George and Dragon, Hudswell

Not a lot has changed since my earlier review except that as Tuna says the pub has been judged as Camra National of the year. Beers are consistently good and are always changed for something different when a cask runs out. Ruby Mild from Rudgate is a permanent beer. Other beers are from Yorkshire micro breweries. There is a regular beer festival over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

Stumble Inn, Northallerton

The Stumble Inn is a new micro pub in Northallerton which has been set up in a former tile showroom so has an interesting floor. It is located in a shopping arcade between the Town Hall and the Applegarth car park. It sell up to 6 real ales with usually 2 from Northallerton Brewery and the others from local & regional micro breweries. There tends to be a range from light and traditional bitters to an IPA and a stout or porter. There are around 20 ciders and perries all kept in the cold store. Regular beer & cider festivals are held.

The Dog and Gun, Knayton

Looks like 5 years since last visit. Food is said to be very good, A couple of real ales available including Settle, Blonde as a guest.

15 Jul 2017 10:19

The Wheatsheaf Inn, Borrowby

Still selling 3 real ales including Daleside Bitter & 2 guests. Pub not open weekday or Saturday lunchtimes.

15 Jul 2017 10:15

The Three Stags Heads, Wardlow Mires

Could not agree more with Grandaddave. All beers from Abbeydale were on fine form and the house dark Black Lurcher was excellent. This is a beer drinking pub with no larger taps but a good selection of bottled beers. Even a stag party which called in mainly drank Deception. Old range was fired up even in midsummer. watch out for free range guinea pigs in car park and note opening hours are weekends only

13 Jun 2017 11:19

The Maynard, Grindleford

3 real ales on the bar including Abbeydale Moonshine. Unfortunately all served too warm.

Great view from Restaurant but food expensive and service very slow. Over an hour from ordering to being served.

13 Jun 2017 11:13

The Peacock, Bakewell

Not a lot changed in 2 years. Chatsworth Gold no more than OK.

13 Jun 2017 11:10

Castle Arms Inn, Snape

The Castle Arms is a tied Marstons pub and serves 3 changing real ales from the Marstons extensive range. The highlight on a recent visit was Shipyard Summer Ale. The pub has not changed since being renovated by previous owners some years ago. There are letting bedrooms and a small caravan park. Food is reasonable and similarly priced for the area.

27 May 2017 14:45

The Woodman Inn, Burneston

The Woodman has recently undergone a substantial renovation. There is a pleasant bar area and a separate dining area. At least 2 local real ales are on handpump and on a recent visit were Northallerton Gun Dog and Pennine Pennine Way No Black Sheep or Theakston in evidence. Food was not tried but menu looked reasonable. The pub has its own taxi service.

27 May 2017 14:40

The Halfway House, Edinburgh

Very convenient for a last minute beer before catching a train. $ beers and pub food make this bar worth looking for.

15 May 2017 10:19

The Bow Bar, Edinburgh

Visited while on a brief visit to Edinburgh on Tornado. A varied range of beers brewed in Scotland not seen in North Yorkshire and all new to me. All good apart from one from Born in the Borders.

15 May 2017 10:16

The Three Horseshoes, Leyburn

The pub now has new landlords who also own the Bolton Arms at Redmire and is managed by chef Aaron. There are 5 real ales on handpump in the summer and blue scrumpy will be pleased to hear that this includes Wensleydale Semerwater which is rapidly becoming the beer of the dales. Gun Dog now brewed by Northallerton Brewery is also back. The is a changing guest beer from a North Yorkshire brewery.
Blue scrumpy will also be pleased to hear there is background music. Food available every day lunch time and evening and pub is open all day. Visit the nearby candle factory in the old mill and waterfall.

13 May 2017 14:07

Tithe Bar, Northallerton

There has been yet another refurbishment and is now renamed as the Tithe. Mainly a repaint and new pictures and a few more soft furnishings but its still noisy when busy. Range of changing real ales good but were recently served an end of cask beer which the barman knew was running out and he still didn't take the beer off. There is more competition for beer and food in Northallerton now with the Stumble Inn micro pub and a new Marston's outlet on the North side of town.

13 Jan 2017 10:19

White Swan Inn, Northallerton

Great to see and sample beers from the new Northallerton Brewery on sale at the White Swan.

