The winner of our Autumn Pub of the Season award is the Rising Sun on Queen Street in Manchester City Centre.
The presentation took place on Thursday 21st October. Barrie Sneyd was ready and waiting for the presentation to take place together with David Grant from Moorhouses brewery but where was all of his family. His wife was held up coming home from work, in Dubai and his parents had been despatched to the airport to collect Natalie. They arrived thinking that they had missed the presentation of the first award that Barrie and his team have been presented but for such an important event we waited so that everyone could enjoy the achievement together.
Barrie and his team are very keen on real ale, indeed he has just won his 8 month long battle with Punch Taverns to get a sixth handpump fitted which were sporting the full range of Timothy Taylors beers the last time I visited on yet another Meet the Brewer evening.
