Called in for a pint of Slightly Foxed, they had Roaring Fox on the bar which the landlord claimed was brewed specially for the pub. I thought that this was unlikely given the size of the brew length at Slightly Foxed and said so, but the landlord insisted it was. It turns out that it isn't (surprise, surprise) it's actually a mix of two regular SF beers according to Simon at the brewery. We then made the mistake of eating here and were served with some of Brakes / 3663s finest ping cuisine, including fake mash, it was crap. If you want to eat overpriced, bought in food then this is the place for you. Lot's of better places to eat in the town, so don't bother with this one.

Now reopen after a reputed £400,000 refurbishment. I've no idea where they spent the money as it looks pretty similar to before as far as I can see. Very much specialising in dining now, it was very busy on our Bank Holiday Sunday visit. Somebody has to pay for the refurbishment and it's you. The bar prices are very steep, even for Hebden, this was by far the most expensive round on the day. Having said that my pint of Slightly Foxed Prairie Fox was in good nick and the other half enjoyed her red wine. It's much improved since my last visit, but it will never be my favourite pub, it's too touristy.

I've been to this pub quite a bit in the past but this was my first visit for about 2 years. Sadly I'm not impressed at all now. The pub is generally very foody and as you enter you are hit by the all pervading smell of fried food. I think the oil needs changing guys, it shouldn't smell so bad. Both the main room and the side room off to the left are full of dining tables & chairs, so not very drinker friendly. Six handpumps on the bar with four turned round at 7 p.m. on a Friday, that's bad. I had a very average half of Copper Dragon Golden Pippen and left. It's hard to believe that this is the same pub that was in the GBG for years. Not a hope in hell of getting back in it at the moment.

Great find!

A large number of different real ales in a fantastic setting and a lovely building to boot. Food looked good quality.