25 Dec 2016 20:06

The Butchers Dog, Driffield

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

9 Aug 2016 10:13

Green Tree, Bedale

Very busy on an evening visit as a Quiots match had just finished and a hearty meal was being served to both teams. Only a couple of real ales available which included one from Daleside and Cascade from North Riding Brewery which was excellent, Looks a bit tatty inside and out but worth calling in.

9 Aug 2016 07:57

The Friars Head, Akebar

The Friars Head has recently had a complete makeover. It looks like a conversion of an old building but isn't. A comfortable interior with a number of eating/drinking areas. Food menu better than usual pub grub. Real ale range has improved which included a guest from Isaac Poad a new brewery near Knaresborough.

9 Aug 2016 07:54

The Cover Bridge Inn, Leyburn

The Cover Bridge has 7 beers on handpump including regulars Black Sheep Bitter, Theaskston Bitter & Old Peculiar and Timothy Taylor Landlord. Also up to 3 changing guests including Barngates Cat Nap & BAD Comfortably Numb on a recent visit. It has a decent size garden overlooking the River Cover and this year has a splendid flower display planted up by one of the regulars.

9 Aug 2016 07:47

The Black Bull, Middleham

The Black Bull has changed hands recently and has a refurbishment inside and out. Stocks the usual John Smith Cask & Black Sheep bitter but also had a beer from Wensleydale and a changing guest which was Wensleydale Semerwater and next on a beer from Salamander.

9 Aug 2016 07:41

The Crab and Lobster, Sidlesham

Not a lot has changed in the 6 years since Blackthorn posted a review. We had an interesting walk from Selsey around Pagham harbour. Very busy on a Saturday lunchtime but we were found a table. Although the food was expensive it was very good and an interesting range of deserts. The building is a typical former Henty & Constable (Chichester brewery) pub and has been modernised. Unfortunately little positive can be said about the 2 real ales that were served. The first tried was Langham Jester but was cloudy.. The other was Arundel Gold and was also cloudy. I didn't feel there was much point complaining about the beer quality as the emphasis is clearly on food and I don't think the landlord would have been interested.

20 Jul 2016 20:11

Mason's Arms, Northallerton

Interesting town centre local which will be sandwiched by new M&S food store. Interior has lots of original features but a bit spoilt by TV screens. One handpump which serves a good pint of Landlord. Pub food prices looked very reasonable but not sampled.

28 Apr 2016 16:07

The Cheviot Hotel, Bellingham

Still a pleasant hotel bar with locals and walkers. 4 real ales, one national and 3 locals including Toon Broon from Firebrick,Red Kite from Wylam and bitter from High House.

28 Apr 2016 15:56

The Castle Tavern, Richmond

The Castle has now had another refurbishment. Great to find a town centre pub with a real log fire. Now 4 handpumps one of which has a beer from Richmond Brewery and sold at a value price. 3 other real ales included Walls Gun Dog from Northallerton. Busy with locals on a Saturday lunchtime. A couple of TV screens but there is a small quiet room. Food looked to be a range of pub classics.

23 Mar 2016 09:39

The Foresters Arms, Carlton in Coverdale

The pub now has its second tenants in place since the community buy out. The first tenants left a very sound business. No great changes have been made by the new tenants. Expect a warm welcome from Barney. There are now 5 real ales including Theakston & Black Sheep bitters. Also available were Marstons Pedigree, Wensleydale Bitter (probably the best beer from that brewery but all their beers are good) and Attermire (a session IPA) from Settle brewery. Well worth calling in after a walk in Coverdale or climb up Penhill.

14 Mar 2016 09:41

The Drovers Inn, Kirkby Malzeard

This pub has been closed for at least a couple of years

21 Feb 2016 09:42

Unicorn Hotel, Ripon

Lezford was lucky to find a choice of ales in January. In mid February there were the standard Spoons nationals and Black Sheep Golden. This seems to be the case in Weatherspoons in their outlets in North West Yorkshire. For a nearby choice of 3 changing Yorkshire real ales try the new Wilfreds bar but it doesn't open until 4pm.

21 Feb 2016 09:40

King William IV, Ripon

A good local and Hambleton Brewery's tap. Was expecting to find a good range of their beers but locals were drinking Theakston bitter and there was a guest from Burton Bridge brewery. Interesting modern photographs of Hambleton Brewery related themes around the walls.

21 Feb 2016 09:35

Broadway Hotel, Broadway

5 beers on hand pump. Not keen on Wickwar beers but Lancer from Goffs very good (until it ran out) and Hooky bitter. Tried Theakston Old Peculiar which is local to us but had travelled well and was well kept and similar price to North Yorkshire.

