I've been in here quite a few times but somehow it has never quite floated my boat - something to do with a preponderance of very pale, hop-forward beers no doubt. With Luton Town's game at Huddersfield moved to a Monday evening and our train back to Sheffield at 22:50 we decided to target this one for a post-match beer, though slightly concerned by the 10pm closing time. We needn't have worried, as the walking distance from the stadium nothing like what Google Maps would have us believe, and there was obviously never any chance of the pub closing so early on a match day. Several tables had not only reserved signs on when we turned up at 21:55, but also full rounds of drinks already poured and waiting to be claimed. Not having considered this as an option, we went up to the bar and contemplated the pump clips belonging to a plethora of pale, hop-forward beers: we went for the Timothy Taylor Boltmaker, which was in superb condition. We drank up quickly and left, not wishing to spend another half hour surrounded by Terriers fans celebrating their win while cursing the referee in the same breath. I'll no doubt be back.

Fabulous boozer, visited as part of a crawl in Huddersfield a couple of weekends ago. 10 hand pulls at the bar (two of which were ciders), 8 keg taps and just felt like a proper decent pub with a good beer selection. It definitely was not as busy as it should have been.

This is a great looking pub, both inside and outside. A curved bar, lots of wood, good looking furniture, two small snugs at either end of the bar and 10 handpumps, what's not to like? Lots of interesting pictures and drawings on the wall including Huddersfield Town memorabilia. There was quiet background music playing during our visit, mainly Tamla & Northern Soul. My pint of True North Blonde was in very good nick. I'll definitely be calling in here again.
