What a fantastic pub. Top notch Taylors beers and the most amazing food. Sun-Thurs 5-7 they do a teatime special any pizza, pasta or burger for £6.95. We have been numerous times with family and it is beginning to get difficult to choose from the menu now due to it all being fabulous. They serve Timothy Taylors Landlord, Golden Best and awarding wining Boltmaker. Definitely our favourite pub in Keighley. Keep up the good work John and staff.

Popped in for a pint, snack and a chance to sit in the sun after being advised this was the best chance of all 3 by helpful staff in The Gatehouse nearby. Lot of effort spent on making it different to the standard locals in the area, very nice appearance, proper beers and good food. Wouldn't make it my local, but exactly what was wanted at the time.

It's okay. Has a bit of a false atmosphere inside since the refurb like a chain pub but there are some real ales on

cant understand the reviews on the top up policy i ordered a landlord and the nice girl who served me said ill just let it settle. and topped it up ..ok it was not the best pint of tt that ive drunk but not the worst ..i can also see why the pub does not go down well with the locals a real smart trendy place in the shitest dump of a town in west yorkshire..

The biggest embarrasment to Timothy Taylor brewery. You can always replace bad staff but the "absolutely no top up of your drink" policy really gets up your gander. Endless complaints every week to Camra and Trading Standards. Best advice to punters is AVOID! and to Tim Taylors - sell it or close it down. Britains worst evidence yet of Customer Service and Value For Money. Bad attitude with a capital F.

This must be the only pub in Britain where the manager actively refuses to top up your pint! And at these prices they clearly are rubbing your nose in it. Prententious pub, pretentious staff. Go over the road to The Red Pig, friendly, busy and great full pints at good prices!

On a recent revisit to Keighley I went in the pub.Make no mistake it has been tastefully refurbished and is spacious and comfortable.The menu looks good and it has a good range of real ales.BUT it is not the Rodney I used to be a regular at. This was full of character and characters. The new Rodney is bland and characterless. It could be anywhere and is certainly not a Keighley pub. They are obviously aiming at a different clientele and I am not convinced that clientele exists in sufficient numbers in Keighley. The relatively low score it seems to have been given reflects this.If I lived in Keighley now it would be an occasional visit place,not a regular haunt.

Dropped by yesterday for my first visit since the rebuilding. Interior brings to mind the bar area of a modern boutique hotel - all clean lines, comfy booths and high chairs. Very impressive bottled beer selection - I can't recall the last time I saw the marvellous Brugs Zot in a British pub. They also had Orval, Westmalle and Kwak - all served in their traditional beer-specific glasses. These were all about 3.20 a bottle, which I though was pretty reasonable. There's also the regular Taylor ales. Service was typical Keighley - friendly and chatty. It's not a place I'd go to regularly, but it's a nice change from the usual. Taylor's have a winner here - good to know that the brewery are forward-looking as well as being a company that preserves the traditional.

What a transformation - now opened for a few weeks after full rebuild/refurbishment. Huge amount of money spent and it shows - clever design and high quality fixtures make it stand out from all the other pubs in the area. Full range of Taylors beers plus great selection of foreign bottles add to the interest. Beer is a bit expensive but not ridiculously so given the target market. Had a meal on 3 separate occasions recently (lunchtime) and the food was excellent. Hope it does well.

Cradders - I'm no Luddite. I'm looking forward to the Rodney reopening. Such a prime site was wasted on the old incarnation of the pub. It's just a shame that the old building was demolished. I don't know the ins and outs of the state of the old structure - maybe it couldn't be saved. But it is a crying shame that the old Yorkshire Stone roof tiles have been replaced with something that looks like it came from a Homebase bank holiday sale.

The Question has to be, would you prefer the pub to be the 'terrifying' pub of old or one which offers an option to keighley not available before.
Too many of the pubs are offering similar things to similar markets. We are aiming to offer quality food in the town centre as well as quality drinks.

The only common thing about tradition is that tradition often changes

Hmm. Not sure about the brand new building - it looks like a Disney replica of what was there before. A sign says it'll reopen in June.
