The Mother Shipton Inn is much more traditional than the Half Moon on the other side of the bridge and was possibly the busier of the two when we visited. Service was swift though with staff noticeably willing to find something to do. Both the Timothy Taylor Landlord and the Theakston's Best were in excellent condition (didn't try the Hobgoblin Gold or the John Smith's).

Interesting little pub a little out of town so pretty quiet when I went there.
Only one beer worth drinking when I was there (Thwaites Wainwright), but it was in good condition.

Bit expensive, but suppose given it good position I should expect the price's had Theakston and Wainwrights on when in today and was good quality .

Its a lovely Pub but why change the name? Food was plain but very well cooked when we went and very very good value. Recommended.

My second call on my Usual Suspects trail, and now called The Dropping Well is a quaint old pub, with Theakston's Best and Old Peculiar as regulars, with the occasional decent guest ales such as Deuchars or Hopback Summer Lightning. Sadly on my first visit the Summer Lightning went off, and so had the Best, so I was saddled with Old Peculiar, which isn't my favourite tipple, but a good pint nontheless. Service is usually pleasant but perfunctory, and I have yet to be tempted to eat there, though I look at the dishes on offer and wonder if they are as goods as they sound. Too many pubs want to serve food that is covered in a 'jus' of some description, when I'd be happy to settle for gravy instead. After that I move back over the bridge to walk along Waterside to The Mitre.
