Oxenhope Social ClubParkside Social Club, Haworth: This former Royal British Legion Club always offers two cask ales. Alongside the regular Goose Eye Barm Pot is a changing guest ale from a local brewery. Bingley Brewery’s Sesson IPA on a recent visit was found to be in excellent condition.

Oxenhope Social Club (pictured): What a gem. This club has a fascinating history as its alternative name alludes to i.e. The Idiot Hut. Basically a former Methodist Chapel that was purchased and then dismantled before transporting across the moors by horse and cart from East Lancashire and then rebuilt in its present village centre location! A very friendly club that is keen on its cask ale. They currently serve a good pint of Tetley Cask Bitter and are about to go through a substantial internal refit that is likely to result in an additional guest cask ale being added.
