Standard pub with 3 distinct areas. Very average and pub like, tucked out of the way near the station

Unspoilt,no frills, traditional local situated between the railway station and the canal, with friendly locals and a landlord from the 'Old School'.This down to earth pub has an adequate selection of cask beers,and on my Tuesday afternoon visit found the Flying Scotsman to be top drawer.Not the easiest place to find but is worth seeking out,as Old Boots points out in his detailed review it is well indicated from the main road.

Absolutely spot on, good beer, ace landlord and a minor kitchen fire all in one visit. No rat dogs either.
Opened up on request at 9am and offered breakfast. Will definitely visit again.

Terrible service, served 2 pints of vinigar, ignorant staff refused to replace with other beer, finally after asking for the manager, we were given our money back and told to get out immediately..!! all 9 of us left. Never have I been refused to change an off beer before, I suggest you do not visit this pub on the ale trail, they don't want visitors from the trail, as they are fed up with drinkers sending back their off beer. Other beer served was good.

Very disappointed, turned away, just because we had a Small Dog! Only 2 customers were in the Pub at the time! Staff stood at Bar with arms folded, and very abrupt as we walked through the door! Don't think they wanted our custom!

Been there many times before, and enjoyed the place, shame that little dogs are Barred! Better behaved than some people! Other than that, would like to return, when Dogs are allowed!

Another stop on the Trans-Pennine Rail Ale crawl. Exit Mirfield station onto Station Road, turn left and walk under the railway bridge. Pub is on your left, 2 minutes from the platform.
Theakston’s pub, decor is a little bit tired but the service was fine and clientele were friendly enough. The combined effect of a lack of natural daylight inside and 6 hours on the crawl by this point was enough to steal my mojo. GBG 2010 entry.

Old Boots left this review about Navigation Tavern

A white washed stone building probably contemporary with the nearby canal, the Calder and Hebble Navigation. A Theakstons badged pub with the full range of their ales plus John Smiths Cask and five guests from Okells, Roosters and Saltaire on sale. There is a small range of keg beers and cider from Guinness, Strongbow, Amstel and the smooth version of John Smiths. The pub is tucked away behind the entrance to a builders yard next to the station but is clearly signed from the main road. The main bar is traditionally furnished with bench seating, wheel back chairs and cast iron pedestal tables, a victorian architrave remains and there is a slightly nautical flavour with boat lights, ships clock and dangling oil style lights. Other décor comprises mirrors and in tribute to the canal builders, the silhouettes of two navvys on an internal window. Beyond the bar is a pool room with a big screen and at the rear is a lounge bar cum function room. The customers were a friendly bunch, mainly older men enjoying a lunchtime drink.
