Aqualung . left this review about The Hop

This is a conversion of an old factory or warehouse. It's been more than well described below. When I turned up late on a Saturday afternoon it was quite busy and had loud music blasting out. A lot of the clientele seemed to be shouty lager swilling blokes yelling at each other because of the din from the speakers. It was more like being in a night club than in a pub on a Saturday afternoon.
I didn't note all the beers as there were people propping the bar up and I just wanted to have a pint and get out of there. I went for one of several Ossett beers, Ecselsior (£3.40) which was in good nick.
It's not for me this place but at least the beer was OK and reasonably priced which saves it from a poor score. It's GBG 2018 listed.

A large, I'd guess recently converted, Osset boozer which felt slightly too new and slightly too lacking in atmosphere for me despite the live music on in the bar.
There's a lot of space here both inside and out and signs to the kebab shop. Don't be confused. If you follow the signs up the stairs you really will find an open kebab shop.
Beers were: Ossett Silver King, Excelsior and Yorkshire Blonde, Ilkley Summer, Milestone Black Pearl, Acorn Barnsley Bitter, Great Heck Apocolypse Now and Rat White Rat and Number of the Rat. A very decent selection and the White Rat was well kept and slid down easily.
Certainly worth a visit particularly on a sunny day and perhaps it'll age well.

Ossett Brewery offering which now has the room to the right of the bar open and the back room shut. Not sure when this occurred but probably earlier this year. Good selection of ales and a pub I like to visit early evenings before any bands appear.
