Probably Best Pub In Dewsbury

Decent food and beer, always busy and prices are very reasonable. Large outdoor area as well make this probably the best pub in Dewsbury.

I went at lunch time on the 2.9.15. with a couple of friends. Two of us had the sharing pizza for £5.99, there would have been enough for 3. The other person had a sandwich which I think was £3.99, we also had a side order of chips. The pizza was thin and crispy with a delicious plentiful topping and... More

This is right on the platform at Dewsbury station and is part of the Transpennine Real Ale Trail. Looked very 'spit and sawdust' from the outside, but is a really old fashioned, traditional pub. Brilliant atmosphere and memorabilia all around the walls and bar. We didn't eat food here, but it did look amazing when it came out. Beer was... More

Just moved to Dewsbury from Wakefield so exploring new places to eat and drink. Stumbled across this place by accident while looking for some place to eat. We went in and took a seat. The place smelt great with food wafting through the building. My partner decided he was having the chorizo burger but I couldn’t decide on anything. The... More

This was the first stop on a recent real ail trail for some old mates in search of beer, banter and um, well more beer. There is nothing not to like here, the beer is excellent with a good selection and all kept excellently. Landlord was the highlight with a sonorous colour and a strong crisp hoppy twang. We decided... More

Beer's great and not particularly expensive, it's lively and staff are great. We went on an organised do and they charged us £8 each for a (Greggs?) pasty and some very undercooked chips/wedges. Oh, and gravy. What a rip-off.

Really great atmosphere and a mixed bag of people. Great bands on a Saturday night. The things that let it down is the fact that it takes so long to get served I know it's busy but it can end up being a joke. A fantastic real ale pub but the lager really does fall flat which is a shame.

Great place to stop off and enjoy a great drink and or a good meal. Great choice of beers and lagers and a good all round menu. Only down side is sometimes it is extremely busy and you may wait a while to get served, good things come to those who wait. Highly Recommended
