Very quiet on a Friday mid-afternoon but the Ossett ales were good and the landlady was very friendly.

We've always had a friendly welcome here. Has nice enclosed garden for summer and children are welcome. Always has quite a few real ciders. Why am I always in the car though?

Nice friendly, roadside pub that belongs to the Ossett Brewery chain. Several Ossett Brewery products on sale along with guest real ales and a draught cider. Nicely furbished and very clean. Free peanuts on the bar at time of my visits. Been 3/4 times now but it's never been very busy (admittedly all my visits were outside the 'peak' times). Well worth a look.

Having been reburbished to a high standard a couple of years back, this Osset Brewery pub is a definate destination for an ale or six.

There is the usual Osset Brewery suspects which always go down well and are well kept.

The "tap" room has been dedicated to yorkshire sportsman which is a plus and the sunday spread is also a bonus and the bar staff have always been friendly which with you cant say for some of these "chain" pubs....

The Shepherd’s Boy is a large, traditional, roadside pub about two thirds of a mile from the town centre. It is one of ten pubs owned by Ossett Brewery. Originally with four rooms, it has been sympathetically opened up into three drinking areas, two of which have wood burning stoves. There is an interesting bottle collection lining the walls.

Most Ossett pubs have eight real ales and there was a full range on this visit: ‘Excelsior’, ‘Silver King’, ‘Pale Gold’, ‘Shepherd’s Boy Bitter’ all from the Ossett brewery itself. Plus Timothy Taylor’s ‘Landlord’, Fernandes ‘Brewer’s Gold’, Oakham ‘Raucous Reindeer’ and Nethergate ‘Old Growler’. The ‘Old Growler’ was a satisfying and warming porter, perfect for a freezing cold day. Very fresh and well served.

The landlady was welcoming and friendly. She was more than happy to talk me through the beers.

I called on Sunday lunchtime and found it surprisingly quiet, but put that down to the pre-Christmas shopping rush, in town. Special mention must be made of the free bread and dripping, black pudding, pork pie and scotch eggs available on platters, at the bar . A nice touch. As was having four pint takeaway containers for the beers. I wish more pubs had this facility.

When you consider The West Riding Licensed Refreshment Rooms is also only a few minutes away, Dewsbury is very well served for quality real ale outlets.

Highly recommended.
