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.
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.
