Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Fox & Goose

Very traditional pub at the western edge of the town; just far enough away from the busy tourist zone, and now community run. Comprises three rooms (none large): the central bar, a comfortable lounge to the left and another (plainer) seating area up three steps to the right. Looks like there is an elevated beer garden on the slopes behind, but not sure how you reach that? In addition to the regular Pictish Brewers Gold, the rotating guest beers came from Sunbeam, Mobberley, Salamander, Harrogate and Bowland, and I was recommended the latter's Hen Harrier (£3.80) which proved to be a fine choice. Overall, with a friendly welcome, well worth seeking out.

On a junction and doesn't immediately look old but there's certainly an aged rustic feel within. Enter to the main bar with a bit of seating, a small shabby room off right containing a dart board and a much more pleasant room off left with padded pew perimeter seating and an arch ceiling. Daub plaster walls, flagstone floor and dark wood trim is the general décor get-up. Go up some narrow rickety stairs to find a lovely walled beer garden with elevated views (sadly obscured by a banner pinned to the railings). Six cask on the go, Mill Valley XTRA Fudge was excellent (NBSS 4) as was the Sunbeam Rain (4) plus, IIRC, a couple of ciders. No surprise to see that it won the local CAMRA Pub of the Year. Easily the best ‘proper’ pub in Hebden – the fact it’s a few extra minutes’ walk from the main bit of town probably helps as it keeps the tourists and numpties away. It does have a splash of Guradianista Hebden though, I spotted candles made of soy (??) on sale for a fiver. A fool and their money…

My first visit since my review of February 2015, and it was a surprise to find a rearrangement of the interior, with a much larger bar counter now installed along the back wall, still with six real ales and a real cider. But whereas the previous counter was small with barely room for an additional server behind it, the new one now provides plenty of room in front for regular customers to occupy stools or lean their elbows or feet on the appropriate brass rails that have been added. This is great for encouraging locals, but not so good for passing beer tourists, who now struggle to see the pump clips. However, making the best of the new situation, I took the opportunity to engage with the locals, prompting (as I hoped) wry smiles or chuckles at my compulsion to take photos of the pump clips. Otherwise nothing has really changed, with a good range of beer styles from a variety of breweries. The solitary half that I allowed myself, with a climb up the other side of the valley still to be accomplished, was in excellent condition.
