A Sheffield pub is in the running to be named as the best in the country for the third time.
Kelham Island Tavern has been shortlisted in the Campaign for Real Ale’s National Pub of the Year award, which is judged on atmosphere, decor, service and quality of beer.
The pub has previously won the prestigious honour in 2008 and 2009.
It is going up against The Drovers Rest in Monkhill, Carlisle, recently named number one in the West Pennines; Sandford Park Ale House in Cheltenham, which only opened last year; and The Yard of Ale in Broadstairs, Kent, which is a micropub.
Roger Protz, editor of Camra’s Good Beer Guide, said: “Being named as one of the super region pubs in Britain is no easy task, and these pubs have worked hard to maintain a high level of calibre that other pubs around the country should look to.”
