Profile information

Always admired this site so I thought why not just get a profile. Currently based round Liverpool, making frequent trips to Manchester. I don't think I will be living around Liverpool long so I want to get as many pubs in as I can. Also will be going home to West Yorkshire and will get to some pubs around God's own county if possible. Sometimes I do the occasional away day with Bradford City so I will report on any pubs I frequent on these escapades. I am generally a 'proper pub' type of lad.

The Lord Wilson, Huddersfield

A big room of a spoons with a chandalier. Quite poor on the ale front, had ruddles, doom bar and abbot and Live and Let Rye by Elland, Golden by bradford brewery and Beyond the pale by Elland. Went for live and let rye by Elland, good beer at 2.15 pint and well kept. Quite a comfortable spoons, similar to the Cherry Tree, (cherry tree had a better selection). Not a bad spoons if you fancy a visit.

Ilkley Riverside Hotel, Ilkley

Came in here as I suggested it and I shall be the one to bed it in. Not sure exactly what the riverside markets itself as, as I don't come in enough. It's probably aimed at drinkers but it has rooms and a separate room for dining. It's in a bit of an awkward spot so it may be aimed at diners but it is in the park and decent to have a drink on a nice summers day out front. The bar itself is in an S type shape. And faces the area where the drinkers can sit. Ales on were Saltaire Blonde, Timothy Taylor Landlord, Tetleys Bitter, Ilkley Mary Jane. Went for a pint of Mary Jane at 3.35, in decent condition ( they also use the autovacs). The bar seating area itself is all leather seats, quite comfortable, with a fire at one end of the room. Some decent background music and they do show sports on a projector. Various pictures of old ilkley and the moor. Decent enough place but there's better options in Ilkley.

The Dick Hudsons, Bingley

For what it is this is a good pub. Good as a restbite at the end of a walk from Ilkley or wherever over to this pub. It's a gastropub but it does feel like it has a bit of character to it. It's quite big as well with a few separate areas around the pub. Dogs are allowed in the area which faces the bar. They have a decent selection of keg beers and ales that were on when i was in were quite 'safe', Taylors Golden Best, Taylors Landlord, St Austell Tribute, Black Sheep Best Bitter. I went for a pint of Estrella and also Landlord (at 4.40), Landlord was in good condition. The food is a bit if a let down, 11.95 for the steak and mushroom pie and it looks like it's going to be good value with a big bowl and a big head created by the pastry on top. However, the pastry is able to give the impression that there's a lot of filling inside when there isn't. It wasn't a poor amount of filling but it was disappointing. The impression I've got is this pub is aimed at trying to be a '3 course meal' type place, which destroys the charm to some extent. Would I recommend coming? If you're in the area it's worth a drink and may be a cheaper bite (like one of the sandwiches). But it's not one to seek out in and of itself. I would be tempted to come back if I was doing the ilkley to dick hudsons walk in the summer as it has a large beer garden, but i wouldn't drive over there just to go to this pub.
