Licensee Trevor Wraith said they were delighted with the award
A Sheffield pub has been named the Campaign for Real Ale's national pub of the year for the second year running.
The Kelham Island Tavern, which was described by 2009 judges as a "small gem", was praised for its quality of beer and attention to detail.
The pub, which was badly hit by floods in 2007, also picked up the prestigious title in 2008, making it the first pub to win the award in consecutive years.
Licensee Trevor Wraith said the accolade was a "great achievement".
'Truly great achievement'
Judges use a number of criteria to assess pubs, including the quality of the beer, atmosphere, customer service and the overall value on a number of criteria
Mr Wraith bought the semi-derelict pub in 2001.
It reopened in 2002, but the the floods in June 2007 wrecked the floor and cellar, forcing it to close for six weeks.
Camra pubs director Julian Hough said: "The pub's success is thoroughly deserved due to its high attention to detail, service to the surrounding community and quality in all areas, not least in the beer."
Mr Wraith said: "It's truly a great achievement and something we never dreamt of when we first opened.
"Winning last year only made us work harder to meet and beat people's expectations, with people travelling from all over the UK to visit us."
