For some stupid reason I'm going to be up in darkest Yorkshire on Saturday, so is there anything worth doing (like, really, a pub that sells decent food and beer) for an hour before the match? Come to that, is there anything worth doing there at any time ever?

Oh yes, although not strictly speaking in Halifax, The Works is a pub in Elland that does decent beer. Market Porter-esque in terms of constantly changing beer. Landlord, I seem to recall, is the house ale. Good for food too.

Probably taxi ride to/from ground (to be honest, whenever I've been I've never really been concentrating on how to get from A to B), but can't imagine it'll be very much.

There's some damn fine pubs in Halifax. Can't remember the names of the top of my head, mind...

Have a mooch round The Piece Hall.

If you have kids with you, Eureka! is good fun.

Admire the view.

That's it.

Edit: Oh, you said pub for an hour. Ignore what I just posted then. There were good pubs in Halifax the last time I was there, but I can't remember any off the top of my head and they've probably all been turned into shitty bars now.

Same probleme for me, I went to a couple of pretty good pubs not far from the ground, one of them was at a junction when you walk from the train station to the ground, excellent choice of ales. Just look for the Camra sign really...

The Shears was good the last time I was there, and one called, I think, The Two Pigeons.

Cracking away trip Halifax, and now with a great big proper covered away terrace.

Before I'd been there, I imagined Halifax to be a bit of a dump, but it's actually a really pleasant surprise: lovely setting and rather charming town.

Halifax is excellent, same as everyone else I haven't been there for a few years, but it's a cracking away trip.
