Very nice pub which concentrates on food. We had the Keys Burgers which were very nice and more than we could eat. The Copper Dragon beer was lovely. The staff were good and were coping well with the busy lunchtime crowd. One of thebest pubs for food on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal.

Popped in here Saturday just gone for a quick pint with the wife on the way to the parents. Haven't been in for at least 20 years, probably more. What enticed me back in was that the pub sign, from which it appears this is a Copper Dragon house. I'm a big fan of this Skipton Brewery's beers.

Encouragingly, the main drinking area inside hasn't changed much at all - the inglenook's still there and it still has that not quite right 'just thrown together' look. What I mean by this, is that from the outside you'd think it all little rooms, nooks and crannies - but it's not as it's largely open plan. What was new was the emphasis on food and an attached large dining area entranced via the main bar. Most folk were dining, just us and another couple drinking.

Had a pint of Copper Dragon Best and Scott's 1816 and both were, as usual in my experience with this brewery, excellent.

Summing up, I quite enjoyed it. They had the full range of beers from CD and they were well looked after. They make a play on food, but it seemed pretty good from the look of it and the satisfied murmurings of the punters. We might have been in the minority being just drinkers that late afternoon but the way it's set up, 'eaters and drinkers' are catered for fine. We all know pubs where drinkers can feel unwelcome with respect to diners (never t'other way round), and it's good to see the balance right. In this day and age, and for a pub in it's locale, that's good.

I've only ever drunk here, after walking the local paths. The Copper Dragon has always been excellent and the surroundings, inside and out, very pleasant. A top place from which to descend to the L&L Canal for a stroll - before or after the beer!

A short walk from the Canal this pub offers great beers from Copper Dragon and Black Sheep in superb nick.
I ate here a couple of times recently the Sunday lunch was spectacular as is the steak and ale pie. Its not cheap but it is good value, Icould have handled more veggies but nevetheless you had better be hungry!
