Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Dirty Dick's Ale House
Impressive 'Brewer's Tudor' façade. Once inside, you find plenty of dark wood panelling and leather bench seats in main bar. There is also a smaller side room with a few pew-type bench seats. Very popular early on a Friday evening. Nine real ales and two ciders on handpump - excellent choice but opted for Stancill Barnsley Bitter at £2.30. Well worth a visit.

A very impressive range of 13 hand pumps is what catches the eye on entering this fascinating building. The exterior is quite an eyeful as well, in its local variant of Brewers Tudor. The original interior layout of rooms can be speculated upon with a degree of accuracy, though the long bar with 10 of those hand pumps now faces one large room. Two of those pumps serve cider, and there's a further beer available from a barrel chocked on the end of the bar. Visual interest is provided by model ships standing on the window sills and by the landlord's impressively sculpted beard. Aurally I found it more challenging, with loud music playing at the time of my Saturday lunchtime visit.

Called in for a couple on Saturday after the beer festival. The beer here was much better kept than at the festival. All 8 handpumps on the go and my pints of Saltaire Blonde & Mallinsons Bramling Cross were in excellent condition. A very good ale house.
Good ale house with 3 distinct areas downstairs plus an upstairs area that I didn't visit. There's a small room to the left as you enter which is fairly bare and has some barrels etc to lean on. There's a main bar area which was well frequented by bar leaners when I visited late on a Friday afternoon. There are also two seating areas which were both fairly full. Good selection of beer on the bar with 8 handpumps on the go. Two changing beers from Green Mill are always on plus several other guests. My pint was in very good condition and this is a pub I will certainly visit again next time I'm in Halifax.
