Decent Pubs for Huddersfield ?

edited March 2012 in General Charlton
Looking for a couple of cleansing pints of real ale and a decent pub lunch.

I've not been up there since a 2-0 win in November 1986 ( Flan and the Curbs ) and, whilst I recall our having an acceptable mince curry and Tetley on the day, I don't think I can find my way back 25 years on. Accordingly, all and any recommendations gratefully received.

    even though i'm a lager drinker and am driving to huddersfield, my real ale mad mate is insisting that we are heading for the train staition. apparantley there are 2 pubs that satisfy his (picky) requirements.

    also remember a place called the slubbers arms from years ago that was a good ale pub.

    I lived in Huddersfield for 3 yeears & can assure you there are many fine pubs in there, especially outside town. If you can get out to the village of Lindley there is a great pub called the Black Bull (drank & ate there a couple of years ago before the game), if 5 mins in a cab to the ground.
    In town its more of a standard fair but real ale are of course on as it is Yorkshire !

    a cab from the black bull to the ground wouldnt be cheap, I also live in Hud and theres a row of pubs in the town centre and a few there are pretty good. Its just round the corner from the train centre, next to the Mcdonalds, the road contains about 6 pubs, half decent real ale and some reasonable food

    Last season we went to the Wetherspoons in the town centre which was actually really good (for a 'Spoons) had a decent selection of lovely Yorkshire ales, and all outrageously cheap compared to the prices we're used to in London.

    Last year the Police we're stopping anyone wearing Charlton colours from entering the main high street in the town centre, but we weren't so were able to slip by and didn't see any trouble at all.

    cant stand the wetherspoons, cherry tree its called. But, I do think that depends on age/taste. The yates/lord wilson (lloyds bar) do real ale sometimes and are better IMO

    I work with a Huddersfield supporter I'll ask and get back to you on here.
    So recommended are Head of Steam and Kings Head - both at the station both real ale.
    The Rat and Ratchett - real ale pub and the best is apparently 'The Grove' a 10 minute walk from the ground.

    Also been advised to avoid 'The Vulcan' like the palgue.

    Thats it.

    Went to Vulcan after game 2 years ago and was fine, but pretty rough.

    If you walk from the station towards the ground, we went in a little pub called the sportsman after the game, nice little boozer that does stew and dumplings for £2 too!

    The reviews are good!

    Excellent boozer, nothing could be changed to improve this place. Visited pre-match for the Huddersfield v Rochdale game this weekend just gone (as a Dale fan).
    Delightful pints of 'Andy Booth's Pale Ale' (Sportsman), 'Indulgence' (Mallinsons), 'Reward' (apologies...I didn't get the brewery name...is it Wold Top..?) Northern Soul music coming from the speakers, Very good and plentiful food. The first time I have rated a pub 10/10 on BITE!
    I'd imagine that this is what my local boozer in heaven would be like :-)

    I think Rickys bar is the strip club, and we went in there and came straight back out, what a dump! Must agree with the Head of Steam at the station for the grub though, very good food!

    Thanks All - much appreciated. I think we'll start at the "Head of Steam" and then take it from there.
  • Options
    My advice - find out where Steve Rann used to go and go can't go wrong.
  • Options
    2 seasons ago, went by train & there are 2 pubs, which are "part of the train station building" . As you come out of the station there is one to your right & one to your left. They were both very good. I think The Head of Steam was the better of the two, a bit museum like, had a games room, with a Space Invaders machine !

    My mate at Uni, suggested a place called the 'Gas Club' which is near the ground, don't know if it's any good! But allows both home and away fans in and supposedly has a decent atmosphere inside.
