The Spearmint Ostriches is one of the top rated pubs on the travel website – despite the exact location being kept a secret.

The garden shed pub comes complete with bar, football and TV memorabilia – even a ‘watch live football here’ banner fastened to the fence outside.

And It has been voted the fourth best nightlife venue in the town, even though it is in a back garden and not open to the general public.

The pub, which appears to have been filled with a lot of football and Leeds United shirts, has been described as the “best venue in Donny.”

The backyard boozer is made up of a large garden shed and decking area, but the bar appears to be generously stocked with a wide selection of drinks.

Inside there is an array of lagers, spirits and bar snacks as well as traditional beer mats and pumps – but it is not clear if they are functional.

There is also a huge TV screen to watch the football on, as well as a heated outdoor area for visitors to enjoy the limited British sunshine.

One wall is decked out in memorabilia from hit TV show Peaky Blinders.

A Sky Sports and BT Sports poster sits outside, telling visitors that they can watch the live football from the venue.
