Adjacent to the HB Clarks brewery and owned by them,this largely open plan pub does appear at first hand to be part of the Westgate Run but there are lots of good reasons to pay a visit.The apex corner entrance has the bar immediately ahead,bench seating under the front left window and then a seperate pool room.To the right side there is an tun and stools for seating and then a seperate alcove sectioned off by wood panelling before a square seating area to the side of a walk way to doors to a seperate room unexplored by me.Above the bar is a classic 70's thatched roof,worth listing in it's own right .It was friday night and the muzak was loud ,but the atmosphere was calm.
The star of the show was the real ale from 5 handpumps with on my visit TT Landlord and Golden Best,Thornbridge Jaipur IPA,4T's Stout and an outstanding Five Towns Algorithm Dodger 8% DIPA.Thats a very strong line up in anyones book,the GBG listing is fully deserved making this a must visit on any tour of Wakey.

Regrettably nothing of any strength during my visit last week. I'm not marking it down as usually there is something worth while drinking and I would advise anyone to give it a try if you are in the area.

Almost looks like a cafe bar from the outside, but once you're inside it has a faux Victorian look. It's unlikely to be real Victoriana as it used to be a curry house. It's pretty well done though with some decent stained glass and some alcoves and partitions. Lots of dark wood around which gives it a traditional ale house feel. Several TVs around the pub and a quiz machine. It's owned by the adjacent Clark's brewery so the 5 handpumps on the bar were manily their beers plus a guest. My choice of Clark's Deuce was in good nick, however I was meeting up with oldboots & aleandhearty here and they both had Old Mill mild which was pretty poor. I'd happily call in again next time I'm in Wakefield.
