Modern upmarket restaurant and bar, GBG’22 listed. A number of knock-throughs to create a wide room with little depth resulting in a fairly cacophonous interior, decorated in a light and relatively tasteful daytime TV show style. A legion of be-penguined staff were on duty with the exception of an eccentric beardie behind the bar who might well have just walked in off the street, I guess he was the ale guy and was a friendly chap. Seven cask from regionals and the local Vocation plus a cider adorned the copper-topped bar. My Kirkstall was fair (NBSS 3) but I think I picked one the locals were swerving, most of the others were turning over. Not really my bag as a place to drink but the commitment to cask means it's worth dropping in for a swift one.

A good looking building with a large front patio with chunky garden furniture this pub is close to the bridge over the river Calder and no doubts cops it during the frequent floods.It is well used by a wide cross section of the local populace and by tourists and it caters to many tastes.The first floor is a restaurant not visited by myself.
On the left of the ground floor is a low ceiling seating area while to the right and down a step is a large drinking area.Opposite the long bar are refectorary style tables while further on comfy chairs and more upright furniture with views of the sports flatscreen.The flooring is granite,the wall coverings cool kazhbar and the large windows give lots of light and a modern bar vibe.
6 real ales are carried ,sadly with little above 4.5% on my trip but my Saltaire Cascade was fine NBSS 3.They always carry a dark ale and my Red Willow Breakfast Stout was great NBSS 4.A rotating ale line up may yield even better results next time and it's worth including on any ale tour of town especially as it's hours are long and late compared with some quirky short hours elsewhere.

Standing room only on Saturday evening, very busy both inside and out, and very loud as a result. Ten hand pulls at the bar, with one off, one cider, two beers by Squawk, others by Hawkshead, Marble, Vocation and Moorhouse's, and Thornbridge Jaipur completing the line-up.

Despite bordering on being uncomfortably busy, we were only staying for a swift one so didn't really matter to us that much. My Aix porter by Squawk was good. It's a place I would be happy to return to.
