Bridlington’s Three B’s Micropub has been judged as a Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) finalist for Cider Pub of the Year 2023, making it one of the top four pubs serving real cider in the country.

The pub opened in 2020 during the first COVID-19 lockdown, with a period of hard trading following. However, owners Mark and Cheryl Bates, who live in Bridlington, continue to trade and have won a number of awards this year.

First, they won Yorkshire Wolds Cider Pub of the Year and this was followed by winning Yorkshire Cider Pub of the Year.

“We are very proud to have learnt we are in the top four for the national competition, this really is a momentous occasion,” said Mark.

“We get some great customer feedback from our customers both through personal interaction and from online reviews, we are are so pleased we have been recognised by CAMRA with this award.”

Yorkshire Regional Cider Co-ordinator Christine Jane added: “The Three Bs in Bridlington is an outstanding achievement for Mark and Cheryl, having been converted by Mark from a sweet shop in the past.

“It serves a diverse range of beers and ciders but amazingly focuses on, and showcases the best of what is on offer from Yorkshire artisanal makers.

“The Three B’s shows what can be achieved with cider, a drink that many in Yorkshire are unaware has been part of the country’s history for many, many years, with some evidence to suggest that the Normans kickstarted the industry in Yorkshire.

“Many agricultural workers in the past received part of their wages in cider or perry. There is still a Yorkshire abbey that produces award winning ciders as well.

“To achieve the accolade of being one of the top four venues in the UK for cider clearly demonstrates Mark’s passion, belief in his business and his products without overthinking what makes a great venue.

“I urge as many people as possible to visit, though there may be a queue, and see for themselves this gem in the east of the county that deserves to sparkle with the best pubs in the country.”
