Wanted to visit this heritage pub on a recent day trip to Halifax, arrived about 12.30 to find it was closed. We should have checked in advance as it does not open until 4.00pm some days. Returned late afternoon for a quick drink. The pub...More

Must admit struggled to appreciate the art deco but the 3 pigeons statue on the bar plus the old photos were classics. However this pub is all about the beer and the nostalgic ambience. So many nooks and cranny rooms. Well done Ossett Brewery for...More
