Regular award winners Barry and Carol Smith of the Brown Cow on Cross Leeds Street, off West Lane have won another CAMRA accolade, this time picking up the Keighley & Craven District Spring 'Pub of the Season'.
This latest win is the fourth CAMRA "Pub of the Season" award for the popular community pub which has also previously won the local CAMRA 'Pub of the Year' and been runner up in Yorkshire's 'Regional Pub of the Year'.
In presenting them with their most recent plaque local club member Paul Morris paid tribute to the couple. "In picking the winner of this award our members look for excellent beer quality, customer service, customer mix and value for money. Barry and Carol deliver all these and more. The Brown Cow is a great pub with a really friendly atmosphere where consistency is king!"
The Brown Cow always has four Timothy Taylor award-winning ales on the bar together with two guest beers from local independent breweries and a good selection of German and Belgian bottled beers.
An overjoyed Carol said: "We are always honoured to receive an accolade from CAMRA. Ever since taking over 9 years ago our aim has been to run a friendly pub and serve quality beers - it's something we enjoy doing. The recognition is a bonus!"
