This pub was the main meet up point for our recent PuG crawl of Huddersfield, although a hardy few had already been in the Cherry Tree first. I didn't really take to this pub at all. Yes, it's got a great range of ales, but it just feels unfinished and not very comfortable. Even with two large groups in it felt empty. I'd call in again to see what beers were on but it would then be JAQPTIO. :-))

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Kings Head (Station Tavern)

Very different from the Head of Steam at the other end of the grand station building, this is a basic pub with an emphasis on just one thing - beer. Not been in for over nine years, with no direct access from the platform anymore, and the main room has now been fully opened out into one large space that felt very 'unfilled' by the plain wooden furniture (or, indeed, other customers) when I arrived. However, this open arrangement now allows you to see the interesting tile-work and other original features to full effect. With snow coming down outside, the two log fires were very welcome as I was waiting for others to arrive. Great range of real ales from a total of ten handpumps: a pair from both Timothy Taylor and Naylor's (including NYB, £2.70), and one each from Bradfield, Magic Rock, Pictish, Saltaire, Empire and Vocation. Also had the Abbeydale Hop Smash on the keg taps.

Of the two Craft and Cask pubs resident in the former waiting rooms of the fabulous Grade I listed Huddersfield Railway station, this one in the East Wing is still probably second behind the Head of Steam when it comes to pub character. But it certainly isn’t in terms of beer choice and quality and on an absolutely foul Friday lunchtime with horizontal sleet cutting you in half as you approached across St George Square it was a wonderful refuge for the first pint of the day.
The single bar set up with its high ceiling and limited pub memorabilia doesn’t have the character of the Head of Steam, but with the open fires roaring away and all 10 hand pumps in operation it was a very pleasant place to be.
As well as the regular beers of Bradfield Farmers Blonde, Magic Rock Ringmaster and Timothy Taylor Landlord and Golden Best, Pictish Opal, Saltaire Elderflower Blonde, Naylors NYB and Velvet, Empire Forbidden and Vocation Divide and Conquer were being dispensed on the other six.
It would have been rude to not try the North Yorkshire Bitter, but the Naylors Velvet Mild was on great form as well. For us also it would have been very tempting to just stay here and go through the pumps, if we hadn’t had another nine venues on the list to visit whilst in town.
