What is the Doghouse?

The Doghouse is the brain child of the 212 Cafe & Bar's - J.Cub and Stu.

The Doghouse is a place where good food, music and drink come together in a friendly and relaxed environment. The brainchild of long time local characters J.Cub and Stu, the getaway takes its name from the fact the owners spend so much time together they are often in the doghouse with their other halves.

Boasting a quality selection of good, honest and simple food, with interesting beers, wines and spirits, The Doghouse is a place to kick back to the sounds of local resident DJs. It also houses Paula’s Record Store, which is named after the previous owner’s hair salon. Her original sign still hangs in the bar, while the store is a place to dig through a carefully curated selection of vinyl old and new.

The Doghouse is also an art space, the location for a weekly live broadcast on KMAH Radio with secret special guests and a meeting place for friends old and new to enjoy good food, good drink and good times. Once you pop in, you won’t want to leave….

The Bar

  • From the Keg
    In 2016, UNESCO added Belgian beer culture to their list of the intangible cultural heritages of humanity, such is the value of a Flemmish brew. As such we proudly offer the delights of Vedett and have Extra Blond Larger and Extraordinary IPA as permanent features on the bar. Next to that, we have Amstel as our house pour from The Netherlands, and proper cider from Symonds in Hertfordshire. And of course, our line-up wouldn’t be complete without a special something from Munchen, and Spatan fills that gap. The last in our international line up comes from Chicago’s Goose Island BEER Co.
  • Cask Ales
    We have three cask lines that offer a fresh and rotating selections of beers including ales from Stod Fold in Halifax, Abbeydale in Sheffield and Saltaire in Bradford.
  • In the Cooler
    The cooler is the home to some familiar brands sourced from around the world. We’ve stocked it with crisp, thirst quenching beers from Barcelona, Mexico, the UK and USA, and we also stock an old skool favourite in Hooch, which comes in both Lemon and Passion Fruit & Mango flavours. On top of this, we’ve got a considered selection of craft cans available from Bad Co, Abbeydale and Northern Monk amongst others, and we also stock Becks Blue, and various other tasty soft drinks for none drinkers and designated drivers.
  • The Back Bar
    We’re proud of our fully stocked back bar, which has all the usual suspects plus a great and ever growing selection of gins and rums, both locally sourced and from around the world. Enjoy them neat, on the rocks of with a wide selection of interesting Fever Tree mixers.
  • Wine
    We’ve a selection of house red, white and blush wines including Merlot, Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio. We’ve also a sparkling Italian Prosecco for those special of occasions (aka Friday!) and all are available by the glass, though by the bottle is always better!
  • Cocktails
    Our cocktail menu will soon grow and evolve, but we’re proud to offer an already locally famous Bloody Mary: on a Sunday, you can pick these up 2-4-1 when you need a tasty pick me up after the night before.
  • Teas & Coffees
    However you take your coffee, we’ve got you: latte, cappuccino, flat white, or a straight shot of espresso and plenty in between are all available with our fine Arabica beans. We also make a mean hot chocolate, and you can spice any of the above up with a shot of Arron Gold. And of course, being in the heart of Yorkshire, we love a good brew, and so will you with our choice of Harrogate Tea and wide range of Twining’s flavoured and herbal teas.
  • Sweet Treats
    To start with, we’ve got some delicious Triple Chocolate or Salted Caramel Brownies for you to get stuck into, with more special guests to be added soon.
  • Vegetarian Samosa
    Served with sweet chilli jam.
  • Spinach & Chick Pea Rolls
    Served with sweet chilli jam.
  • Scotch Eggs
    All our Scotch Eggs are home made using locally sourced pork meat and served with hot sriracha sauce. Choose from Classic, Black Pudding, Jalapeno & Sweet Chilli Jam or ask at the bar for any specials.
  • Pork Pies served with piccalilli
    Chose from a selection of Traditional, Black Pudding, Chorizo or Apple flavoured pies.

Paula's Pick of the Week
Soulfuricacid EP

The NicetraxUK label welcomes another three artists to get involved for the Soulfuricacid EP, bringing a range of straight up house gear to the table for the funkiest spinners to get busy with. Leeds based producer J Cub follows up appearances on Eclectic Avenue and Saints & Sonnets with the woozy, trumpet soaked grooves of “Mestizo”. UK cheeky house mainstay Lil Mark steps up with another quintessential shuffler in the form of “Small Syndrome”, and then Moodymanc adopts his Dubble D alias for a smooth cruising trip through plush synths and warm bass.