14 Feb 2016 10:14

The Crown and Trumpet Inn, Broadway

Artists Ale was on good form. Pity more pubs have not retained the atmosphere of the Crown & Trumpet.

14 Feb 2016 10:11

The Hollow Bottom, Guiting Power

Beers here are all from Greene King stable

14 Feb 2016 10:09

The Fleece Inn, Bretforton

Excellent pub but very busy on a late Sunday lunchtime. Good sandwiches with interesting range of fillings. Beers good but a local light bitter would have been preferable to one from Lees in Manchester.

14 Feb 2016 10:07

Sandford Park Ale House, Cheltenham

Totally agree with Weazel Times' review. As well as sampling some of the range of well kept beers we had soup for lunch. 10% discount on Monday for Camra members

12 Feb 2016 14:37

The Strand, Cheltenham

Very disappointing after visiting the nearby Stanford Ale House. Bar staff did present a sample of the beers they were serving but one from Cottage was undrinkable. Ludlow best okish

12 Feb 2016 14:32

The Hambleton Inn, Hambleton

The Hambleton Inn has been closed for at least 6 months with a For Sale sign. Its looking very sorry for itself now.

1 Feb 2016 12:09

Harrogate Tap, Harrogate

Probably not as inspiring as some of the other Station Taps but a great selection of beers including Black Sheep Imperial Russian Stout. Bar staff take a great interest in being knowledgeable about the beers. Better range of snacks than in other Taps and customers being very complimentary about quality.

7 Jan 2016 16:49

The Old Bell Tavern, Harrogate

As with other Market Town Taverns a well kept selection of real ales. However, I am surprised Oakells have not revamped the food menu. The lunchtime food we had was reheated, dry and not inspiring. Generally the atmosphere was unwelcoming and temperature chilly. The manager was more concerned about being rude about customers than being welcoming. So different to the bar staff in the station tap.

7 Jan 2016 16:46

Number 22 Alehouse and Canteen, Darlington

We have been visiting No 22 for many years usually on a lunchtime but never seem to have posted a review. I have always found the beers to be good with a range from light to dark and including Village Brewer beers. On the last visit there was an excellent Porter from Allendale. The pub mow has its own very micro brewery as well as distilling its own gin & vodka. The lunchtime food is limited but good value for money. I did visit I think over the Christmas period last year when it was very busy but cant comment on evenings. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Darlington.

1 Dec 2015 16:39

The Crown Inn, Manfield

The previous landlords of the Crown have recently retired and new tenants have been running the pub for a little over a week now. First impressions look good. There are slightly longer opening hours. Beers were very good and included some from Brass Castle and Greyhawk as well as Village Brewer. There could perhaps have been one from a local micro. In the longer term there appear to be intentions to offer more food but the homemade cakes looked good.

1 Dec 2015 16:32

The Twisted Lip, Middlesbrough

Perhaps a bit bigger than a classic micro pub but well worth a visit when sampling the others in the area

29 Nov 2015 10:58

Sherlocks, Middlesbrough

One of the 4 closely located micro pubs. Sampled Blackberry porter from Two by Two Brewery.

29 Nov 2015 10:55

The Infant Hercules, Middlesbrough

Another of the near to each other micro pubs with a well served beer from Allendale

29 Nov 2015 10:54

Dr Phils Real Ale House, Middlesbrough

A great example of a micro pub with no bar but 4 beers and friendly locals

29 Nov 2015 10:52

The Devil's Advocate, Middlesbrough

One of the 4 micro pubs in this area was serving 2 house beers from local Truefitt brewery

29 Nov 2015 10:50

The Sun Inn, Stockton On Tees

Vastly over rated compared with the beers in the 2 new micro pubs. The Draught Bass was very disappointing and the décor now dominated by TV display screens

29 Nov 2015 10:49

The Golden Smog, Stockton on Tees

Good choice of beers in this micro pub including 2 from Exit 33.

29 Nov 2015 10:46

The Catherine Wheel, Arlington

Pub is fine but could do with serving some decent local beers. Sharps Atlantic was ok

27 Oct 2015 17:39

The New Inn at Coln, Coln St Aldwyns

Worth a visit on the walk from Bibury and had to return to the village as the Plough is closed on a Monday & Tuesday lunchtime. Food seems to be served every lunchtime and evening. Hooky bitter was fine but Bath Gem not to my taste.

