A must do pub whenever in Keighley, under new management since December 2016 and still just as good as ever.

Evening. Superb Taylor pub with the whole range of their cask beers. The Cottage Brewery drayman delivered Atlantic as I was there; he was doing a two day "tour" of Yorkshire and the Midlands delivering (and collecting empties).

Saturday at 11:00 as soon as the doors opened. A warm welcome from the landlord, and a most enjoyable visit to this superb pub.

A group of us met here for a pint before travelling in the real ale buffet car on the Keighley and Worth Valley steam railway. The beer was so good that we became dangerously close to missing the train.
