Situated near the Calder and Hebble canal, this pub is handy stopping off point if you're walking from Wakefield to Dewsbury. Interestingly, it's adjacent to two breweries - Bobs Brewery (whose Red Lion beer you'll often find in the pub) and Ossett Brewery. The pub always stocks a beer from Oakham (which was Citra when I visited). I think I counted 7 or 8 handpumps. The food is good value no nonsense pub grub.

Incidentally, the pub isn't in Ossett - it's a couple of miles out of town at Healey Mills, which is a former railway marshalling yard. There is an occasional bus that visits, but do check. Failing that, it's a very pleasant 2 mile rural walk along the canal into Dewsbury (where many beery delights await!)

Enjoy this pub as my local, good ales, cider and others. reasonable pricing and something for everyone. Having eaten in both the pub and the restaurant i must say i prefer what is on offer in the pub, but that's just my opinion! I have always found the staff to be welcoming and pleasant, I'm looking forward to the beer festival in august too - last years was excellent!

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah.
One of the most difficult things to deal with in life is change.
OK, so 'fings ain't wot they used to be'. (According to some) and perhaps they are right.
I have seen changes, some good, some not so good but in all aspects of life there has to be change. Change is evolution and that is the situation at the Brewers right now.
Speculate as you will, only time will tell if Sally and Jon have gone in the right direction.
For me, and I will stand up and be counted, I'm Steve Stocks, aka Songara, I shall continue to drink at what has to be the best pub in the Northern Union and no, I have not eaten at the restaurant. I believe it to be a little too expensive for what is on offer but this is very subjective.
Let Sally and Jon get on with their new venture but please remember it is still a great pub selling a fantastic range of real ales (thats great coming from me, a bloke who only drinks cider and dark beer).
Let's see what happens in the next twelve months.

I agree with ‘minesawhitelion’ to a certain extent - 1st of September must have it in for the Brewers’ because I cannot remember any hog roast either and I was on the strong stuff!

Also the standard of pint presentation has certainly dropped over the last 6 months and this is a much discussed staff selection come management/training issue. The staff seemingly spend more time ‘playing’ with the till than serving beer.

However, the main thing wrong with the Brewers Pride in my opinion is it was a great pub that’s been lost in transition. The focus/emphasis has changed from being a good friendly pub, full of regulars with great beers to a pricy eatery selling pub food at high restaurant prices given the location. The management’s concern at the moment should be the dwindling amount of customers (its haemorrhaging ex regulars at an alarming rate) through the door rather than the white elephant restaurant upstairs. Or are they not that bothered about its regular clientele?

That 1st of september posting is fiction, I reckon some people have it in for this pub (bit like trip advisor hotel reviews) and there was a burger bar this year not a hog roast. I certainly don't recognise the description of staff either, they were all doing their best under very trying conditions. However, I notice that the standard of pint presentation has dropped since the influx of new staff and 'restaurantisation' of the place, but they are polite and never surly.
The beer festival was a model of how it should be done, great organisation, all beers served correct temperature and an excellent selection to suit all tastes.
My only gripe is that the pub is attracting more lager types.