27 Oct 2015 17:36

Wheatsheaf, Northleach

Snarling Mallard sums this place up well. Very little room for drinkers to sit but there were a number of locals around the bar. Hook Norton Hooky bitter and not very local London Brewing Co Chelsea Blonde were being served. Both in good condition.

27 Oct 2015 17:32

Red Lion, Northleach

Still closed

27 Oct 2015 17:29

The Plough Inn, Cold Aston

Its well past time this pub had an update. Revamped and updated it is popular with locals and busy on a sunday lunchtime with food but no problem in serving us bowls of soup. Only 2 beers on one of which was on gravity XT2. Bar server is in a bit of a corridor but generally pub has been sympathetically modernised and is worth a visit

27 Oct 2015 17:26

The Greyhound, Cocking Causeway

An update on my last review. Bar staff on my latest visit very knowledgeable about the beers being served. Dark Star Hophead very good. Food good quality and reasonably priced. Could do with lights in the car park.

26 Oct 2015 16:04

Three Horseshoes, Elsted

Different from its former days as an Ind Coope pub in the 70s with Bitter & Mild from the cask but in many ways improved to meet requirements of todays customers. Now has large car park, great garden and more rooms. 3 beers still direct from the cask. Flower Pots Perridge Pale and Red Cat Scratch both good. Venison casserole tasty in front of roaring fire. Pity views of downs spoilt by cloud.

26 Oct 2015 16:01

The George Inn, Hubberholme

Splendid pub but check opening times. 4 beers on handpump. Black Sheep bitter &Wharfdale Blonde permanent and 2 guests. When we visited Yorkshire Dales Askrigg & Naylors Velvet. Very popular for food but as we visited in the afternoon on the Buckden circular didn't sample but noted booked for the evening.

10 Oct 2015 18:51

The Black Swan, Leyburn

Very much a food pub with a number of rooms set out in Bistro style. Timothy Taylor Golden Best available.

29 Sep 2015 11:11

Richard III, Middleham

Pleasant pub in the Market Square which appears to have had a makeover. pleased to find Wensleydale semer water on sale though at very top range of local prices.

29 Sep 2015 11:10

The All Nations, Madeley

Unfortunately no longer brewing but 4 beers available. Hobsons Twisted Spire, Ludlow Gold and Slaters Haka all good. Very busy on a Sunday afternoon where the locals had returned from a Quiots match at the nearby Blists Hill Victorian Town Museum.

25 Aug 2015 07:26

The Robin Hood Inn, Ironbridge

Reasonably priced food with homemade faggots available, Unfortunately Holdens Bitter was not on but Mild good and golden glow OK

25 Aug 2015 07:23

Tontine Hotel, Telford

Pleasant to visit in the day with outside seating area which overlooks the bridge. Stonehouse Station bitter was good

25 Aug 2015 07:21

The Talbot Inn, Much Wenlock

Good to find an unusual local brew available from Big Shed Brewery. Other real ale was Bass.

25 Aug 2015 07:19

The George and Dragon, Much Wenlock

Disappointing that none of the excellent local brews available. St Austell Tribute was ok.

25 Aug 2015 07:17

The Gaskell Arms Hotel, Much Wenlock

Called in while staying in Much Wenlock. 3 real Ales available. Hobsons Twisted Spire was good.

25 Aug 2015 07:16

Bistro 7, Welshpool

A town centre bar which has a range of 4 well kept real ales and reasonably priced lunchtime meals including an excellent range of Panini and cabiatas

21 Aug 2015 10:03

Hartford Hall Hotel, Hartford

3 beers from Marstons on hand pump. Pub food was from Marstons menu pub menu but was OK. Building and letting rooms in need of serious update.

24 Jul 2015 07:41

The Tiger Inn, Beverley

Great good value food using local producers. Unfortunately the beers are national with nothing local. Could be good if there was a switch to some local brews.

20 Jul 2015 19:56

The Woolpack Inn, Beverley

A good range of Marstons beers and worth visiting if looking for beer in Beverley

20 Jul 2015 19:55

The White Horse Inn, Beverley

A great place to visit. Like stepping back 50 years. OBB excellent value. New toilets and pool room don't distract from the overall impression

20 Jul 2015 19:53

Green Dragon, Beverley

I think the ratings are too high for this pub. Mainly national beers. One unusual porter had just run out. Food OK but very much on Wetherspoons line and some options had run out as well. Much better options for food and beer in Beverley.

