Despite having 6 ales on, with their own Clarkes beers on at £1.98 a pint; it's not a pub many real ale drinkers get excited about. It's not hard to see why, the beer selection moves slowly from the boring to the unsurprising then back again, and all of the beers seem to have Henry Boons own signature flavour: mild disappointment. The barmaids all have tough love lives in here, and if you hang around the bar too long after receiving your change you'll soon get to hear all about it so the Sky TVs and newspapers have their uses. Landlady Barbara is great comedy, stand at a ssfe distance and eavesdrop while she mercilessly humiliates staff and punters alike. Her incessant bad moods ensure both have a healthy turnover. 7/10.

Called in late afternoon between trains. Friendly welcome and tasty range of ales on offer. Enjoyed a pint of the excellent Ossett Big Red in tip-top condition. Relaxed atmosphere in this pub laid out in a spacious, floor-boarded alehouse style. Definitely worth a visit. 9/10.

I was here on Easter Sunday just before 12.00 noon but there was a lady serving.
Next to Westgate Station so worth a visit if waiting for a train like I was.
They have six hand pulls 3 for Clarks 1 for Tim Taylors Landlord & 2 guests.
I had a pint of Clarks Westgate Gold which is 4.2% & cost only 1.93 a pint.

I am long-term visitor to this pub but since a new manager took over, a small man with a nasty face, I have felt hostility from him with every visit. The last time I visited he insulted me as I walked in the door! Can you believe it! I challenged him but I refrained from punching him, although I certainly will next time. The barmaid was polite enough, although obviously embarrassed. There's a nasty atmosphere in there now, even the customers seem rougher. The place is a nasty little dive while that jumped-up Napoleon is there. Don't go there, it's a dump.
