A large pub with an L shaped room, the bar area is central as you enter and had a choice of four ales on pump. The left hand side area of the pub was set up for dining and had that gastro pub ambience about and the menu was high end also. The pub was busy on our early Saturday eve visit, with a mixed age group. A good few local hipsters had managed to show their faces in here, to give the pub a trendy vibe from their presence, compared to others in the locality. I went for the Ilkley Pale, which was a good pint, but the prices in here were steep.

The Black Hat is a decent sized pub that is on a very busy road.
Once inside there is a large single L shaped room with the bar facing,the room is bare boarded,the seating is normal tables and chairs,there is also a small raised area to the front left,dont dare to sit down on the left side like i did if you are not dining,you will soon be asked to move to the right side,this area extends to the rear,the seating here is bench type and normal tables and chairs.
There were four real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Leeds Pale which was a decent drink,the other beers were Saltaire Blonde,Taylor Landlord and Charles Wells Poppy,i wish the service at the bar was as quick as i was asked to leave my seat on the left dining side.
The pub was very busy with younger upmarket types,both drinking and having meals.
This pub is ok for a quick drink,the beer was decent, service slow.
