Great little pub with fantastic beer and staff, part of the holy trinity of a good night out in Hudds that avoids the town centre and overpriced lager:
Rat n Ratchet, Grove, Sportsman - Job done!
Hudd's pub of year 2011 and not surprised its a great pib with a wide range of real ales at not bad price . Decor cross between trad and modern . Easy reach of town centre .
Newest addition to Huddersfields Real Ale Trail; ideal location 2 minutes walk from the Railway Station by the viaduct above Tesco's. Recently aquired by Mike Field who also has the West Riding Licensed Refreshment Rooms on Dewsbury Station and the Cellar Bar by Batley station. The exterior is plain but hides a well preserved art deco interior with many original features. Add to this 6 well kept Real Ales and I am in 7th heaven! Given this pubs pedigree and location it should be a Real Ale Mecca! There is also a seated outdoor smoking area to the rear.
