A walking guide to Horbury’s extraORDinary pubs and bars…

For a village of its size, Horbury is blessed with a plethora of pubs, bars, cafes, and restaurants that both make it one of the most popular places to live in Wakefield and brings people in from the surrounding area to put their best foot forward and take in as many of the hostelries as possible.

But where to start?

Which pubs do food?

Where has a beer garden?

Where can I get real ale and craft beer?

Who will welcome our dog with tasty treats?

These are all questions that any explorer of Horbury may ask and with 16 pubs and bars around Horbury and Horbury Bridge, that’s a lot of Googling. So, the drinking establishments of Horbury have joined forces and created The Horbury Serving Map to take your pub trail to a whole new level!

Your guide to where to go for a drink in Horbury

Fail to prepare and you prepare to fail – you can now put your best foot forward with a handy guide to where all the pubs are and what they offer. The Horbury Serving Map includes:

  • A map showing the pubs and bars around Horbury and Horbury Bridge
  • Listings showing address details
  • Descriptions provided by each participating pub to give you a flavour of what they offer
  • Pub symbols showing what’s on offer at each participating venue, from cocktails to parking, beer gardens to live music, and the common things you might look for in a pub.

Inspired by great walking maps, it folds up neatly to fit in your pocket and is essential kit for your next exploration of these fantastic hubs of the community.

How to get yours…

Thank you to everyone involved in putting this together

The creation of this map is a brilliant testimony to the local businesses who have come together to create this guide, providing their details, and contributing to the cost. We’re not competitors, we’re a community and that’s part of what makes the pub scene in Horbury, and the village itself, so special.

A big thank you as well to everyone who entered our Horbury photo competition, we loved looking through your pictures. Well done to Steven Holmes who took the winning photo and is featured in pride and place on the front of the map. Here it is in full.
