hi this pub is friendly/warm welcome from staff to other customers, the only one thing wrong is they don't sell a proper flat cider eg Old Rosie/westerns scrumpy,on a weekend eve go early as not alot of seating.

Fabulous decor. Warm, cosy and welcoming. Excellent service with good selection of drinks. Pleasant background music - not too loud so you can still have a conversation. Will return soon.

This is technically my local since moving close by a couple of years ago when it reopened following change of ownership. Great atmosphere and good regular entertainment nights. Its the place to go in Pontefract.

Considering what this pub used to be like, it's very nice now. Huge amount of drink options and is a nice place to have a quiet drink, both during the day and at night.
