Season’s Greetings from Otley Pub Club!
We’re not sending a full newsletter out this month, but on behalf of Otley Pub Club, I want to wish all our members and Otley’s famous pubs and those who run and work in them a happy festive season.
We’re set for a good Christmas and New Year, with lots happening and it’s always great to see the effort many of the pubs have gone too with Christmas decorations. Some of our pubs look like Christmas cards!
Victorian Fayre – Junction win the Elise Brumfitt Trophy
A big thanks to all the pubs who took part in the annual Elise Brumfitt Victorian Alehouse Award at this years Victorian Fayre for the best dressed and decorated pub. In the most competitive contest ever, the title this year was taken by the Junction, with Whitakers in second, the Black Bull in third and the Stew and Oyster and Black Horse as highly commended – but it was great to see so many of the pubs looking great. Thanks to our judges too!
