Bruce Arms, Ripon

Seemed to be a more gastro-style menu than the pub opposite (where we went next) but there were a few people just drinking including us (although we did sit outside in the area next to the car park/road). I had a pint of Timothy Taylor Landlord which was good although choice was limited to 2 ales as far as I recall. I understand that both village pubs are in the same ownership and, if they are, then the owners are clearly trying to provide a different offering in each pub.

Royal Oak, Ripon

Smartly decorated pub which looked the nicest of the ones we saw in the city centre and it was popular on Saturday afternoon (race day but the meeting had already started). Big enough to accommodate drinkers and diners alike. After a couple of evenings enjoying the beers of the Masham breweries, it was nice to find that this is a Timothy Taylor house and the Ram Tam was in great condition. I can see why the last reviewer is/was a regular visitor.

The Water Rat, Ripon

Nice views over the river to the cathedral but pub does look a bit shabby. Theakston's Best, Adnams Broadside and Rudgate's Viking and Jorvik were on sale - I tried the two Rudgate beers which were both decent enough but not as good as the beers in Masham. From looking at some other pubs in Ripon, we probably didn't do too badly here though.
