The Silver King, Ossett

All the hallmarks of the Ossett Brewery Pub Co. brand - the ornate bar, the trademark arch, the quality furnishings and tasteful decor - are much in evidence at this new flagship pub.

The Silver King offers drinkers and diners a traditional but stylish environment in which to enjoy the company's award-winning ale and excellent cuisine. The pub is bandit and TV-free and the little background music there is doesn't manage to spoil the relaxed ambiance.

Two distinct drinking areas make up the front rooms of the pub whilst the restaurant (or bistro) is in two rooms to the rear, with the old wash house conversion a particularly attractive place in which to eat. Daytime and evening menus are available and booking is recommended for the more popular nights of the week.

The place oozes quality craftsmanship throughout and has the real feel of a country inn where wooden and flagged flooring will allow for hiking boots and wet dogs in the very inclusive bar. A collection of old waiting-room style wall clocks is a particular favourite feature of mine and an old piano could lead to some rather interesting evenings!

The bar serves eight hand-pulled real ales with Ossett, Riverhead and Fernandes featuring prominently, as you would expect, alongside a Fullers (usually London Pride) and rotating guests.

To the rear a newly created furnished terrace can be accessed from the restaurant whilst a designated covered area for smokers is available by the back door. The car park can accommodate up to a dozen vehicles with a little thought but it is rather narrow so the street maybe a better bet.

More details can be found on the brewery's website or contact manageress Dawn Brook direct on 01924 273516. (map)

Hello - I just have a couple of things to say.....

1) You must be too wasted at all the beer festivals to get back here to update!! Where you gone to?

2) In your little beer festival widget, the cellar bar batley map link seems to point to somewhere in America!!

Come back soon

Thanks Fox, I hadn't put enough of the address in by the look, but it's fixed now. Too much family recently but normal service resuming at Crimble next week plus a new pub profile.
Hi Mick - yes been up a few times and hoping to get in and try the food soon. The new chef there is apparently knocking out some wonderful stuff. Get up for the 'wednesday club' - every week 5-7.

What an excellent looking pub! I'm well overdue a trip up to this neck of the woods, this time last year I was a frequent visitor to nearby Dewsbury but only ever made it as far as the West Riding Refreshment Rooms.

Beer excellent as always. Love the "makeover" , beautiful, classy job.
But could you include some comfy leather chairs so the girls get comfy and want to stay for more than just one swift drink, then we dont have to get up and go where its "comfy" but the beer is ****.
