Gorgeous little old-school pub, tucked round the back only a stones throw from West Street. A nicely traditional dark wood interior, with a good selection of ales and ciders in tip-top condition (Cask Marque accredited). Definitely worth a visit (but the dodgy step is still there!).

The pub's location is close to West Street but the atmosphere is a world away from the notorious bars along that thoroughfare.This is a charming,open plan real ale venue retaining some original features.I liked the etched glass windows,and the pleasing exterior.There are 9 handpumps and I noted Old Rosie Cider,Moorhouses Pride of Pendle,TT Landlord,Roosters Yankee (on good form),Box Steam Funnel Blower and Adnams Broadside on my visit.The large collection of pump clips shows that there must be a decent rotation policy here.
Worth including on a crawl of the area,the somewhat irregular steps on exit may give you trouble if you are well oiled !

This is a traditional back street pub in the heart of the University area, but pleasantly hidden away in a side street off the main West Street student drinking “run”.

It’s a former Tetley’s pub and etched windows demonstrate that, before that, it was a Gilmour Windsor Ales pub.

On my recent visit, somewhat discouragingly, a sandwich board outside was advertising a “Swap Shop” exhorting one to bring your unwanted womens clothes, shoes, accessories etc and swap them for something different. Tickets for this events were going for £ 10, or £ 6 if you brought a donation with bubbly and nibbles on arrival.

There’s more room inside than the small frontage would suggest and a split level interior extends back quite a way, ending in a small patio outside at the back. The internal layout would suggest it was once multi roomed. It’s a comfortable, carpeted interior with little of specific note. It seems to have had a bit of a spruce up ( and change of ownership ?) since my previous visit in 2009 and, on my recent early lunchtime visit, the lack of custom and atmosphere created something of a hotel bar feel.

Having said that, there are clearly times when the pub is busier. For instance, we see advertised Square Hole Comedy Nights on every second Monday and acoustic sessions every first Thursday.

The pub is clearly now offering a much more adventurous beer range than when last visited by me in 2009 and there is now a growing pump clip collection on the walls by the bar.

On my recent visit, beers on were Copper Dragon’s Golden Pippin, T T Landlord, Toolmakers Yankee Driver, Raw Jester IPA, Kelham Island Easy Rider, Moorhouses Pride of Pendle and North Star Endeavour ( ie – including several local micros that wouldn’t have been on the bar a few years ago ) . The pub is listed in the 2014 CAMRA Good Beer Guide and beer quality was fine on my visit.

Worth a look in if in the area, which wasn’t the case previously
