There’s not too many places to choose from in the town centre, but this place stands out. Firstly its design, with a Tudor style front looks out of place in a typical Yorkshire town built out of giant stone bricks. Secondly the inside looks as old as the outside, with one open L-shaped room with wooden beams holding up the floor above. These are hard to see as pump clips adorn every part of them, proving this place is a real ale drinkers dream. The emphasis is on a changing selection of ales and dominate the length of the bar, so there is no problem in choice even if one or two run out. Lager is available but again highly regarded continental brews are the choice as well as Amstel. There’s two fireplaces in the walls, one with a wood burner, although it was too warm on the day for it to be used so I can’t say if it is furnishing or functional.
****UPDATE**** Last visited in 2015, but I have been told since that the pub has now gone basic and the superb ale choice has been significantly reduced.
