Pub number three of a tour of decent pubs close to tram stops. Most tables were occupied, background music was playing which I have not noticed on my previous visits to this pub. See Jason's entry for full beer listing.

Otley - Oxymoron5.50ExcellentI was really looking for something in the 3.8 to 4% category but could not resist this. A delicious dark beer.

Split level micropub busy in the lower room empty in the upper. Music playing unusual for this type of pub. Still no Doom Bar very disappointed.

I was the first customer in at opening time and had the opportunity of a good chat with the very enthusiastic landlord. A good micropub, I have not listed all the beers that were available.
