COURIER readers have voted The Railway Pub their top HX1 pub of the year.

Pubs across the town centre were heat one of the Courier’s Love Your Local: Pub of the Year 2012 competition - and the Railway Pub on Horton Street scooped the most votes to win the round.

Horizen Salik, of the pub, said: “It’s fantastic news - it’s brilliant.

“There are some good bars in Halifax but it’s nice to know that our customers have voted us their number one pub in HX1.

“It’s a great venue here. Everything has been fully refurbished recently.

“We have a very nice clientele. It’s the place to be.”

Nominations open tomorrow for heat three - covering the HX3 postcode.

Fill in the nomination form and submit them, from tomorrow, to the Courier.

Nominations for HX3 close on April 3 and pubs nominated will feature in the Courier on April 11.

Readers can then use voting vouchers to place their votes at the bar of their chosen pubs, or at the Halifax Courier, no later than 10pm on Thursday April 26.

The winner of each heat will go through to the Grand Final, announced on May 4.
