Cheers as pub scoops award

Date published: 02 April 2014

OLDHAM’s Carrion Crow pub has been named Pub of the Year by the local branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA).

The accolade puts the pub in top spot among over 580 pubs in the Oldham, Rochdale and Bury areas covered by the branch.

CAMRA volunteers judge all the pubs in their area to find their favourite for the year, judging decor, value for money, customer service, general appeal and beer quality.

Branch winners join regional heats in the hope of becoming national pub of the year.

Branch chairman Peter Alexander said: “The Crow is a superb example of a community local. Tony and Julie Robins are great licensees, who cater for all ages and tastes.

“It’s a Mecca for real ale drinkers, supports local events, raises funds for local charities and hosts quiz and football teams.”


. . . and it's haunted by the ghost of a woman who was murdered in the cellar! Well done Tony and Julie, it's nice to hear of a pub doing well against all the odds these days.

A local of mine in the 60s when it was a Tetley's house,a great pint then,glad to see the tradition is continuing.

Great pub. Top beer. Super staff.
