OTLEY residents will be able to order a pint in the Sean Bean - or a glass of wine in the Judi Dench - next year.

The acclaimed actors have emerged as two of the winners of Otley pub Club's Yorkshire Day Celebrities Survey.

The questionnaire asked people to vote for the regional stars, across 11 categories, whose names they would like to see an inn in the town adopt for Yorkshire Day, 2018.

Other winners include former World Champion road cyclist Lizzie Deignan and triathlon stars Alistair and Jonny Brownlee, comedy legend Michael Palin, and Ricky Wilson of Kaiser Chiefs.

Every pub in Otley to be renamed after a Yorkshire celebrity for Yorkshire Day

Every pub in Otley is being renamed after a Yorkshire celebrity in a stunt to mark Yorkshire Day.

But the new names won't take effect until Yorkshire Day 2018 - when the town's 21 pubs will each hope to entice their famous namesakes over for a pint!
 The final 21 names were chosen from an initial longlist of 110 in an online survey and they will be matched to pubs tonight at 7pm at the Black Horse Hotel in what organisers are calling an "FA Cup style draw".

Otley pubs allocated 'celebrity aliases' for next Yorkshire Day
Quote
EACH of Otley's pubs has been allocated a 'celebrity alias' for next Yorkshire Day.
The club will ask each celebrity to visit 'their' pub next August - or send a message or piece of memorabilia instead.

It looks like a nice place with a lovely garden for summer. Just checked out their photos.
This cracked me up:

If it was 10 years ago, I would not even have doubted it -  it will surely come.
And now I donít  know.

With Mark Addy they missed - it fits perfectly with any pub. In vain they are so
