Very nice bar staff and a good choice of beers. The decor could do with a massive overhaul and the rooms are rather dark.

Slow slow, no quick quick, slow. Not Ossett 's finest, needs some input re staff training and awareness. As for the locals, pretty close to the League of Gentlemen. An unhappy hour spent here.
