Rob Hunter left this review about Peer Hat

Visited on Saturday evening for the first time, and to be honest I found it a bit strange. It feels like a locals' estate pub that has been picked up and dropped in the middle of town. That, crossed with a hippy drop in centre running an illegal rave downstairs. To me it seemed a bit weird, with customers to match.

Beer wise there were four hand pulls, one of which was off, the others offering Marstons 61 Deep, California Golden Ale, Saltaire New World, plus a couple of craft keg options on the fonts alongside some of the more mainstream stuff (eg Guinness).

Live music events operate downstairs, the stairway to which is in the centre of the main bar. At the risk of sounding old this was really loud, to the point that you could feel the beat vibrating through the floor, and when somebody went in or out of the basement music den it was actually deafening upstairs, so I dread to think what it would have felt like down there.

Still, the place was reasonably busy and just because it wasn't quite my cup of tea doesn't mean everyone else will feel the same. I wasn't that taken by my drink of New World, but we had had a couple of stronger flavoured drinks in other pubs beforehand so I think it just struggled to compete against those, and is probably no reflection on the beer itself or the venue's keeping of it.

I don't regret trying this pub, but for me it's not one to plan a return visit to.
