About the Pub

Known locally as 'The Sett' this two-roomed free house is popular with fishermen and twitchers as it is close to the Anglers Country Park. Can be reached from Wakefield using Nos. 194/5/6 buses (to Hemsworth or Newstead) GBG says: a rural alehouse that is an increasingly rare example of a no frills old fashioned community pub. There is a lively local clientele with many old pitmen and many old tales to be told. Close to Anglers Country Park, Haw Wood and the Transpennine Trail. It is also frequented by birders, walkers, cyclists and bikers.There are benches and a garden for fine weather drinking, with a large car park opposite. Wintersett Lakes Camping & Caravanning is a short walk away. Due to its isolated location it may close early if trade is slow, and the pub is not normally open Tuesday evenings. Pub of the Year 2013 Runner-Up.
