Had heard good things about The Slubbers Arms at Hillhouse from various sources so thought I would take a look.
For those who remember the pub in its great days under the legendary Dave Green, not much has changed. The pub is quirky to say the least, not many pubs are wedge shaped, can only think of the Baltic Fleet in Liverpool and here.
This has lots of small rooms off the bar to make it cosy and it has retained much of its character but has benefited from a spruce up. However many of the old bits and pieces are still there and one can have a happy half hour just wandering through the place and looking at things.
There are 4 Taylors beers on the bar and a guest, a Mallinsons on my visit, (my only concern was that I thought £2.50 a bit pricey for a 3.9% beer.) It is open from 12 every day and has a good menu with home cooked food at reasonable prices.
Certainly somewhere to call off should you be on the North side of Huddersfield, or if you fancy walking, its about 15 minutes from the Town Centre. It is also close to the frequent 363/328 bus routes from Town (alight at Hillhouse on Bradford Rd and the pub is 100 yards away).
From what I saw on my visit, another pub that deserves to do well that is just off the usual track.
