After dining at Angelo's Trattoria in East Rainton (until very recently the Old Ships Inn but never made it onto the site) and having a very pleasant visit to the Three Horseshoes in Leamside (another one I have requested to be added), I concluded my Friday night's drinking in the Ale Taster. I last tried a visit in January, 2013 when it was closed. This time it was open. A decent enough local pub with seating situated around the bar and a smaller room at the side. Service was friendly. But the ales were nothing out of the ordinary - Sharp's Doom Bar, Wells Bombardier, Timothy Taylor Landlord, Purity Pure Gold, Anarchy Blonde Star & Woodforde's Reedlighter. I went for the latter. But all of the ales were fairly similar style and not really my cup of tea.

My new local and certainly the best pub in Low Fell. Reasonably priced and good selection (Strongarm ale particularly good). Also a dog friendly pub (not unusual to see many canine regulars, even on a Friday night !).

Was disappointed to find this pub closed on my Wednesday visit. A notice said it had been closed for health and safety issues. Not sure when I'll be able to pay a return visit.

Great old pub, the way pubs used to be and the way pubs should still be.
Fantastic range of ales and real cider, 14 hand pulls on last night, ended up with one hell of a hangover this morning.
Cant wait to go back.
A gem of a pub, 5 star from me

Grand pub worth a visit with a good choice of beers and nice atmosphere. Two televisions to watch sport. Friendly staff.
