A rather uninviting looking exterior I thought though inside wasn't too bad. A one roomed affair with the bar to your right on entering. The 5 handpumps today consisted of Brighton Bier Smoked Porter, Five Points Hook Island Red, Dark Star Pale Fyne Ales Jarl and Marston's New World. Its all a bit cafe for me and the drink I had was on the turn. However if your young and trendy then happy days for you.

Yet another shop conversion bar, this one seems a bit well worn compared to the others, in fact some of the stools in here seemed downright shabby. The bar has five hand pumps which had a House beer by Happy Valley called Electrik Bright Spark, Thwaite's Wainwright, Blackjack Stout, Rooster's Blind Jack and Ilkley Summer. I went for the Blackjack Stout which was superb and at £3.60 not cheap but more reasonable than the other places round here. I would consider returning to this one.

Fairly small one roomed bar, with an additional patio at the front. There are some basic tables and chairs in the middle of the bar with some booth type seating to the left and a few barstools at the bar. Some clever lighting gives an evening effect even during the brightness of the day. 5 handpumps on the bar serving Thwaites Wainwright, 3 changing guests and a real cider. They have a collaboration going with Happy Valley brewery where the staff here brew beers for the bar with the brewers. I had a pint of their own Livewire which was pretty good and served in very good condition. I visited late on a Friday afternoon when it was quiet, but I believe they have a DJ on later at weekends and are open until 1:30. This pub is quite rightly in the CAMRA GBG2013.
