Real Ale Pubs in or near Holmfirth

We will be in the Holmfirth area late April. Any "must go" real ale pubs and/or brewpubs in that area?
tnx

So many to choose from! In Holmfirth itself, the 'Nook' is a family run pub serving Taylors beers, and is a definite 'must visit'. Further afield, The Sair at Linthwaite is a brew pub run by the legendary Ron Crabtree - if you don't go anywhere else, make sure you go here, I promise you will not be disappointed (not open weekday lunchtimes).
Then, there's the Riverhead Brewery Tap at Marsden, the Station Tavern on Huddersfield Railway Station (avoid the Head of Steam, also at the station), the Rat and Ratchet on the road to Lockwood (Ossett Brewery with guests) and the Star Inn, no more than 300 yds away from the Rat.
And if hungry, try Jumbos - a Chinese buffet - all you can eat for =A34.99 before 4.45pm , and a little more later.
If you get a Metro Day Rover (from the Railway or Bus Station) you can do all these pubs and more using any train or any bus for as many times as you want during the day (after 9.30am on weekdays) for =A34.50 per person or =A36 for two adults and up to 3 kids/dogs etc.
You are in for a treat. I am totally envious.

That's a demanding schedule. I hear the Shoulder, Lockwood's got another new licensee.

I have printed your note to take with us to Holmfirth. We look forward to the Taylor ales, especialy Landlord. We'll have that again in Keighley (sp??) of course. Really prefer the Ram Tam when I can get it, but it's not always to be found.
What's within an hour or so drive?? Used to be a great brewpub up in Oxenhope, but I believe he sold up. Any other great (!) ones around??

In the same vein that the Sair Inn is at "Linfit" People are free to make mistakes without ribbing from the locals[1] as most of the local names don't match the spelling. > of course.

Landlord + caramel. Still nice.

How's the Waggon and Hosses in Oxenhope these days, now that the brewer moved on?? I have also noted everal smaller brewers in the Keighly area. Any we should seek out while in the Haworth area (after Holmfirth). Also, last time over there was a small brewpub just outside of Leyburn, but I can't find it now. But .. I see a brewer in Askrigg now -- maybe the Leyburn brewpub moved to Askrigg??

Well yes but it's pronounced "sla-wit" with the emphasis on the "sla". As far as I remember the pub with the beer is the Star. That could have changed as it's a long time since I was there - but the pronounciation's still the same!

The only half decent pub in Slaithwaite is the Wharfeside. The others are very poor.
Paul in Slawit.

Ram Tam tends to be seen more in the winter and is around at the moment i many Taylors pubs. The Wagon and Horses is no longer a brew pub but is still a very good pub for beer and food. The branch area which stretches into North Yorkshire has 8 breweries the newest one is being extremely well received - Naylors which is at the Old White Bear at Crosshills.

Speaking of spelling and pronunciation... Why is the pub called the Wharfeside when it is alongside the canal wharf not the River Wharfe?

Peter,
I pointed this out to the landlord when the sign first went up. He was not amused!!

If you do get a day rover a 10 munute ride from the Station Tavern will bring you to the West Riding Refreshment Rooms on Dewsbury Station. several different real ales on there.
An hourly service goes from Huddersfield to Wakefield Kirkgate and near theire is the Fernandes Brewery. This is on the opposite side of Kirkgate to the railway station a bit nearer the town centre. You can go under some subways across a roundabout to get there.

Sycamore at Wooldale (various), a mile or so away, is too.

Thanks for ALL you suggestions. We may have to spend an extra couple of nights to try them all properly. It's a difficult job, but someone has to do it.
thanks all
