Aqualung . left this review about Harry's Bar

I turned up at this famous place on a Saturday afternoon. The single room described below was very busy so I sat on one of the benches outside in a relatively cold wind which was perfect after endless days of heat.
The nine hand pumps had two unused, Tigertops Peti Novice, Kelham Island Best, a house beer, Five Towns Fascination (a collaboration) & Owt L Do, Great Newsome Holderness Dark and North Riding Cascade Pale. I went for the Peti Novice (£2.85) and the Fascination (£3.25) both of which were in good nick. I thought this was a good place but it's a shame it doesn't open before 16:00 on a Saturday. It's GBG 2018 listed.

The final stop of an excellent evening in Wakefield so details are a touch hazy.
The place is comfortable, the customers convivial on our Saturday evening visit and the bar staff fun and friendly including a charmingly cheeky barmaid.
If that weren't enough there was a wide selection of largely local ales available all in superb condition and everything that we tried flew.
My Five Towns Moss Garden was superb and I noted beers from North Riding and Tigertops both noted Yorkshire breweries with Tigertops, like Five Towns, representing Wakefield itself.
Fantastic.

ORIGINAL REVIEW July 2014
This is a bar for grown ups,with a very good selection of real ale and a calm atmosphere in an area where many other establishments need to use doormen on a weekend night.It's essentially an open plan lounge with some exposed brick around a real fireplace.There are some seating booths, traditional furniture and the clientele included a number of beautiful (middle aged) people in designer gear,the crew excepted of course.Everybody was in good spirits on a busy Saturday night.
The real ale selection on our trip included Acorn Sticklebracht,Five Towns Monster Mash and HB,Moorhouse Pride of Pendle,Bob's Brewery White Lion,Roosters Stars and Stripes,Rudgate Battle Axe and Two Roses T'Yellow Jersey together with a pump for real cider.A very decent selection.Beer quality was very high,the GBG entry is justified and this is another establishment you must include on any tour around town.

UPDATE
I feel compelled to upgrade to the full 10 ,after another excellent visit.It was an oasis of calm on a busy Saturday night,the cheeky barmaid enlivened the atmosphere and the interior is authentic and pleasing.The ale selection and quality was outstanding and my Five Town Moss Garden and North Riding US Session IPA were pints of the night of a good sized crawl around towm.Unmissable.
