The Grove has a snazzy new sign. But little has changed inside. We sat in a different bar to my last visit. If you turn left as you enter, you will find a full list of the pub's beer selection. Yesterday, it was Oakham Citra, JHB & Green Devil, Thornbridge Brother Rabbit & Sequoia, Marble American Amber, Hawkshead Five Hop, Mallinson's Oblivious, Northern Monk Strannik Eton Mess, Kirkstall Pale & Solitude, Okell's MPA, Moor Amoor, Campervan Leith Juice, Cloudwater AW18 Red Ale, Bristol Beer Factory Kazbek City Shuffle, Fallen Big Raspberry Dog Chew Chew & Pomona Island Simcoe & Mosaic. There only appeared to be the solitary real cider this time. It was La Cantina Strawberry Fields. I really do like this pub. There is a lot of competition for real ale pubs in this fabulous town. But, I think this trumps the others.

Second pub of the day, after earlier opening Sportsman. Found our own route of taking a right up the hill and then up some steps, along a footpath above station and through a few car parks. Well worth the journey, too many beers to mention, so all strengths covered, prices starting at £3.10 a pint. Quirky in parts and being five minute walk from centre either a good or bad thing depending on your preferences, did have quite a local feel to it.

How on earth is the Grove averaging 7.6/10? There's all the beer choice you could wish for and more, always in tip-tip condition and in a friendly atmosphere. Only downside - no comfortable seating.
Regarding "sour" barman - well, that can only mean the miserable young Ulster tw@ because the rest are fine, so I can't argue on that point.

The Grove is situated just behind the town's new leisure centre. It was my final pub of the day in Huddersfield and I'd saved the best until last. I'd read that there were 19 real ales and didn't think for one minute they'd all be on. But sure enough, they were - Oakham Citra, Thronbridge Jaipur & Handsome, Timothy Taylor Landlord, Vocation Bread and Butter, Atom Schrodinger's Cat, Durham White Velvet, Hawkshead Cumbrian Shop, Mallinsons Azacca, Adnams Samba City, Shiny Wrench, Brass Castle Dream Time, Sadlers Hop Bomb, Beer Ink Flagship, Fallen Chew Chew, London Beer Lab Bramling End, Green Jack Summer Dream, Brodies Shoreditch Sunshine & Northern Monk Grove Birthday Beer. There were also 3 ciders - Cornish Orchards Gold, La Cantina Yesterday's Dream & Westons Old Rosie. All of these, along with craft beers were listed on blackboards. A most impressive selection and the 2 I had were good quality. I believe there were 2 rooms, served by the central bar. But I'd had a few by this time. Whilst I have scored this a 9/10, the same as the Rat & Ratchet, this pub was a toss up between a 9 or a 10, whereas the Rat & Ratchet was more at the 8 end of the 9's! They're both excellent pubs that aren't too far away from them. The Grove was slightly nearer the bus station, enabling me to catch the last bus of the night back to my hotel. Certainly the best pub in Huddersfield I tried and probably in my top 10 for the country.

I read somewhere (not sure if it was on here or not), that this place had “gone downhill a lot”. Well all I can say is that person must have a steel bolt through their head ! It is still as wonderful as ever.

I’ll let the numbers speak for themselves. The board listed no few that 19 “cask ales” on tap, together with 15 “craft keg” beers. And if that wasn’t enough to satisfy you, there is a list of bottled beers as long as your arm (kept in a strange wooden box locked on a chain !). The range was varied as well, I had no trouble finding something I liked (a stout and a porter) nor did my friend (a bitter and golden ale). The ones we tried were in tip-top condition.

There was a lively atmosphere, and live entertainment as well.

9/10 – still one of my all time favourite pubs !
