Dutch Dave

It is with great sadness that we hear of the passing of David Barnsdale. Affectionately known as Dutch Dave, the 54 year old from Leeds was a regular visitor to the pubs of Huddersfield and oftentimes contributor to 'a swift one'.
 
With trademark orange jacket, his unwavering motor-mouth enthusiasm for real ale was infectious and made for a colourful character in more ways than one. We shall miss him.

Had many a happy discussion over the use of sparklers. Saturdays wont be the same. Rip

Surely you exaggerate!

I never new Dutch Dave's name but served him many times at the Rat and also chatted on the right side of the bar. Sad news.
