Dewsbury pub-goers turned out in exceptional numbers to pack the newly refurbished Old Turk on Wellington Road last night. This once-popular inn, also known as The Glue Pot to many no doubt, is situated conveniently between the town's bus and train stations.
The locally-based Beerhouses family chain, run by Mike Field (below) and Sarah Barnes, has done a nice job in bringing the pub back to life without compromising it's character. The layout has remained unaltered with the long 'L-shaped' bar and corner stage area the most obvious features.
Three real ales were available on hand pump for the opening night including beers from Summer Wine and Saltaire breweries. The Old Turk will only open at weekends initially so check the pub's Facebook page before setting out. We wish Mike, Sarah and their team all the best with this latest adventure.
