I managed this time to try the Old Peculier at £5.50 a pint (possibly to my detriment). Other offerings such as the Craven Bitter, Lamb Brewing's Bitter and Theakston Best were a pound cheaper. Not sure whether the food was as unusual as last year although the local Herdwick lamb chops were tasty (albeit £26.95).

Super C16th pub with excellent food (cherry and duck leg confit doughnut followed by a pork belly cassoulet) and equally fine beer. I started with a pint of Dark Horse Hetton Pale Ale which was very good indeed. Further pints with unremembered names followed (might have been the same brewery's Craven Bitter and a Boltmaker). I was itching to try the Theakston Old Peculier (from the wood) but the better part of valour was discretion.

Nice to stop here if out on a walk, ride, drive through the valley or staying at Masons Campsite just down the road as we were. It's a very interesting pub inside and out with lots of nooks and crannies and bits of interest. The front left bar is a cosy little room with old pub games - some playable and some not - with Ring the Bull and Bagatelle. We were here on a very nice early autumn day, sitting outside enjoying the last of the sun, but it would be nice to see the pub when the weather closes in and all the fires are lit. I'll bet it's nice then too.

The beers were all good, but at quite touristy prices and the Old Peculier kind of took the p*ss a bit bit at £4.40 a pint (although in very good nick). Yes I know it was "from the wood", blah, blah, blah, but I can get it from the wood in a pub local to me (200 miles away) at £3.60. Masham is only just down the road!!

Customer service from the young girl was a bit poor, with barely a hello and a smile and it did seem like a bit of a youth club at times with lots of young people, who weren't working, but probably did work there at differing times of the week.

That said - nice pub and will be back in the dale again soon.

This was our first stop on a 10 pub crawl of North Yorkshire. It feels like a remote outpost, being situated in the Yorkshire Dales overlooking moorland. Amazingly, they had 8 ales and 3 ciders - Dark Horse Hetton Pale & Chuck Barn Bitter, Thwaites Original, Theakston Old Peculier, Wharfedale Blonde, Moorhouses Blond Witch & Black Witch & Saltaire Raspberry Blonde plus Ty Gwyn, Welsh Scrumpy (possibly Gwynt y Ddraig) & Cornish Orchards Pear Cider. The building itself has a number of different rooms to drink in. It's a cosy haven for walkers, cyclists and climbers. Food is obviously important. The only drawback here is the price. With its location and good drinks selection, this pub just about made our pub of the day. It was all downhill from here!

Visited this pub at the weekend, what a fab pub !! Lovely location, serving great beer. There was Moorehouse Blonde Witch and Hetton IPA, plus at least 2 more... I sampled a pint of the Hetton IPA and it was really good !! There was a real fire and it was a dog friendly pub.... this is what a local country pub should be and makes you feel proud to be a Yorkshireman !!
