They like their cask beer at West Yorkshire’s first community-owned pub, which reopened in 2014. There are always six hand-pumps in the compact bar, offering beers that change as regularly as the weather in this part of the world (breweries include Nomadic and Wild Child). The pub also hosts beer tastings, meet-the-brewer nights and an annual harvest festival. During the 2015 flooding, the pub, sitting on higher land, acted as hub and hearth for those affected by the deluge. This is a well-pubbed part of the world, but the atmopshere and beers mark it out as special.
