The Railway Hotel is the first area winner in our Love Your Local Pub of the Year contest for 2013.
Last year’s town centre HX1 winner has been voted the best in its postal area heat again this year by Courier readers.
Licensee Ugur Salik said: “We’re very, very pleased to get through. We’d be absolutely elated if we won, it’d be great.
“It’s such a unique place with a nice, friendly atmosphere and we cater for people of all ages.
“The Railway is a lovely pub with a good mixture of clientèle,” he added.
The nominations are now in for the HX2 postcode heat, and you can vote for your favourite.
We will be profiling all the pubs that have been nominated on our website www.halifaxcourier.co.uk.
You can use the voting form in the latest edition of your Courier to pick your preferred pub.
Votes can be posted to Love Your Local Nomination, Halifax Courier, Promotions Department, King Cross Street, Halifax, HX1 2SF no later than Wednesday, May 15.
Meanwhile, nominations for the HX3 postcode close on May 8, so if you own or use a pub in this area and you think it deserves to be crowned best in the location, then send in your nomination to us.
The winners of each heat will go through to the Grand Final, with the winner to be revealed in the Halifax Courier once all the heats have been completed.
