Quinno _ left this review about Meandering Bear

Not massively enticing from the outside but well-worth going in. Modern place but decorated really well; wood panels on the walls, tiled floor, green formica-topped tables some comfy chairs and sofas and a general 70’s vogue feel to the place with a laid-back atmosphere. Two levels, with a couple of steps up to the bar. Five ales across a range of styles; my Parkway Norweigan Blue was good (NBSS 3.5) whilst there are six craftykeg and a cider to also entice. Staff knew their product, really helpful to clueless punters. Oddly quiet for a Friday night, though that actually enhanced the atmosphere as it felt like a bit of refuge. I enjoyed my stop here and I’d make sure to pop in again next time. GBG'22 listed.

Newish small bar with a split level layout, front lower is seating at a "you name it we got it" selection. Up at the back is the counter, a sofa and a table with a bit of upright drinking space. Five pulls of small brewers beers plus six much less well known brewers beers on keg and a nice ceramic fount of Ayinger lager. There’s a blackboard to the left of the counter showing your choice and full marks they make a sterling effort to keep it up to date. Wines and spirits available and it's rather more family friendly on a Saturday earlier evening than an old git would prefer. Stick this one on your Halifax to do list too. I won’t wholeheartedly endorse the next door chippy.

Definitely not a micropub, but more of a small bar. There was background music playing and they do charcuterie and cheese boards as well. It's on two levels with the bar up a few steps at the rear. The downstairs area has a comfy sofa and chair and some covered settles to the right. There are also some standard dining tables and chairs. Wood panelled walls with a few pictures and a large chalkboard showing what's on the bar. 5 handpumps with one reserved for real cider. My Blackjack Beta Best was a reasonable £3.40. A few in on Friday afternoon and a pleasant buzz about the place. I'll be calling back here next time I'm in Halifax.
