The FlyBoat, Huddersfield

The Flyboat is a little pub behind the student accommodation at Aspley, From its location you would expect it to be crammed with students, however the student population seems to respectfully leave it be.
The pub itself is small and cosy but it can be quite intimidating on first wandering because it is quite a 'local' pub but the regulars and the landlord are very friendly, the pub is part of the Huddersfield Pool League and such possesses a high quality pool table for the very reasonable price of 50p per game.
The pub is decorated with pictures of Huddersfield's varied history which makes for a very interesting slow wander around, pint in hand.

The Flyboat is not considered part of the Huddersfield Ale Scene, partly because of its location and its lack of guest ales, it does however maintain Tetley's Cask Bitter and Mild superbly and a bad pint of either of these in this pub is almost unheard of.
A regular quiz night with a free supper also takes place on a Thursday at 9.50pm.
The pub is open from 5 in the evenings and all day at the weekends and worth a visit if you are that end of town.
