THE Rolls-Royce Leisure club in Barnoldswick has won two awards for the quality of its beer.

It was awarded Cask Marque accreditation for serving the perfect pint of cask-conditioned ale, and Carlsberg UK’s coveted Gold Award which rewards licensees for high-product standards.

Anthony Burniston, known locally as Burni, has run the social club in Skipton Road for the last three years.

He said: “We do take great pride in the quality of our beer. It’s nice to be recognised for the hard work we put into maintaining our cellar and giving our customers an excellent product.

“To me, there is nothing more gratifying than hearing a customer comment, ‘That’s a good pint.”
