- Proper Pubs in Huddersfield
The Nook is my favourite in the Huddersfield area- but you do have to know what you’re letting yourself in for! Their own beers are cracking. That or the Fleece in Holme which is more conventional and does excellent food with excellent beer.
In the town centre there’s nothing great but my favourites are-
The West Riding- if you’re feeling brave it’s rough but has decent drink and the atmosphere is “exciting”- it gets in all the characters. Not in a proper pub building but definitely a proper pub.
The County- more traditional feeling and more welcoming.
The Olde Hat- Next to the bus station so can get some interesting folk in but definitely my favourite in town.Posted 4 years agoporlusMember
Whenever we went through Huddersfield it was always the head of steam. Last time thought we dif that and the other one. Forgot the name. Is it the kings head. Far better pub. Was rough round the edges with a cracking beer selection and some lively local types. Perfect.Posted 4 years agodthom3ukSubscriber
I love the Sportsman, was in there till late last night.
The Kings Head always serves an excellent pint, although it is like stepping into an episode of Life on Mars.
I spent most of my student years in the Rat and Ratchet. They are brewing their own beers now.
A less well known pub for a nice pint is the Cavalry Arms on Halifax Road. They usually have a couple of ales on and it’s a cosy pub with a friendly Landlord.Posted 4 years agoporlusMember
Thinking… train from Manchester to Hudds n back pub-crawling every station (inc. Stalybridge) next weekend
Be cracking day out as long as the stag/hen do lager crowd dont mob the trains. Heard a while back it was getting to be a problem with massive crowds of “non” real ale drinkers. Think a plan to combat it was to not serve any lagers. This was a few months back now, so not sure what it will be like now. Partners work mate said at the Marsden platform, Slaithwaite side they were cueing up the steps over the bridge waiting for a train. Nightmare.Posted 4 years ago
