Fact - now known as Gundog. Previously known as 'Rose and Crown' and 'Cooper's Arms'. 

Ancient inn, remodelled in 1904 to designs by W.H.D.Horsfall, and now Halifax’s only example of a substantially-surviving Edwardian interior. Four rooms with elaborate ceilings and much of their original fitted seating lead off a central drinking lobby that features an ornate staircase. The layout has been partly opened-out and a modern stage raised above seating in one of the back rooms, but the former dining room at front-right is intact, with oak-panelling and good leaded windows depicting sporting scenes. Statutorily listed in 1995 following a successful application by CAMRA.
