Welcome to the website of the Olde Tavern pub in Pontefract.


Inside you will find details about our wide range of available food and drink as well as information on forthcoming events and entertainment evenings.


The Olde tavern pub was formerly known as the fox for many years until 2012 when it was bought from enterprise inns and converted into a free house, this has allowed the Olde tavern to stock a more customer pleasing range of real ales and lagers whilst having the happy effect of bringing down prices and making the Olde tavern one of the more wallet friendly pubs in the Pontefract area.

This along with its pleasant and relaxed atmosphere, big screen television showing the major sporting events and fresh food served daily in its 90 seat restaurant resulted in the Olde tavern Pontefract being voted as the Pontefract and district pub of the year for 2012 by the Wakefield express newspapers group as well as being a runner up in the overall competition for the entire Wakefield region.
