Our branch Pub of the Season for Autumn was presented to the George Hotel in Hayfield on Saturday 20th November. The comfortable and welcoming pub is in the centre of Hayfield village. On cold days there is a real fire in a magnificent old fashioned range to sit by and warm your cockles. A good variety of hand pulled beers from the Marston’s stable is available and walkers are welcome. All in all it’s a pub well deserving of the award and well worth a visit.

A small group of branch members braved the atrocious weather to attend the branch Club of the Year presentation at the Buxworth (or Bugsworth ) Social Club on Saturday the 21st of August
A couple of excellent beers were available on the day. Pictured is the club bar manager who was delighted to receive the award. The club allows non-members entrance and it is well worth the walk from either Whaley Bridge or Chinley. (ideally, on a nice day !)
The Buffet Bar at Stalybridge Station was the venue for a rare branch occasion when we presented the bar with a double award. One of these was a first for the branch as we presented the Buffet Bar with a certificate celebrating thirty years presence in the GBG.Not many pubs in the Uk can claim that !
Addtionally, we also presented the bar with our Cider Pub of the Year 2021 award.

On 2nd October we were finally able to present this award “properly” to Traders in Marple. Our pub of the season awards recognise not just good real ale, but pubs that have done that bit extra. In addition to three cask ales on handpump. Traders also has a selection of interesting Key-Keg real ales, keg beers and ciders.
