Probably the best pub in Otley and easily up there for one of the best I have been in. It has a bare boards feel with a fire place and a darts board. On the bar they had- Timothy Taylor Golden Best, Theakston Best Bitter, Theakston Old Peculier, St Austells Proper Job, Hambletons nightmare Porter, Hambletons Stud Blonde, Timothy Taylor Best Bitter, Timothy Taylor's landlord, Timothy Taylor Knowle Springe, St Austells Tribute, Robinsons dizzy blonde. The barman and barmaid here seem to be the owners and we're both quite friendly, the locals seemed nice and a few brought their dogs. It was a convivial atmosphere when I was in and has been when I have came before. Surely this is a must visit for anyone.

Amazing no one has reported on this pub for 5 years but maybe that's because nothing seems to have changed from the in depth reports previously. Anyway excellent choice of 6 beers from local to far flung and a stunning range of real ciders as well.

Occupying a prominent street corner position on the main road from Leeds into the West Yorkshire market town of Otley is The Junction, a solid looking typical Yorkshire stone built building.

A large single bar features a tiled floor, much wood panelling and a central fireplace. The walls are decorated with some evocative black and white prints of Otley and several enamel brewery posters. The rafters house a bottled beer collection and, on the other side of the fireplace, a collection of farming implements hang down from the dark beams. Comfortable, fixed seating run round the edge of the room with sturdy looking tables helping contribute towards a solid traditional feel to the pub. A smaller snug style drinking area on the left, which was probably once a separate bar, houses a fine pub mirror, featuring bulls horns.

Live guitarists feature on Tuesday evening. A Bank Holiday BBQ was being advertised, with proceeds to the Air Ambulance.

There's 11 handpumps in total, which, on my recent Tuesday afternoon visit, were serving Theakstons Best and Old Peculier, and Taylors Landlord and Best, which are apparently the 4 regular offerings. Guest beers include Deuchars IPA, Jennings Cumberland plus beers from Roosters, Hydes, Everards and Hobgoblin. Guests were priced at between 2.40p and 2.60p - which, for someone used to London beer prices, is very welcome. I noted that there's 50p off these prices on Mondays. Both the Taylors Best and Deuchars IPA ( 2.60p and 2.40p respectively ) were in good form. The pub is a CAMRA Good Beer Guide regular.

Otley seems to have a number of pubs that are worth investigating, unfortunately time and work commitments meant that I only did this one plus The Bay Horse ( which is not yet listed on BITE ). I'd be more than happy to return to them both next time I'm in Otley
