A good sized GK pub, standing in a prominent position at the beginning of Horsforth main high street. You step up into the pub from the main front entrance and you can observe a decent display of Victorian tiles on both walls up to dado height. The interior is traditional and the main bar area, can be found on the left hand side. This good sized bar area had a distressed painted dark blue panelled front, with an oak counter top. Original red brick foot rest and a grey tiled floor surround.
The right hand side of the pub was open plan with a half partitioned corner room, featuring a timber fireplace and buttoned back leather bench seating. The rear of the pub housed a dining area serving Thai food. There was also a narrow seating area along the side of wall of the restaurant area, with plenty of light from the side windows. Five handpumps on the bar with four pumps in use, serving Ilkley Alpha Beta, GK Yard Bird, Howard Town Super Fortress and Kirkstall Three Swords. I went for the Three Swords which was top notch.

Very smart looking building from the outside, but once you step inside it needs a bit of a refurb, especially the carpet and the Gents toilets. It's been opened up into one large room, but with a separate area for a pool table. There's a further area at the rear in an extension that is used mainly for dining. As it's a regular in the GBG including 2011 I was a little disappointed to find that my choice of cask ale was Tetleys Bitter or York Yorkshire Terrier, hardly unusual beers for around here. There was another handpump with a clip turned round, another not in use and two more with real ciders. Having said that, my pint was well kept and we got a friendly welcome from both the barmaid and a couple of regulars stood at the bar. We'd probably call in again next time we're in Horsforth, but it's by no means a must visit pub.
