Very much setup like a wetherspoons pub. Food and drinks are averagely priced and of a good quality for the price you pay. Interior is modern and atmosphere good. Staff friendly and relatively prompt. Good overall.

Called in for a coffee waited 15 mins to be served poor solo bar man was rushed of his feet serving on and delivering food to customers. We left without a coffee after a ridiculously long wait pub untidy and dirty. Come on management open your eyes and get a grip get it sorted.

This used to be a very good pub but unfortunately has seen a dramatic decline over recent years which is a shame because it has potential. It has rude bar staff who cannot pull a decent drink - dont know who to serve at bar and food - dont even go there for the sake of your life! Music is... More

We ordered two burgers and they arrived fresh from the microwave, tasting of nothing, with chips that had been cooked in very dirty oil. No one checked on our table and our plates weren't taken away for over an hour. Awful.

Spent many years when I was young visiting Ossett with my family. The town centre has not changed in 40+ years. It had the heart ripped out of it in the 70's and nothing has changed since then. I am upset and sad to relate it is dreary heartless and depressing. This place is ok but dragged down by the... More

Time for a swift Guinness before watching the Jersey Boys at Ossett Town Hall. Had breakfast here before as well. Not half bad and good value.

I’ve been a few times on Friday and Saturday nights for drinks, but the clientele keeps getting younger and younger, which is a shame as the pub itself is quite nice. It’s decorated nicely enough, has a decent selection at the bar and the staff are friendly. But I wouldn’t go again for evening drinks. I recently visited with a... More
