I've been a few times since discovering it. The beer is really well looked after and the choice of craft/cask ales/beers excellent. I've only eaten once but the food is really good, not cheap but I think value for money. This place was refurbished after...More

We stopped here for tea, we decided on the 3 for £15 option to share We chose BBQ baby back ribs , chicken wings and nachos. All were tasty and filling. This is the second time we have been here and it does not disappoint

We called into here whilst visiting Saltaire. We got a table with no problem - in the quieter first section - overlooking the park. Really nice atmosphere and excellent value for money. I would visit here again if we were in the area. Give it...More
