Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Idle, West Yorkshire, BD10 9PY.

A two-roomed pub in Albion Road, a converted Victorian building formerly housing a restaurant and originally a grocer’s shop and wine merchants. There are two rooms, with a terrace at the rear. Converted to pub use in 2001 as part of the excellent Market Town Taverns chain and taken over later by Beerhouses.

We have visited this pub twice, seen 6 different beers and tried 2 of them.
