A large front room with a narrower extension past the bar to the rear. There is a long list of expensive "craft" beers plus four hand pumps: one cider and two real ales were available at the time of my visit. I went for Laine Bestest Bitter, which is brewed about a mile away; the other was Hepworth Pullman. As with many large square rooms of this kind, I found the acoustic rather challenging, even though it was not a very busy night. There were some interesting old maps on the wall, but I'm not sure they would be enough to encourage me back for a second visit.

A large and slightly cavernous opened out pub with a bit of a casual gastro feel about it, plenty of seating through out and to the rear a nice decked courtyard garden.There were four handpumps with a decent selection, I opted for a pleasant pint of darkstar Sunburst.Certainly worth calling in for a beer as it is conveniently placed between The Barley Mow and Hand in Hand two minutes walk either side of here.

As the previous reviewer has said, it's quite dark in here, and from the outside, not that inviting.
However, there is a bit of a "beer terrace / garden" out the back, with loads of tables and seating.
The food is excellent. Fair sized portions, very well cooked, presented well and reasonably priced.
We found the staff to be friendly, helpful and accommodating.
As to the beer, I had a pint of Partridge Best Bitter, from the Dark Star Brewery - Very nice indeed. To my mind, far superior to the Laines, but this is purely my personal opinion.
Certainly no objection to a return visit.
