The Richard Oastler pub has been acclaimed for the quality of its real ale – by branch members of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA).

The pub in Bethel Street, Brighouse is listed in CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide 2015.

Local branch members chose the pub following regular visits to check on the quality of the real ales on offer.

They also took into account customer service, décor and overall atmosphere.

A CAMRA spokesman said: “The pub deserves its place in the Good Beer Guide 2015.

“It is our belief that if a licensee serves an excellent pint of real ale, then everything else in the pub, including customer service, quality of food and atmosphere, are likely to be of an equally high standard.”

The Richard Oastler, along with other JD Wetherspoons across the country, took part in Tax Equality Day yesterday (Wednesday) by reducing prices by 7.5 per cent to show the benefits of reducing VAT.

Pub manager Amanda McKenzie was really please.

“I am delighted that the pub has been recognised for the quality of its real ales by CAMRA members,” she said.

“We offer our customers an excellent range of real ales at all times, including those from regional brewers and microbrewers, as well as hosting our own beer festivals.

“Staff at the pub work hard to ensure that the real ales on offer are kept in first-class condition at all times and the pub’s inclusion in the guide highlights this.”
