user reviews of the Butchers Dog, Driffield

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

We were back in Driffield on Wednesday after an 8 year hiatus. Our first port of call was the Butcher's Dog, a micropub that wouldn't have been here on our last visit. It is now easily the best pub in the town in my opinion. We were glad to get out of the rain into this hostelry. The ale choice was instantly visible - George Wright Plum Porter, Poachers Black Crow Stout, Hop Kettle North Wall, Great Heck Mercy & Great Newsome Harvests Gold. Ciders were listed on a blackboard to the right-hand side of the bar - Seacider Hardcore, Blood Orange, Mango, Bourbon Barrel & Black Cherry, Farmer Jim's Sweet, Copper Top & Farmyard Perry, White Rose Batch #1 & Honey Cider, Snail's Bank Winder & Lilley's Darkcider. There were 4 I hadn't previously had. So, I worked my way through those. The barmaid and customers were all friendly and the atmosphere was convivial. There's a CAMRA discount too, which we discovered on our second round. Great pub.

We drank at this micropub at lunchtime and later on the same day whilst visiting relations. I was surprised to see that it only got a rating of 6.8. What more could you ask for? It is everything a micropub should be. It sells five different styles of beer from five handpumps, all of which were in excellent condition when we visited. There are no pool tables, giant TV screens or piped music, (unlike most of the pubs in Driffield), the only sound being the buzz of people conversing. The staff and regulars were friendly without being intrusive and we really enjoyed it. The only reason I haven't given it ten out of ten is that my pedantic lady wife got hot under the collar by the lack of an apostrophe in 'Butchers'!

Decent adaption of shop into small pub. Pleasant and friendly enough with three ales on in good nic'.

A welcome addition to the town which although quiet on a Sunday lunch had a good range of local beers and ciders from wider afield

An excellent micropub which follows the excellent recipe of snacks, decent range of local beers and no tele. 6 beers on including one brewed on the premises. Marked down slightly as the beers were too warm; we were first in on a Sunday lunch. Very convenient for the railway station.
