|This has to be the best pub name ever ! A good walk from the station but well worth it and it was our last port of call before the football - in fact we liked it so much we called in again after the game (which we won 1-0) Taylors Best was excellent and they still use to old name - not the daft new Boltmaker!!! There was a good selection including a mild and the pub was busy before the match but we did not have to wait long to get served by the very friendly and cheery staff We were almost first in after the game so had more time to choose our beers but we stuck with Taylors as it was so good Single wedge shaped room with a snug at the back Very pleasant feel to it and a good atmosphere where we didn't feel out of place. Head out to The Slubbers and then you can get to The Sportsman on the way back into town. There are buses that pass by but the walk was not that difficult|

|Visited this pub for the 1st time last night and was impressed - it's unspoilt, the fire was blazing, it was quite busy and the licensees were really friendly.There were several real ales avilable including one at just ¬£1.60!|

|What on earth has gone wrong? 10pm Saturday - six people in, plus us two.|
Iíve always thought The Slubbers to be good but over-rated and more so since Taylors lost their way, but this was a depressing experience.
Letís start with the good Ė two different pints (not Taylorís) were excellent quality.
The bad. The place stank of bad drains. It was cold, and I donít feel the cold. Barmaid was clearly in training and the gaffer was wrong side of the bar, where he stayed even when nine people arrived together. He got off his arse to sweep up a broken glass.
Someone complained, so it took two staff to break some wood up for the fire, which lasted about five minutes.
What a shame. This pubís in a roughish part of Huddersfield but is full of character and has been a gold mine in the past. Maybe they rely on it being rammed before and after Town games.
Not rated it.

|Former Timothy Taylors pub, now independant. The beer range and prices have improved recently and quality is as good as ever. Lovely, traditional corner pub.|

|A street corner local which is owned by Timothy Taylors of Keighley, so expect the Taylor's range plus one guest beer. A new landlord took up the reins, just before Christmas 2008, and has smartened the place up a little and introduced a lunchtime menu which is proving popular. The Taylors Golden Best is particularly recommended. Some words of caution to first time visitors, though. The pub is close to Huddersfield Town's ground and is rammed with supporters whenever Town are at home, so check the fixture lists. Also, the red light district is nearby, so be careful if walking from town late on an evening. And, finally, the new landlord has significantly upped the prices - expect to pay £2.50+ a pint in an area where £2.20 - £2.30 is standard. |
