A first in here the other night into what was the Pontefract Castle but since 1995 has been The Chapel, the name that can be seen to the exterior in garish green neon, looking for all the world like some nightclub somewhere like...Pontefract?
It's a banana-shaped pub which is broadly half pub and half dining area with a grand lantern underneath which there was probably once a billiard table, but today is home to furniture for gastro-style dining serviced by an open kitchen which makes for noise and in summer, excessive heat. The neon green theme continues inside with some slender green columns and a field panelled bar, painted in similarly verdant hues. The floor is modern dark bare boarded and furniture is of the heavy pine variety with delicate café-style chairs.
The staff were friendly and efficient enough, dispensing probably the same ales as earlier today: Portobello Brewing Co's Star and Black Sheep's Bitter, decent and at £2.30 a half which is not bad for the area, especially if you factor in this pub's upmarket aspirations.
This so-called pub may only serve medium strength ales for the less hardened drinker, but otherwise it's ok - nothing more.
Rated 3.5.

Large room with the bar in the middle. Two weak real ales - rest keg. Nothing special.

Part bar, part-restaurant. Unusual quasi-triangular layout which externally doesn't take in the corner part of the building but internally does seem to extend that far. Quite dark inside with a dark green ceiling, exposed brickwork and wood floor. Open kitchen and geezer staff who are too cool to be serving you in a hurry and who also seemed surprised that I paid in cash which probably tells you about the kind of punter they get in here. Two pumps with just an awful Portabello ale on - which I was about to take back before a huge crowd descended so I dumped it and scarpered. Another dire drinking outlet in the locale, really.

Big open plan pub with exposed brickwork and a nice shade of green painted interior .Relaxing.Outside area with seating was busy on a warm night.Two cask beers on Black Sheep and Spitfire Gold so I went for the Spaten lager which was unchallenging but a nice change from all the good real ales I had been drinking.
