The Good Pub Guide 2010, the bible for pub-goers, has announced the annual winners of its national awards.
Our congratulations go to Hervey and his staff. This is what the guide had to say:
WHISKY PUB OF THE YEAR 2010 - Fisherman's Retreat, Ramsbottom, Lancashire
"Bury in Lancashire - whisky capital of the world? We were surprised this year to find a pub selling over 500 whiskies - not some tavern in Scotland, but tucked away on the edge of Bury. Hervey Magnall owns it now; his father started the collection, for fun, adding a new one each week."
