This pub needs little introduction to the real ale drinkers of Kirklees. The Leggers Inn at the canal basin in Dewsbury has been the town’s not-so-well kept secret for over a decade now - and to my eternal shame I’ve not been putting nearly enough time in at this legendary first floor stable conversion, despite working locally and despite the pub’s continued reputation for great choice and quality. The recent enhancement of the extensive outdoor drinking area was the final piece in the jigsaw, ensuring that Leggers is now not only a beer drinker's paradise but also the most attractive place in town to enjoy seriously good ale outdoors as well as in.
So in keeping with the avowed intention of this blog, here is the pub in glorious canovision for those of you who are either unfamiliar with it, or like me, have inexcusably lapsed of late and need a little coaxing back through it’s welcoming doors! (map)
