The Sun Inn, Dent

I feel sorry for this place. It's as if the owners just don't the potential of their own pub. As the only pub in Dent with a beer garden you'd think they would make the most of it. No - expect a car park beer garden with weeds every where and napkins and straws trodden into the gravel. A bit of gardening and care and it would be great. As for the beer - they're almost there. On my recent visit the barman asked what kind of beer I liked and suggested Rhatas from Whitby - offering samples just in case. Beer tasted of vinegar but happily changed for another beer which tasted less like vinegar (still there!). As for the pub itself, it is very traditional with open fires. The food looked ok and was about 2-3 cheaper than across the road at the George and Dragon. In conclusion, a pub which looks fantastic but still needs work on. So close but so far, far away! 6/10

The White Lion, Cray

Stayed here with my Dad for a few days hiking in the local area. We were in the small barn opposite the pub, next to the stream. Good location - with plenty of walks available from the pub such as Bucken Pike, Bucken, Starbotton and Hubberholme. The pub itself is very traditional with stone floors and farming equipment hanging on the walls. Beer range included Timothy Taylors (Keighley) and Copper Dragon (Skipton). Food was very good - I especially recommend the belly pork and black pudding. Very friendly staff. My only improvement would be for them to include a guest beer or one of the more local breweries (Dent, Yorkshire Dales, Wensleydale etc). 8/10

The George And Dragon Hotel, Dent

I have visited this pub many times over the past year and have enjoyed each time. The beer is always in excellent condition and there is a wide selection of Dent brewery beers plus a guest and cider on hand pull. Food is very good (although better at dinnertime) and reasonably priced. My only criticism is that the interior is not as 'pubby' as the Sun Inn opposite - get the Dent brewery back in the Sun Inn and it'd be great! Aviator and Ramsbottom beers are my favorites. 7/10
