Welcome to The Works

Here at The Works, our large range of traditional real ales and lovingly made, home cooked food come first. To see just how much care we take preparing these for you, take a good look at the 'What we do' section. Set in a beautifully converted coach-works, you'll find a simple bar area downstairs and a large events hall upstairs. To read about all about our events and what we can do for you, just read the ' Our Events' pages. If you've read enough and want to see how we do things at The Works, click on the 'Take a Peek' link. If there's anything you can't find on here, just click on the 'Contact us' page or scroll to the bottom to find all that useful stuff, like numbers and email addresses.

Latest Events

Our Recent Recognition

This is the part where we get to boast about all the recognition we've received due to our hardwork and commitment.



We are really proud to support the campaign for real ale. We were voted by them and the English Heritage as nationally the best conversion to pub use in the 2006 UK Pub Design Awards.
They asked us who our designer was - the only answer we could give was...Ebay!


Environmental Health

The nice man from Environmental Health comes round every 18 months to look at what we do and how we do it.
He's given us 5 stars! Again!
This is for our food and beer service.
It's basically saying that we like things to be clean, safe, neat and tidy.


Best Bar None Award

This is the only year we entered for this award and we won The Best Pub category for the whole of Calderdale.
It's basically run by the fire, police and trading standards people, and means that we are a very safe place for you to come and enjoy your beer.


Good Pub Guide

We're really pleased to have been included in every Good Beer Guide since 2007. The first publication since we opened.
We really do care about our beer and it's nice that other people see that too.
Our motto is "If you like our beer...tell others. If you don't...tell us!"
