Visited on a Saturday afternoon in July 2015. Nice pub with lots of place to sit and relax with a good beer. A good selection with 5 Rat beers including 2 keg, 3 Ossett and some guests made choices tough. All the beer was well looked after, served with a smile and was good. It used to be my local 20 years ago, it has changed a little but only for the best. A great pub and well worth the walk through town to get to it.

Excellent cozy pub with the Rat beers and Ossett available on cask. Guest taps feature as well. Very friendly bunch of folks here, both sides of the bar. Well worth a visit.

This brewpub is about a fifteen minutesí walk from the railway station, straight through the city center, over the ring road, and then the pub can be seen towards the top of the hill. Charming and relatively large British pub with different rooms. 12 hand pumps devoted to their own ales (four Rat beers available at our visit), from the Ossett, and a few other local breweries. Some interesting ones also on keg, including the Rat Against the Machine. Friendly service from a barman who told us about the pub and the Rat brewery in the basement. Has got nice little patio in the back (first stop on a pub crawl in Huddersfield 09.07.2014).

On the other side of the central ring-road at itís most southern point, itís an easy enough jaunt from the main centre. The pub has a considerable space but in defined drinking areas so thereís not dominant area to sup. The decor is predominantly wooden throughout including some cask barrels as tables opposite the bar which is suitably wells stocked with Rat Brewery ales, those from its parent company Ossett and rotating local and Yorkshire guests.

Great traditional pub located just south of Huddersfield town centre. Inviting and cosy old-fashioned pub interior with friendly staff. They had a rather extensive amount of casks on offer with plenty of their own beers (including a couple of new ones) as well as interesting guest beers. Good value to boot. A great pub all-round.

Excellent medium sized boozer, interestingly split into different sections. Beer range is generally local and varied. How can you are with a pub where you find a picture of Frank Zappa on the loo?

Very cosy pub, a bit away from city center. Rather large pub, even though you donīt feel that when sitting in there because of the lay out. Besides there own beers ( Rat Brewing ) they also have a few guest ones. Relax atmosphere, friendly staff and most beers in good condition.. Worth a visit :-)

Visited here with Dad and Barry 17.03.12. This used to be a regular haunt of mine and Lozís back in the late eighties and early nineties, I remember it fondly and was chuffed to bits to return and find that it is still an excellent pub. thirteen beers on tap including three Rat beers and three Ossett or Riverhead beers as I recall. However with Milltown, Steel City, Little Ale Cart and Magic Rock Eight Ball (the latter on Keg Font dispense) also on offer this was a decent and far from shoddy selection. The barmaid was friendly, chatty and seemed to know her stuff, the punters (mostly tickers and beery types) were all good for a chat. Met Nick from Franconia in this place totally by chance. Really good pub, looking forward to a return visit.
