Following last week's report on the reopening of the Sportsman in Huddersfield we have received the following from Sarah Barnes:
'We are currently in the process of ripping the pub apart although trying to maintain as much of the original features as we can! We have uncovered a fabulous parquet floor in the main bar, and we'll have an open fire in the snug whilst keeping the pool table - as I can't ever remember seeing one in a Huddersfield pub! We're hoping to be open early April and I'll let you know a more definite date nearer the time!!
We'll be having 8 hand pumps - 2 Taylors, Golden Sheep (the new Blacksheep beer), a line devoted to Huddersfield breweries, a stout line and a couple of rotating guest lines. We'll have ten keg beers including fruit and wheat beers and hopefully both Budvars. We do plan to have food but probably not when we first open. Not really the kind of pub for much live music though open-mic nights might be possible.'
Exciting news then and the moment we hear any more we'll let you know.
