No relation to the one in Horbury. This is the brewery tap for Clarke's Brewery and so serves their real ales including Blonde and seasonal's plus the ubiquitous Landlord. It gets very busy at weekends with beer tourists and the like. It does not serve food but is close to the station. There are two rooms using barrels as tables, plus a jukebox and live music. There is also a thatched canopy above the bar. No accommodation here but try the Talbot and Falcon, another real ale pub in the town centre with changing guest ales.
