In a recent trip to the canal side town of Hebden Bridge, we stumbled in to Stubbing Wharf Inn. About 10-15 minutes walk along the tow path from the main shopping street, we found this traditional little ivy covered pub and wandered in for a pint.

We were pleased to see a generous array of guest beers including Ossett Excelsior, Theakston Old Peculiar and Saltaire Blonde. This was also a fine selection of permanent beers: Timothy Taylors Landlord, Black Sheep's Best Bitter and even Golden Pippin from Copper Dragon. The guest beers rotate regularly, along with a selection of farmhouse ciders.

Perhaps the nicest touch was the 'Malt of the Month' and the featured whiskey when we went in was Glengrant, described as "delicate apple and fresh vanilla notes with a hazelnut finish".

Although it was a little crowded, the service was prompt and the beer was excellent. Unfortunately, on this occasion we didn't have time to sample some of the delicious-looking food menu, which included black pudding and bacon salad with a balsamic dressing and a number of roast meats and a nut roast for vegetarians.
