Details

The Wharfside is located close to Wakefield Waterfront, just 10 minute walk from The Hepworth Wakefield.

The pub has a traditional exterior and patio seating area.

The interior was extensively refurbished in 2010 to provide a comfortable and modern atmosphere. Large French doors open out from the main bar onto a small grassed area at the front of the building and live music nights are held on a regular basis.

Black Sheep ale is on tap throughout the year as well as guest ales and food is freshly prepared to order.

Diners can also use the more formal dining area upstairs, which can also be booked for larger parties or as a function room.
