66 /100 GOODER LANE, RASTRICK
“Visited on our way to and from a local non-league match. The nearest pub to Brighouse Station. Lively and welcoming on a Saturday lunchtime. Two rooms, heavily decorated with Music memorabilia, someone is clearly a Beatles fan. Proper "local" feel, but we felt very welcome with the staff and patrons helping us with taxis and advice.. 5 ales on tap, Tetleys and Copper Dragon appear to be regulars, we had a couple of pints of Tiny Rebel Juicy, which was fresh and well kept. Prices reasonable, around £3-3.50 a pint. Probably wouldn't find an esoteric lambic here, but ticks all the boxes if you want a couple of pints of an afternoon in a cosy local.“

“In a prefabricated building right next to the small market place (hence the name), the bar and main room is to the left after you enter, and they've done a good job of making this a cosy little micropub, coupled with the fact they have a fantastic rotating selection of cask ales over six pumps. There's not a lot of room so the tables and chairs are small, but there's no less charm to the place for them.“

“Very small bottle shop right in the heart of the town centre behind the Old Ship Inn. There's a decent domestic selection from craft brewers both locally and nationally plus a few foreign craft bottles too, including some from newbies brewing in Eastern Europe.“

Czerwik (Beer Store)
82 COMMERCIAL STREET
“Mainly a delicatessen in the front of the shop, there’s tasters of the alcoholic beverages on offer here, but the crux is to the rear and below. The underground is given over to the wine cellar, and it’s a lovely atmospheric place that’s worth a look around, even if you don’t drink this beverage. There’s also wine tasting here each Saturday. For ale lovers the the selection is on a raised level at the rear of the ground floor and has a predominantly Yorkshire selection that’s fairly extensive, so will suit any out-of-toweners that make it here. (It’s not too far off the motorway either if you can afford an extra 30 minute diversion whilst on the M62). There are a number of beers brewed away from God’s Own County as well.“

“Located a healthy 10 minute walk north of the town centre (follow the road past the Tesco and its petrol station). It’s just past the police station and is part of a short row of terrace houses that line much of the side of the road it is on - without its hanging pub sign you might easily miss this place. Inside the fairly large open plan room has seating immediately to your right and on an elevated platform area on the left. The bar further along the right of the pub has 8 ale pumps on two rows and will always have one or more Partners brews available given it’s their pub, but it also does a good line in guest ales and you can see the large array of craft that’s been here before on various places on the rooms ceiling. The decor is very traditional in style and there is a beer garden at the rear next to the car park as well as a smokers shelter.“

“Real ale pub at the foot of a small valley and right next to the fast-flowing stream that enters the river Calder shortly after this place. It’s right on the inside bend of the main road and has a few parking spaces available that can easily be missed if you’re not paying attention. It’s patio area also faces the bend in the road and includes a few tables in a fenced off environment which is useful if you’ve brought your dog. Dogs are allowed inside in what is a large one room affair on stone floors with wooden tables and chairs. There’s eight cask ale pumps here with half of these rotating. The permanent brews are all from regional craft brewers.“

“The only Wetherspoon pub in Brighouse naturally means it can be a busy affair, there are only a handful of pubs anyhow. This one is relatively small and the conversion only took in the ground floor leaving the balcony area and its giant organ to be enjoyed from below. There is an attached patio area for overspill although it is probably frequented more by smokers when the weather is bad. The usual Wetherspoon features, food and drink apply, but it is a nice enough place to enjoy them.“

“There’s not too many places to choose from in the town centre, but this place stands out. Firstly its design, with a Tudor style front looks out of place in a typical Yorkshire town built out of giant stone bricks. Secondly the inside looks as old as the outside, with one open L-shaped room with wooden beams holding up the floor above. These are hard to see as pump clips adorn every part of them, proving this place is a real ale drinkers dream. The emphasis is on a changing selection of ales and dominate the length of the bar, so there is no problem in choice even if one or two run out. Lager is available but again highly regarded continental brews are the choice as well as Amstel. There’s two fireplaces in the walls, one with a wood burner, although it was too warm on the day for it to be used so I can’t say if it is furnishing or functional. ****UPDATE**** Last visited in 2015, but I have been told since that the pub has now gone basic and the superb ale choice has been significantly reduced.“
