Quinno _ left this review about Wainhouse Tavern

Two-tier boozer in an unusual and attractive building (Built in 1877 as a home for the industrialist J E Wainhouse), looming and perched high with a view across the valley. Small lower bar and a larger upper with pool and darts. Dull grey décor in the front area and the rear is hardly a revelation either. Six pumps (all labelled by hand!) though very samey style wise. My Mallinsons Wappy Nick was in decent shape (NBSS 3) and served-up by a friendly barmaid. It's fine if you’re a local but I wouldn’t see the need to make the effort to get out here from the town centre a second time, regardless of its GBG listing.

The Wainhouse Tavern is a large grand looking pub that is a good slog walking uphill from Sowerby Bridge.
Once inside there is a very smart and cosy lounge to the front,this is a smallish oblong shaped room,which is carpeted and has very comfy bench seating and small stools,there was a TV to the left showing music videos.
There is a separate bar room to the rear which is up a few steps,this room is large and had a pool tables to the rear.
This pub used to be a Thwaites tied house,but the outside signage now says Free House,there three real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Geeves Topaz which went down very well,the other beers were Thwaites Wainwright and an house beer called Wainhouse Bitter.
This is a very pleasant and comfortable pub,well worth the walk.
