One of Sheffield’s most treasured watering holes is in the running for the title of Yorkshire’s Favourite Pub.

The Broadfield Ale House on Abbeydale Road has made it to the final in the competition, run by tourism agency Welcome to Yorkshire.

More than 4,000 drinkers nominated 700 pubs in the competition, with Sheffield’s 19th century gem winning enough votes to secure its place on the shortlist of 30 before a panel of judges narrowed numbers down to 12.

The blue-tiled Broadfield is now set to go head-to-head with pubs in Leeds, Skipton, Ripon and Bridlington for the coveted title for 2013.

And residents of South Yorkshire are being urged to get behind the area’s only hopeful as public voting opens online.

Gary Verity, Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, said: “We have had a record number of entries and votes this year which is testament to the passion for pubs across Yorkshire.

“Pubs play a vital role in people’s lives, communities and in tourism.

“They are offering quality food, drinks and a warm welcome.”
