Pontefract is rumoured to have once held the esteemed record of most pubs per square mile of any British town. These days the market town, whose residents might refer to it as ‘Ponte Carlo’, is better known for being one of the few places in the UK where liquorice can be successfully grown. So if you’re a fan of allsorts, you’re in the right place. Why not pick up a stick of the black stuff while you watch some live sport in the pub.
