Last weekend another new pub opened on the Huddersfield Real Ale circuit. This one is a bit out of Town, but having called round yesterday can confirm it is well worth the trip. It is the Yeaton Cask on Town Rd at Kirkheaton.

The pub used to be the Junction but has been totally transformed from its previous life into a light and airy place, with walls taken back to their original stone, new fireplaces added, and a floor which is a mixture of stone tiles and wood. The decor is modern and gives the place a clean and welcoming feel, and is complemented by a new bar.

It is owned and run by Jane Robson and her partner Steve, who deserve much credit for spending time and money to achieve their dream. Jane is well known in local pub circles, I recall her from the Oddfellows in Elland in pre Ossett days and she has brought her experience to the bar here as well. The pub offers 3 regular beers, Taylors 'Landlord' ,and Hawkshead 'Red',and a 3.8% house beer brewed specially for the pub by an unknown brewery (Jane declined to say who brews it but it is worth a try). In addition there are 4 changing guests. On our visit, there were beers from Goose Eye, Peerless, and a wheat beer from Springhead, along with a mild from Bank Top, so beers for all tastes. Along with a couple of decent lagers which I forgot to write down.

All in all, a place well worth hunting out, I am sure you will not be disappointed. The prices were sensible and the opening hours as well, (all day Wednesday to Sunday, but 4pm opening Monday and Tuesday). Food is not available yet but when the place has become more established Jane says that she will be sorting the kitchen side out as well.
