See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Just yards from the A61, lies this somewhat hidden genuine free house, themed to suit its location by the closed branch of the Aire and Calder and with memorabilia of the original Oakwell brewery. The last cask of their famous Barnsley Bitter was consumed here in 1977. Lively men's and women's pool and darts are successfully represented in local leagues. A concert room, available for hire, also hosts occasional live folk music. Three regularly changing beers are always from Local micro breweries. Food is served afternoons in the bar or small restaurant area. Warming coal fire will keep you in here as well as the beer and great food. Real Ales were removed in January 2019.
