The Yarborough Hotel, Grimsby

A year of firsts for The Yarborough Hotel

The Yarborough Hotel (Grimsby) has been named as ‘best pub’ by local Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) branch members.

Not only did pub manager Dani Love’s pub achieve first place in the ‘town pub of the year’ 2023 category, voted for by Grimsby & North East Lincolnshire CAMRA, but it also achieved ‘overall winner’ in the ‘pub of the year’ 2023 competition.

Dani said: “We are thrilled to have won first place in the CAMRA award for ‘best town pub’, as well as achieving ‘best overall pub’ in our area.

“As far as I’m aware, first place has never been awarded at this pub, so this is a very exciting time for us.

“We are honoured to accept this award ahead of a lot of real-ale competition in our area.”

Ale champion Michael, who has worked at the pub for the past seven years, said: “We are delighted with the awards, presented in recognition of the range and quality of our real ales.

“It is a big deal and a good sign that we are going in the right direction.” Michael, who is also a CAMRA member, added: “We have a good relationship with our local CAMRA members, hosting meetings here every three months.”

The Yarborough Hotel serves up to a dozen ever-changing guest beers, including the hugely popular Triple XB (XXXB) from Batemans Brewery, as well as real ales from Rooster’s Brewing Co, Oakham Ales and Rudgate Brewery.
