This favourite pub competition could be a bitter contest

The opportunity to vote for the best pub in Yorkshire has been extended until 1 June.

Official tourism agency Welcome to Yorkshire runs the annual contest which attracts thousands of votes.

A top ten will be announced on Twitter on 2 June when the public has the opportunity to say choose their favourite which will be announced on 12 July at the Great Yorkshire Show

Last year saw The Fleece Inn at Barkisland crowned the winner, with The Bull Inn at West Tanfield coming in second place and the The Royal Oak at Ripon coming in as Yorkshire’s third favourite pub.

Welcome to Yorkshire chief executive Sir Gary Verity said: “Yorkshire is not only famous for its stunning landscapes and rich heritage, the county is also renowned for its wealth of welcoming pubs which are just as important in attracting visitors. From traditional inns to city centre pubs, make sure you cast your vote for your favourite!”

The competition was first launched in 2011 to help promote Yorkshire’s variety of pubs and the top 30 nominees will once again feature in Welcome to Yorkshire’s Ale Trail leaflet.

 Votes can be cast at www.yorkshire.com/pub
