The place to go for a lazy afternoon, pub quiz or last call
You can tell us more about Hebden Bridge.
- The Fox and Goose in Hebden Bridge is absolute great - very good bear, a lovely atmosphere and live music by locals on wednesday night, very good indeed!
- Quite a good list below there. I would just like to add The Greenwoods (I've no idea of the owners now, the seem to change quite often..), Hole in The Wall. Alberts karaoke on thursdays is cool.
- A great pub with great food - a million miles away from how it used to be. One of the safest and best places to go in town.
- Moyles (formerly Square 1), on New Road opposite the marina, is contemporary, classy and cool. I'm assured that the decor is supposed to look half-finished in places. The Shoulder of Mutton on Bridge Gate is a slightly more rustic alternative but attracts a young (20s-30s) crowd. Nelson's Wine Bar is downstairs in a cellar on Crown Street next to the Oasis off-licence - it's gay-run and tolerant but there's plenty of straight people who go there too - all ages and quite liberal/arty. No draught beers though - all bottles but a Lindeboom is about a pint and costs about the same. The White Lion on Bridge Gate is the oldest building in town and is quite rustic while not turning into an old-man's pub - also does nice food but they stop serving bang on time and kick you out so it's best to move on by 10pm. The Fox and Goose at the bottom of Heptonstall Road is a bit of an old-man spot with lots of CAMRA types but if you're a real-ale lover it's got a decent selection. The Albert on Albert Street has a nice pool room and sometimes has a lock-in so it fills up around 10pm, but it really needs redecorating. There's also The Inn on the Bridge, The Railway, The Swan, and I'm sure I'm forgetting others but they're sometimes a bit rough and not that cool.
- The Shoulder of Mutton (bottom Shoulder) is not a dirt hole. It is probably one of the most popular pubs in the town. It was taken over 2.5 years ago (when the 'Shoulder was a dirt hole) and turned around. No more louts - dress code and zero tolerance is now the order of the day. It's a great place to come and socialise or have a meal with the family. No pool, no Sky. Great food 7 days a week. Best beer in town! I know - it's my pub (but ask anyone else)! Maybe you should visit!
- Shoulder Of Mutton
- Regarding the Shoulder of Mutton comment 'the shoulder of mutton in the town centre is a dirt-hole'. I think you will find this observation is grossly out of date. The Shoulder used to be an unsavoury place indeed, but you will find that over the last 2.5 years since I took on the license, it has transformed into a warm, friendly family pub, serving food 7 days per week that is open to all (legal) ages. We have had zero trouble in our time here, activly support the pubwatch scheme and have a zero tolerance policy (sorry - you can't even wear baseball caps inside!). You can find all sorts of people in here now, from the council, people from the soaps to the most important of them all, the locals, who come back day after day, and nobody has said anything bad about how it is - only how it used to be. Times change, and so do pubs. If you don't believe, try it for yourself!
- Correction - the Shoulder of Mutton used to be a dirt hole until about two years ago, its now one of the nicest pubs in Hebden Bridge serving a mixed friendly crowd and does good food.
- Please note - re you Shoulder of Mutton comment. This pub was taken over in April 2003 by Cath Burnett, the now licensee. It has undergone a huge transformation in both look and clientele. Far from a dirt hole, it is now a great place to eat and socialise - no jukebox, no pool table, jazz and other chilled music, leather sofas and fab food (the giant sunday roasts are a treat!). Someone should have done this 30 years ago! Things really DO change....
- The Fox and Goose in Hebden Bridge has NOT closed. I am the owner and would be grateful if you could remove this statement. The sausages on the bar on Sunday are not FREE- there is an honesty tin placed on the bar for contributions.
- Thought you might like an update about the Fox and Goose in Hebden Bridge, as you seem to be under a few illusions. It has not shut down far from it. There will be a change of ownership as from the 23rd April 2003 ( I ought to know- I'm the new owner) and all will continue as previously with no music or games machines, just loads fo decent beer. Oh, and the sausages on Sundays are NOT free. There is a tin on the bar into which decent midned folk place a donation- it's a business, not a charity!
- The Stubbing Wharf Hotel now has a Curry night fortnightly on Sunday evenings. It's all done by a local Indian restaurant. All you can eat for £6.95.
- Fox and Goose Inn has NOT closed down. The website no longer exists, though.
- Fox & Goose is NOT shut! Nutclough is expensive with miserable-faced landlord, inexolicably popular with lesbian and middle-aged-male-loner crowds
- Fox & Goose is now closed down
- A whole host, some lacking atmosphere such as the new open plan pine thing next to spar, and some with a cosmopolitan feel that would be more in place in London or Milan than a Yorkshire backwater (Nelsons wine bar, a great mixed gay/straight crowd with a fantastic array of wines and European beers).

The shoulder of mutton
- Try the "Stubbing Wharf" on the canal - I think that's the name. Luvly grub and beer.
- The Fox and Goose, Heptonstall Road, for more real ale than your throat can cope with. Also, on Sunday lunchtimes, free SAUSAGES! Every week, there are different types.
It's even go a website : www.texta.demon.co.uk/fg/foxfront.htm
