Ossett Brewery has purchased it's eleventh pub in just six years with the addition of The White Horse at Emley. An attractive village inn serving a good range of quality real ale has been sadly lacking in this rural area of Huddersfield for some time, so this news will be greatly appreciated - not least by this local! The pub is expected to relaunch around the middle of July. Further details to follow.
Other news from the brewery concerns an imminent makeover for the upstairs bar at Fernandes in Wakefield whilst an extension is planned for The Tap at Ossett.
