A friendly and cosy local in a nice location between the canal and the river just outside Hebden Bridge. The Stubbing Wharf is a double fronted stone building accessed over a little bridge from the main road. It has a good selection of beers and ciders (three regular beers, three interesting guests and four ciders on draught when we were there) and there are hops on the beams of the one big room. We visited on Boxing Day and there was a warm, convivial atmosphere – like walking into a friendly party, despite not knowing anyone there.
