A short stroll from Hornbeam Park train station, Rooster’s Taproom offers a mix of sixteen beers across both cask and keg, served fresh from the brewery, which is situated the other side of a large viewing window. Open five days a week, the taproom also serves a wide range of ciders, wines, gins (and other spirits), soft drinks, as well as tea and coffee. Takeout beers, canned onsite, are also available, along with a selection of gifts and merchandise.
The taproom is dog-friendly and welcomes well-behaved children until 7pm. The bar also benefits from a large, south-facing beer garden that sits alongside the Leeds – Harrogate – York train line and is a bona fide sun-trap on the right day. Above the taproom, next to the barrel store, lies a designated bar for private parties and events.
