Miner's Arms Wins Derbyshire North POTY

The Miners Arms at Hundall, winners of the North Derbyshire area Pub Of The Year award 2019.

After a pub or bar has won the branch award of POTY it can then be put forward into the next round of the National CAMRA POTY competition which is the “County” round. Owing to the large amount of branch and sub-branches within Derbyshire area it was decided several years ago to split the county into a north and south divide with each area having a winner which is then entered into the next round along with the other County winners, the East Midlands Regional POTY.

Judging for the NDerbys round is carried out by the representatives of participating branches using the CAMRA approved scoring system which takes into account not only the quality of the beer but the style, welcome, decor and ambience of the establishments.

The 2019 N Derbys POTY winner is the Miners Arms at Hundall who have previous success in this competition in 2016 and 17. Many congratulations to owners Matt Bradshaw and Geoff Fields along with manageress Natalie Edwards and their staff in securing this prestigious award against some very creditable opposition.

All visitors, locals and dogs are welcome alike at this rural gem which nestles high above Dronfield and maintains a good community environment by hosting and supporting many charity events. A limited pub snacks menu is offered but one of the main reasons for the pubs consistent success is the choice, quality and presentation of the real ales always on offer on the five available handpulls.
