They were turning people away last Friday, thank goodness we had pre-booked. Our table was just to the left as you walk in so unfortunately we couldn't see much of the rest of the pub with no wandering about allowed. The Black Sheep was drinking very well indeed and the service was faultless.

Nice hotel, good food, and a proper bar attached to the side for the drinkers. A couple from Black Sheep on - including Baa Baa.

Juke Box appealing to the younger members of society. Until I get on it and load it up with Iggy Pop.

Nice place.

While staying in the village for the weekend, we visited here first off late on the Friday night and it was packed, mainly with youngsters who looked like they were getting tanked up before going on somewhere else.

The atmosphere on this visit wasn’t the best with a lot of the locals pretty drunk and loud.

Our second visit was on the Sunday evening when it was a lot quieter and more relaxed. We got the barman to put the boxing on which went down well with a few of the locals

4 ales on, Black Sheep Best Bitter, Tetley's Cask, North Yorkshire’s Mayhem plus one more which I didn’t get the name of. My pints of Tetley's Cask and Mayhem were all well kept and served.

The Pickwick bar has low wooden beams and is done out in a country style, apparently throughout this bar and the hotel bar (where the food is served) are 10 pieces carved by the distinctive Robert 'Mouseman' Thompson. On the Sunday evening we stayed until closing time (11am), the barman was extremely friendly and helpful and most of the locals were alright. A very different pub to the Royal Oak, maybe not as welcoming but this is more of a locals pub than the Royal Oak.

Popped back into Helmsley today after the steam fair at Pickering and the bar is called the Pickwick Bar (?) and has another door off the main street without traipsing through the hotel bit.

Well appointed North country hotel in Helmsley Market Place. A multiroom layout ,there is a more traditional bar reached via a snug like room to the left on entering and a dining room to the right also with a bar counter. Drinking only is frowned upon in the dining room as the profusion of computer generated A4 notices will confirm. There is also a large function room to the rear. Usual keg offering plus Black Sheep bitter from the whizzy new pump plus Tetley cask and Feathers a very drinkable porter / stout brewed for the hotel by the Yorkshire Dales Brewing Co, possibly a detuned version of their Yorkshire Penny stout. The rooms are generally small and cosy, tastefully decorated although the tartan carpet clashes a bit. The food was pretty good and the service mostly sharp and efficient although the disappearing bar staff trick can be witnessed here. Locally made Mouseman and Beaver furniture, country prints and a relatively quiet atmosphere much in keeping with Helmsley itself.
