I thought this place was a bit bland in all honesty. Not a bad pub by any means. From a distance it looks like it will be like a 'basic boozer' type interior. The interior is actually quite bland but reasonably modern feeling. It consisted of a book shelf, a small statue of an angel (on the book shelf), a mirror and a sign about a Chateaux in Bordeaux . The bar itself is the shape of a hook/ a question mark with seating by the bar. On the bar itself there was a lot of ales- Angel ale (house beer), Saltaire Blonde, Acorn Yorkshire Pride, Hawshead Brodie's prime, Liverpool Organic Shipwreck IPA, Liverpool Org Russian Imperial Stout, Saltaire Raspberry Blonde, Super Fortress by Howard Town, Saltaire Decennium Pale. Two pumps had the clips turned around. There were also two ciders- Farmer Jims Rhubarb Cider Andy Vimto Cider, the latter would set you back a fiver for a pint. I went for the Yorkshire Pride at 3.40 an okay beer that was kept at an okay standard, not amazing but not poor either. Bar maid and the woman I presume is the land lady or manager seemed okay as well, although the bar maid had her back turned the whole time I was in, not the most professional way to act. Food menus set out on the tables and the upstairs indicating that it was reserved for diners. Not a bad place necessarily but I don't think I would bother coming back to be honest.

Great pub, great beers. The beer garden is a bit grim outside with bins, concrete and a view of a busy junction. We went on a rainy day and it was great. Though we still sat outside as my mate wanted to smoke!

Paid another visit recently and stand by my previous review. Good selection of ales, differing in style and strength, so something for everyone. 11 pumps of which 10 were available, plus an extra 2 for cider.

D├ęcor and general building maintenance is starting to look like it needs some attention - looks like there has been a leak or some flooding especially near the patio doors (piano area). If it gets much worse, the ceiling will be in worse nick than the Crown & Kettle. Gents toilets have also been moved to a porta cabin outside, and has been that way since my last visit which would have been around Easter time. Would be a shame if the building fell into a state of disrepair - it is otherwise an excellent boozer offering a decent selection of real ales.

Great no-nonsense pub with an excellent choice of beers including an imperial stout.

Been a few times since my last review so thought it was time for an update.

There are 11 hand pumps at the bar, with 10 available on my latest visit. Plenty of selection and if memory serves me correctly there may have been some ciders too.

Getting a seat can sometimes be a struggle as it is always busy in this pub - at least this is my experience at weekends. There is a piano in the corner and more often than not somebody is making use of it.

A great pub, great ale choice in good condition - always worth a visit.
