The Railway, Calverley

Visit 13:00 Thursday lunch time and there is no one in the pub, but the bar man and the chef stood taking behind the bar.

Starting with the positives: the your bar man was very polite and obliging, The food, fish & Chips and a home made fish finger sandwich were very good. The light beer from a Skipton brewery was excellent, even though we had the first two pints out of the pump.

Negatives, there was either no extraction in the kitchen or it was not turned on, as the pub was full of a thin blue haze of cooking oil and the smell of cooking fat. The seating has seen better days, but the cost of replacing this may well be prohibitive, however, up to this point our visit had been enjoyable.

Then an over indulgent couple who had entered the pub a little earlier with a baby, taking photos of the baby and generally cooing about their little treasure, felt is acceptable to change the baby, in the pub, on the seating. Given the customers were clearly too ignorant to understand that not everyone is as enamored with their baby as they are and would really not wish to witness or smell this process when eating or drinking, the bar staff should have asked them to move to the toilets to change the baby.

The True Lovers Knot, Tarrant Keyneston

The pub changed hands in late July 2010 and the fat Yorkshire man has now left the building!

The pub is so much better now, clean and warm and now there is a proper chef the food is varied and tasty.

Beer was good and a warm welcome. it was nice to see people in the pub again.

Carniceria, Holmfirth


You are about 15 years too late. This bar was really happening in the mid 90's. When it opened it changed Holmfirth and the expectations of the locals.

At that time, the Nook was also exceptionally busy. You are just too late to the party, while you arrived fashionable late the party had moved on.

The real cause of the demise of both pubs was the death of the driving force and the subsequent family war over control and direction of the business.

Though in reality neither the of the bars were that good, just that locals held to the tradition.
