Visited on 27th May. Corner pub with Tudor black and white frontage. Looks impressive and it’s a nice old building with lots of wood and old features. Beer range was good with a decent mix of cask beers from around the UK. Had Tiny Rebel selection in bottles as well as one on tap. Service good. Prices good. A good spot for beer in town.

Once one of the major destinations for any real ale lover in Halifax, this pub had a fine selection although there seemed to be a bias of Nethergate and Empire, both of whom provided the pub with its own named brews in cask and keg form, however plenty of other breweries were available too. It has now changed hands and the new owner with its new name has kept 8 of the hand pumps, but the selection is not as eclectic in 2017 as in previous years. It’s a slightly unusual building with a pseudo-Tudor appearance both externally and internally and there’s a medieval quality about the layout with the imposing windows seemingly holding light back rather than letting it in giving it a lighting effect like a room in a castle. There’s one main area and a side area with a fireplace and the bar extends here. A television screen has been installed by the new regime with Sky Sports.

Imposing neo-Tudor corner pub from 1931, originally the Royal Oak. The original four-room layout is now one, but wood beams, carving, panelling and fireplaces survive. The leaded windows are elaborately decorated. A range of local micro-brewery real ales at good prices make for a popular and lively venue.
