Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Turks Head is an amazing pub in the heart of Sowerby bridge. It sits just off the main street on the way to the railway station.
I went a few years ago and to be honest, I was wondering if it could survive, it was tired looking and was very quiet. However, it has since changed hands and it has undergone a huge transformation!!
It's not been altered much physically but a lot of effort has gone into creating a lovely outdoor area next to the river/canal.
I have been a few times in the last year or so and it is always packed, despite this, the service is excellent with hardly any waiting time at the bar.
It has an excellent atmosphere and would be my local if I lived in Sowerby

Visited this pub whilst on a stay at Sowerby Bridge. This pub is excellent value for money the cask ale was really good. The staff we encountered were lovely and helpful when we needed a taxi. Well worth a visit would definitely go back again

It's just off the main road but you can easily walk past..

It's a good traditional pub with a good atmosphere and a wide selection of real ales.

Nice beer garden in the summer too.
