This iconic award-winning brew pub in Huddersfield has a charming and unique character. Packed full of eye-catching art and imaginative decoration, the Rat & Ratchet is an exceptional drinking experience with the widest appeal.

The highly successful Rat Brewery is housed beneath the pub and supplies not only the pub but establishments and festivals countrywide.

The Rat and Ratchet has been part of Huddersfield’s real ale scene for many years, regularly winning awards from CAMRA and others. This friendly, recently refurbished pub offers 12 hand pulled ales: three Rat beers (from the award-winning on site Rat Brewery), three from Ossett Brewery, and six guest beers including dedicated mild and stout/porter pumps. A range of ciders and perries are also available. There is a popular pub quiz on a Wednesday, and regular beer festivals are held.
