Real Ale Ray left this review about Honest John

The main feature in here was the large timber framed skylight in the main room, which also had a pitched timber border from the top of the wall plate. The mosaic floor at the entrance was also quite opulent, from the time when this was the local Nat West Bank. The walls were bare stone, which had been recently exposed. The bar/counter over on the right hand side was finished in grey painted timber. The front small lounge area was tastefully finished and a local artist was displaying their work. Three handpumps with two in use, serving Robinson's Unicorn and Brakspear Oxford Gold, both of which were in good condition. There was also a choice of five craft beers.

Excellent new venue in Todmorden. I really liked it and Ms CAMRA and our friends all loved it. Top class description by the other Rob below. The small front room has a few chairs and tables and has artwork for sale around the walls. All 3 handpumps were clipped on our Saturday afternoon visit and they do indeed now do a "cheeseboard type thing" :-)) We tried 2 of the 3 beers which were both in very good nick. We visit Tod several times a year, we'll be coming back to this one.

Cannot add much more to Rob Hunters detailed description only that i did like what looked like the original wood flooring in the larger of the two rooms,the mosaic tiled floor and the high ceiling which had a square area in the centre which had windows for extra light. There was an attractive bar with a smart arrangement of bottles ect on the back wall. Quite a few craft beers were to be had and all the 3 cask pumps were funcioning.
