I meant beer not ' bear' just in case the thought of a grizzly put you off.

Wow. Its superb. Don't let the secret out, although I suspect plenty do know. Brilliant food and even better bear. Thank heavens I don't live in Emley or I'd be in the divorce courts!

Great beer, food and atmosphere. Nothing else to say really!

Steve's (landlord) reputation for keeping a pristine, well-kept cellar and almost nurturing beers to perfection proceeds him and i was not disapointed. My first time there I had: Osset's Light Ale, Pale Gold and Excellsior along with guest ales- Indian Pale Ale and Kletswater from the Anglo-Dutch Brewery. There were 8 hand-pumps in total.

Drinking previously and most prominently at the Rat & Ratchet in Huddersfield along with other Osset pubs, The Tap and Fernandes I had sampled the Osset beers before. However, none of which surpassed the quality of beer at The White Horse. The White Horse not only has great beers but is accompanied by a warm and welcoming atmosphere encouraged by a friendly, outgoing bar-staff and a great village ethos for regulars and new-comers to take part in.

If i were to offer an area of improvement, it would be within the furnishings. Osset did a great job with the stone-flagged-floor, wood burning fire, dark woods and copper tables. Emley, however, has a rich and interesting history; the Emley Moor Mast and its collapse, coal-mining, industry, farming and the football team. None of which is portrayed within the pub. The wall-hangings are common and mass produced. A pub to aspire to in this respect is the Rat and Ratchet - original posters, historic and ancient ale glasses, goblets and trinkets.

Another would be the Jukebox, there is no excuse for Manalow or 'Whine'house!

Overall an excellent pub and i will return again and again. 9.5/10.

Refurbished in Ossett style. Clean, sparkling row of hand pumps, stone floor and a crackling wood fire in the range. House beer standard Ossett bitter was perfect quality and at a reasonable 2.05 pint. Real crisps, real ale, real fire.
