Rat & Ratchet - Huddersfield's Pub of the Year

After narrowly losing out to The Star Inn at Folly Hall last spring, the Rat & Ratchet on Chapel Hill has reclaimed top spot as Huddersfield CAMRA's local pub of the year.

I would hate to ever be put in the position of casting the deciding vote between these two legendary houses (though that's not the reason I don't attend meetings), but what a tough call!

So it's congratulations to Sam at the Rat for maintaining quality and improving choice, whilst we look forward with the usual anticipation to the first of three scrummy festivals from Sam at the Star - long may they battle it out!

The Rat and Ratchet has a dedicated following of one in Roanoke, Virginia (US). It's a great spot to kick back for a pint or two with friends, and what really puts it over the top for me is that it's dog-friendly.

Thanks to Chris Stubbs in the Engineering Department at the University of Huddersfield for introducing me to the place!
