This is where I drink before every Huddersfield Town home game, wonderful selection of both cask and keg beers, extremely keenly priced, the staff really know there stuff and the people that go in are all extremely friendly, miss at your own peril.
Holy cow. Ten minute walk from the station. Does not look like a pub from the outside - neither the building nor the bright green sign - so I walked pat it and had to ask for directions. Once I found it, I was in heaven. The room on your right is more for men, and you can cuss here. The room on the left was for families. But both sides were mixed. The right side, paradoxically, was quieter. Huge range of beer mostly from farther afield - Sweden, Denmark and Slovenia were all represented. And they do thirds. Friendly knowledgeable staff. Knowledgeable clientele too - thank you, David, for guiding me through the beers on offer with some solid recommendations. A must-visit while anywhere near Huddersfield.
Visited on a Friday night in July 2015. The pub is a gem with a great list of keg and cask beers from the UK and further afield, all are well kept and in decent condition. Tried several from the range and the prices for the cask beer were really good including a pint of 11%+ beer for £3.50! Keg is more expensive. Place is popular but got a table and just enjoyed the beer in the nice surroundings. A must visit when anywhere near Huddersfield.
A superb pub that has never let me down. Atmosphere always welcoming and friendly, admittedly the interior is quite basic and spartan, still very comfortable though. First class selection of beers, drank a fair few from breweries like Thornbridge, Buxton and Fullers to name but three of them. Beer quality excellent and pricing is still very acceptable, never had a bad pint here. If you only go to one pub in Huddersfield, make it the Grove.
Fantastic pub! Arrived at opening and enjoyed a couple of hours supping a few pints. The beer selection is very solid with reliable permanent casks and many guest ales as well. An extensive bottle list is also available. The interior is quite basic but inviting nonetheless. Some interesting bar snacks with the likes of jerky, insects and chocolate. Friendly barman. Easily walkable from the town centre. A classic.
A freehouse with a huge range of beers on cask, keg and bottles. Two rooms with a bar serving both the tap room and the main room. The tap and cask menu are displayed on blackboards and includes both local Yorkshire ales and brews from other counties and countries, even from Italy. They do the draught beers in thirds. The bottled menu had quite a few beers from Norwegian breweries like Haandbryggeriet and Nøgne Ø. The pub is, in fact, a steady-going beer festival. Cozy atmosphere and friendly, professional service (visited as our second pub during a crawl in Huddersfield 09.07.2014).

Visited here Saturday 23rd April 2011 which I think was my second visit here, we’d been the year before Good start as the young lad behind the bar lets us bring our bikes right through the pub and out into the back garden to save having to faff about locking them up. Incredible range of beers, in fact I was gobsmacked at the choice, the bottled beer list was damn healthy too. Very friendly and helpful staff, great choice of beers with Mikkeller, De Molen, Gadds, Brewdog, Thornbridge etc on tap. I could have this as my local any day. Great place. We visited here again on Friday 14th and Saturday 15th February 2014. This really is a truly fantastic place, there can be few places anywhere that can match this in the UK, it just gets better and better for beer choice, on both nights we chatted with the clientele. The staff are very knowledgeable and with younger staff involved this place is really looking secure for the future. I cannot praise it enough, it was busy but not uncomfortable, I only wish this was my local.
