No member of staff at the Barum Top admitting to knowing where a good pub was in Halifax, we were left to our own devices. Eventually we staggered across the Three Pigeons once more, and discovered that the Pump Room was but a stones throw away. Oh how we laughed at the irony. The pub itself is a great local consisting of two bars in two rooms and a good range of real ales. Eddie and I plumped for Saltaire Yorkshire Pale (3.8%) a light crisp beer that nursed our flagging palate. We were soon joined by Don Juan Ricardo-pictred above. Then it was time to take advantage of local knowledge for the quickest way back to our coach pick up. Just time for a chip muffin before heading back home.
