The Friendly Inn, Stanbury

Three years ago the Friendly at Stanbury was boarded up and closed ‘pending disposal’. There were fears that it would never open as a pub again. However, it was bought by Brian Witney during 2001 and opened under the management of his daughter Sarah. Since when it has gone from strength to strength to become a thriving village pub. Three real ales are normally available, currently Tetley Bitter, Goose Eye Brontë Bitter and a periodically changing guest, usually a fairly strong beer. A small village, not far from Haworth, Stanbury (and the surrounding area) is popular with walkers and tourists. Hence the pub is frequented by both visitors and locals. This smart, well-kept pub, true to its name, would seem a worthy winner as ‘Pub Of The Season’.
