I'd been looking forward to a visit here for some time. Situated in station buildings alongside the platform of Dewsbury station, it has a nice interior similar to a waiting room. Maybe it was a waiting room in a previous life. There is also a covered outdoor area, where pizzas and other food was advertised.

Having seen that they served food until 7pm on a Sunday, we saved this almost to the end of our West Yorkshire crawl. However, we were to end up very disappointed. The friendly barmaid could only offer us a very limited menu. Whether all of the food had run out over the weekend or whether the menu is always limited on a Sunday, I'm not sure. It appeared that we could have got a roast earlier in the day, but this was no longer available after 5pm.

We fared slightly better on the real ale front, with 6 ales available. Timothy Taylor Landlord is the regular ale. 5 guests were also on - Shiny MOA, Magic Rock Ringmaster, Saltaire Best, Wild Beer Bibble & Wishbone Wibble. But again I was a little disappointed that there were no dark beers and there was no real cider either. I opted for the MOA. No CAMRA discount was offered.

On balance, this was one of the better pubs I visited on the day, but it fell significantly below what I had been expecting. Hopefully this was just an off-day or perhaps due to this strange Covid world that we are currently living through. One day I will return and hope to find something better.

This is larger than you might expect, with at least three distinct rooms (in front, and to the left and right of the bar) even though it is kind of opened up.

At the bar are ten hand pulls for real ale, with a few taps dispensing craft keg beers. I had a couple of halves of real ale, Equator and Milky Joe, both by Ridgeside, both 5.6%, though one was £1.65 for a half and the other was £1.80. Some of the customers were a bit odd and holding up the queue at the bar, the staff seemed a little dazed and confused but given the extreme heat of yesterday this was understandable.

It's a nice old traditional feeling interior. In terms of outdoor space there is a beer garden with hanging baskets etc, in addition to a few tables out of the front of the pub.

Access is available from the road side or track side. Worth a look.

This is situated on the platform for trains coming from Leeds. I only had time for a very brief visit here as my train was due.
Inside it's a fairly basic dark old fashioned looking place with a wooden floor and split into different areas. I counted ten hand pumps on the bar which included a cider, two Sonnet 43 beers, Landlord, Black Sheep Bitter, Ilkley Ruby Jane, Brass Castle Bad Kitty and RAT White Rat.
I went for the White Rat (£2.80) which was excellent. This one is definitely worth delaying a journey for.
