Awards

Oddest BarThe Trafford & Hulme CAMRA Pub Of The Season for Spring 2011 is Oddest on Wilbraham Road, Chorlton.

Oddest is one component of a family of three bars, Oddest which opened in summer 2009, being the first outside Manchester city centre. As part of a group of independently-run bars (Odd & Odder being the others in owner Cleo Farman's portfolio), each with its own identity within an ethos of quality products, good service and recognised drinks, Oddest still stands out.

The Timperley Taverners Club on Park Road, Timperley has retained their title as Club of the Year 2011.  The Club will now go forward in to the Regional competition which will be announced later on this year.

Originally a tennis club in the 1960’s the current building on the site was built in 1981 to replace the wooden hut, by the Liberal Democrats as their Head Quarters for the area.  In 1985 a further extension was added to give a large function room.

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.

CONGRATULATIONS TO
THE KNOTT
The Knott

 

The Knott goes one better!  Having named The Knott our Pub of the Year for the last two years meaning that the popular Deansgate bar was entered into the Greater Manchester CAMRA Pub of the Year contest where it went head to head with the entries from the other seven CAMRA branches in the region. Last year it lost out to the Crown in Worthington (which went on to make the final four in the national competition.). This year the Knott emerged victorious and has been crowned regional champ.
