2 Ossett beers (Silver King and Yorkshire Blonde) plus Landlord on the handpumps tonight. Quality OK. Still has Sky

Popped in here whilst getting lost looking for O' Donoghues (which was just round the corner, d'oh!!) and wasn't expecting much, so was fairly happy to see three ales (Black Sheep, Landlord and Deuchars, plus a real cider in Old Rosie) and even happier to find that Landlord was in good shape (£2.80p/p). Judging by the comments below, maybe I got lucky that day?

The pub is a classic V shape as it sits on a tight junction corner. Whilst the outside looks scrubbed and snazzy (I assumed it'd be more like up-market winery) the interior is stuck in the 70's akin to the Black Rock, but a lot lighter inside - the old bar is quite lovely. It's clean and tidy, the solitary barmaid was busying herself polishing the brass and wood in between serving customers.

There's a TV (SKY) along with the daily papers and a load of Rugby league paraphernalia - I assume this must be a Wakefield RFC hangout on match days. the toilets should be listed they looked ancient. The old vs New contrast continues on the way to the traps, as the gents corridor walls are plastered in football clippings and Page 3 girls - very New Lad.

Not exactly an essential experience but you could do worse...

thats the trouble, the ale was only ever "half decent" at best. I lost count of the amount of Deuchars and pints of Black Sheep I have taken back...

A small, traditional street-corner pub. It feels cosy, with an L-shaped floor plan, on two levels.

A warm welcome from the young barmaid, but unfortunately, none of the four hand pumps had any real ale on, I suspect permanently. Instead, I was directed towards John Smith’s ‘Smoothflow’. I voted with my feet and retreated out the door.

A few years ago, The Graziers sold a half decent pint of Landlord and it was a genuine shock to see such a decline and lack of choice.

A great shame.

Good selection of real ales. Really pleasant especially when quiet.
