The legendary John F Kennedy, with Ted behind the bar since 6th October 1969, is a Dewsbury institution - if it didn't exist you would certainly want to invent it! It remains an island of stability amongst the rat race of refurbishment and closures that seems to go on daily in the rest of town. Might have only a handful of regulars but small groups of strangers are welcome to come and have a chat. Great selection on the jukebox (although broken on our last visit). Within short walking distance of bus and rail stations. Opens at other times for special occasions. Beer pulled via autovac is well-kept and low-priced.
