I met up with an old friend for our annual chinwag as we were able to meet off trains from east and west. The impressive range of beers with 10 hand pumps must suit anyone who enjoys a good pint such as Black Sheep, which I sampled. Unfortunately I had just missed the homemade pie by a day (served only... More

Just a great selection of good beers, especially like the fact you can get a taster, or the do 3 gills for £3 (at least I think it was that cost), no airs and graces, just good beer.

We have been here before and was really impressed with the selection of drinks and the simple hearty comfort food. However, our second visit made us both never want to visit again! When we asked for a couple of menus the bartender stared at me blankly before fetching for a lady who I assume was the shift manager. She shrugged... More

A lovely little old fashioned pub. Cosy, with a great selection of drinks and friendly staff, what more do you need? We haven't eaten here so unfortunately i can't rate the food but if you want somewhere for a nice quiet drink i highly recommend West Riding,

Great beer, lovely pizzas and homemade chips. The decor is beautiful and has so many period features. Bar staff always friendly. Warm fires and nice atmosphere. They also have an outside area where they host bands. Worth a visit.

Real Ale, Real Cider, Real Food, Real Fires, Real People, Real Passion...Real Pub. Situated in the original waiting room, on Platform 2, of Dewsbury train station The West Riding was the first member of the beerhouses family, back in 1994, its' our flag ship pub, it's success and experience has been passed on to the other four pubs in the group... Inviting, friendly, approachable staff and customers, facilitating an inkling that after one visit, you're pretty much a regular and will be welcomed back fondly with open arms and a big grin! We've a top notch selection of ale from local and countrywide breweries, kept to Cask Marque quality standards. Beautiful outer architecture, enhanced by cascading ivy on the front of the building. Inside a three room set up with quirky signs and pictures adorning the walls, giving a weary traveller a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. The West Riding Refreshment Rooms is part of the Transpennine Real Ale Trail.
