I would like to say that we stumbled upon the Star but it's reputation had gone before it. It is one of the best pubs in town. The bar is open plan and the selection of local beers is good. The helpful landlord pointed out that Mallinsons were well represented so I went for a pint of Bramling Cross whilst my mate Bob decided to hit the floor running with a pint of Transpennine.
The Bramling Cross is a pale hoppy beer which could have easily become a session beer if we had had more time!
Transpennine, at 6% abv, is definitely not a session beer but Bob enjoyed it and seemed ready for another in what seemed like the blink of an eye.
When it came to leaving I had the feeling that it would not be long until I returned to this lovely pub. If you are in Huddersfield make a point of visiting. You will not be disappointed.
