user reviews of the Robin Hood Inn, Pontefract

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

THE pub to visit in Pontefract. The owner (formerly of Fernandes in Wakefield), serves an ever changing range of quality real ales (including some from his own brewery at Filey -East Coast, and his own recently installed brewplant at The Robin Hood itself). A no nonsense basic ale house. Wonderful.

Lots of choice and constantly changing well kept beers and ciders. They will give you a sample if the beer is new to you. Pleasant and helpful staff in a traditional town pub. Good friendly atmosphere.

The "Robin Hood" has returned and is better than ever. Eight (yes Eight) hand pumps and a few Belgos. Wonderful atmosphere, with Darts, Dommies and two quiz nights. The beers are great and reasonably priced. Well worth a visit.

Since it's a new landlord it could probably do with a new start on the ratings. Been again today and the pub has a very friendly feel with families welcome as well as the usual regulars, and a number of new faces. The beers, which are in great numbers are constantly changing, though thankfully there are plenty of Filey brews left. had a pint of Old Empress today, an old favourite which is as good, if not better than before!

The pub is now redecorated, though essentially unchanged, so it's the same Robin Hood we always knew. The old photos are back, and there is a massive range of beer. There's all the usual stuff like Becks and Hoegaarden, if that's what floats your boat, but there is also a wonderful selection of real ales, many from the Filey brewery, I believe made by the new Landlord. Rumopur has it that he wants to set up a micro-brewery round the back. If he makes more beers like the few I've tried then bring it on as soon as possible.

Sadly now closed. One of the few remaing real ale and in fact real pubs left in "Ponty", although a poster on the window promises a re-opening soon. Let's hope that it's character will be preserved, and it's dreadful loos not, when it does.

A nice friendly pub on a main junction to the west of the town centre. Four handpumps, guest ales are on the back bar. Everard's Sunchaser and Copper Dragon Golden Pippin were available on my visit, as well as the ubiquitous Tetley's.

A real ale pub, a good drinking house.
