Visited here several times over our 2 week stay in Halifax. Great breakfasts, fab burgers and nice atmosphere for a pint or 3 at night. Staff all seemed to enjoy their work and were all friendly. Couldn't ask for more.

This is a spacious pub in an old building. The staff were friendly and efficient. Food arrived very quickly and was well presented and tasty. The beer, oh my goodness, was excellent. Eland Porter is a great real ale. Level access from the street.

There is a public car park directly across the road and another one slightly further away. There isn't one at the Barum Top itself.
