Visited yesterday (Tuesday) afternoon. 8 hand pulls with 5 of those being on. Theakston Old Peculiar and four Beartown beers were available. The Beartown beers were 201 Pale, Peterloo 1819, Peterloo, and 201 Best. There were two further pumps with the clips turned round and these looked like they were probably Beartown beers too as the clip style looked the same. Hand sanitiser is available, no contact details requested, you can sit where you like, inside or out. A bit of a shame that all the Beartown beers were bitters and pale ales; my Peterloo 1819 best bitter was OK but nothing to get excited about.

Visited mid week. This pub has a traditional layout with a fairly small narrow front room, with a corridor to the side of the servery with a rather grand looking red and gold ceiling, then taking you behind the servery (where there is a serving hatch) and two separate rooms. The toilets are then further to the back of the building and the entrance to the beer garden.

At the bar I noted eight hand pulls for real ale, all of which were on, offering a range of beers from different breweries. Further down the bar were a further two hand pulls which seemed to be dedicated to real cider, with one of these being off. I remember years ago the beer selection was rather mundane, but not so these days. My Saltaire Stout No.5 was pretty decent and slipped down very nicely indeed.

Decent beer selection, decent traditional interior - what's not to like here?

A multi roomed traditional pub, set on a rather busy road, to be honest at this point on the PuG tour my attention to fine detail was not with me anymore, but deciphering the scrawl that was my notes I had Brightside Odin and they said good next to it ,so that's good enough for me.
