Stopped here for lunch while walking along the canal. It was a lovely day so we sat outside. The menu was varied - usual pub grub. We opted for a baguette and a panino. Both came with a dressed salad and what must have been a whole packet of plain crisps. Both were tasty and filling enough to set us on the second leg of our journey. Our dog also enjoyed a cool drink of water.

We would stop here again if we walk along this way again. Guest ales available for the beer drinkers.

Myself and my partner joined a friend on Easter Sunday for drinks. It was approx 8:50. We'd visited with the intention of having 2 or 3 drinks, as had no work the following day.
As my friend had his little girl with him, they left shortly after 9pm.

Except the owner and staff member, there was only one regular left other than us.
With no warning, the owner did everything possible to make us feel unwelcome. Music off, doors open to a chilly breeze, yet he hadn't offered last orders, or even said he wanted to close early.

The final straw however, was when he let 2 dogs out his flat to roam all over us! We know it's a dog friendly pub, but having been for a nice meal elsewhere, we were dressed quite smartly, and had the owner used common sense, it was obvious we didn't want the dogs attentions.

We finished the drinks, the owner could not wait to follow us out the already locked gate to let us out. Ironically he thanked us.

Having vowed not to eat there again after a luke warm Sunday dinner some weeks earlier, we will never step foot in the again for drinks either. It's a shame, as his staff are pleasant, it's a great location, lovely traditional pub, but the owner clearly has very little interest serving drinks past 9pm.

What a lovely canal side pub. Family friendly and dogs also welcome. Open fire, really nice informal atmosphere and great food at very reasonable prices. Staff are all very welcoming too.
This pub is just off the Leeds ring road at Rodley but you would never know as it is hidden away down by the Leeds/Liverpool canal. Check before you go as opening hours are reduced in the Winter. Highly recommended.

Great little pub, in a great location, staffed by very friendly people and serving great food and good beer at a reasonable price....What more to say? Pop along and eat, drink and be merry...You can walk it off with a canal side walk afterwards, but watch your step if you've had a few ;)

Stopped off at The Railway whilst cycling along the canal, lovely stopping off point next to Calverley bridge and very popular with riders, walkers and locals.

Decided to have lunch and Bacon Burger and Chicken Burgers were huge and extremely tasty - home made chips were especially good.

Would highly recommend
