ROB Camra left this review about Rat & Ratchet

One of my favourite pubs during our crawl of Huddersfield. Descriptions and beer lists are eleswhere, but I really liked it. I was pleased to find an Addams Family pinball machine that I promptly had a few games on and a fine jukebox. My pint of Abbeydale Dr Morton’s Mandarin Claw of Death was in very good nick and I could easily have spent quite some time here going through the pumps. Sadly The Star was beckoning, so we had to leave.

First time to visit what has been part of Huddersfield’s real ale scene for many year and regular winner of CAMRA awards. Just beyond the southern section of the ring road it’s an inviting stone building that stands out well against the blandness of the architecture of the new Kirklees College that dwarfs it from behind.
As already reported below internally this no nonsense ale house now one space but with several adjoining different seating areas and the use of different floor types to the main bar area gives the impression of being a series of different connected areas.
As well as a good use of large mirrors to give the impression of larger spaces, every wall surface is covered with music and different beer and brewery memorabilia. Other distractions are kept to a minimum with a pinball machine, a dart board, a wall mounted TV and a top notch rock jukebox.
Twelve of the thirteen handpumps were in operation for our visit and as well as the Rat Brewery Rat attack, King Rat, White Rat, Nosferatu and Rata Nui there was Yorkshire Blonde and Silver King from the Ossett Brewery, Abbeydale Full English Breakfast Stout, Phoenix Monkeytown Mild, Roosters Eighty Eight, Dr Morton’s Mandarin Claw of Death and Bradford Odsal Top.
The couple of Rat brews I tried were in good nick and as one of the posters stated on the wall, you are never more that 6ft from a Rat and that’s certainly very true here.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Rat & Ratchet

Very traditional - albeit partly opened-out, multi-space - pub that really looks the business. However, seems to have a bit of a problem about accommodating a group of visitors (if my first visit is anything to go by), despite not being overcrowded at the time. However, with all but one of the 13 handpumps in use - and five of their own beers (including Rat Attack, £1.38 half) available - the real ale selection is undoubtedly first class. Overall, the only place during a day in Huddersfield where we didn't feel particularly welcome, but I'm sure that I would enjoy it more another time so will no doubt return.
