary boxes for the judges, with just enough vigour to overcome the rest. But is was very close.
Brian and manager Paul are best mates right now, and the colourful plague will be adorning the wall of the pub. Run by Ossett Brewery, the beer range offered in this pub includes many from the whole brewing portfolio, not just the Ossett brand.