20 Jul 2015 19:51

The Cornerhouse, Beverley

The Cornerhouse still has a great selection of well kept beers including local and from further afield. Check about days when food is served.

20 Jul 2015 19:48

Chequers, Beverley

One of the few pubs in Beverley to have a selection of non national beers. The 5 included a 3.8% pale, a 5.8% IPA and a dark. 2 were from ATOM which is not too far away in Hull. Deserves much more than 5 and well worth a visit.

20 Jul 2015 19:46

Three Tuns, Osmotherley

Unfortunately not selling Walls on this visit but Taylor Landlord & Ram Tam

10 Jul 2015 18:18

Station Hotel, Romanby

Best point is its near the station and has been refurbished with a bit of its historic interior remaining. Black Sheep Bitter and Golden plus Help for Heroes from Marston

27 Mar 2015 07:32

Buck Inn, Thornton Watlass

Amazing no reviews since 2009 and I have visited several times. However the Fox family have now retired and the pub has been bought by the Jowetts. No major structural changes but a complete new kitchen fitted and all 4 letting bedrooms refurbished. The bar and restaurant have been spruced up and real fire roaring.. 4 beers on including Walls Gundog bitter, black Sheep Bitter and Theakston Bitter as permanents and a guest from Hambleton. Gundog very good. Food not tried but menu looked good and interesting specials. Pub still open all day.

6 Mar 2015 17:53

The Bakers Arms, Broad Campden

Unfortunately this pub is under new management and the locals appear to have left along with the roaring log fire which has been replaced with a log burner. Still has a good selection of beers and Wye Valley HPA was the best along with Stanney Bitter but the atmosphere has gone.

6 Mar 2015 17:45

Eight Bells, Chipping Campden

Busy pub on a Friday night with customers eating. Food was good with an interesting menu. Booking required for busy times. 4 beers on including Hooky Bitter and the best was Wye Valley HPA. Only a short stagger from the interesting Landmark Trust Banqueting House where we stayed.

6 Mar 2015 17:42

The Volunteer Inn, Chipping Campden

Only 2 beers on a busy Friday Night. Very much a locals bar. Beers were Sharps Doombar which I avoided and Robinsons Dizzy Blonde. A half was ok but why nothing locally brewed?

6 Mar 2015 17:39

The Lygon Arms Hotel, Chipping Campden

Looks like a traditional Cotswold coaching Inn fro the outside but the bar is a throwback to the 70s. Few customers on a Friday night. 3 real ales and tried the Prescott Hillclimb which was OK.

6 Mar 2015 17:36

The Graduate, Cambridge

This Wetherspoons is called the Tivoli (and has been since at least 2010) as JP71 visited then. Beers tried from Wibblers and Orkney were fine but a lack of lighter beers available. Most were traditional bitters. A pleasant 'spoons even when busy on steak night.

24 Feb 2015 16:33

The Maypole, Cambridge

A great location and an interesting range of beers. Tried a variety and all were good but as others have said the stronger beers at over £5 a pint are very expensive.

24 Feb 2015 16:28

The Pickerel Inn, Cambridge

Only 2 Oakham badged beers available which were no more than OK. Another unrecognised beer was undrinkable and should not have been served. It had been busy in Cambridge on a Sunday afternoon but no excuse for selling bad beer

24 Feb 2015 16:26

The Horse And Groom, East Ashling

Dark Star Hophead in good condition and still £3 a pint. Food was good and not bad value

24 Feb 2015 16:22

The White Horse, Graffham

Only Arundel Castle and Sharps Doombar available. A disappointing choice

24 Feb 2015 16:21

The Crown Inn, Askrigg

The Crown is now run by a local family. Has Black Sheep Bitter, John Smiths Cask, Theakston Best & Black Bull plus a guest from Yorkshire Dales which is brewed in the village. This was Howgate a 4.1% light hoppy brew on a recent visit. Fires in 2 rooms including a splendid old range in the snug. Simple pub food available lunch & evening. Sells Wensleydale ice cream made locally and only available in the dale. plain Jersey very good. Look out for the homemade piccalilli and sweet pickled onion.

5 Dec 2014 07:46

Treaty of Commerce, Lincoln

An oasis in an area of the town where the real ale choice is not so god. Batemans beers and some well kept guests. The Batemans Salem Porter was in poor condition but was instantly changed and taken off and replaced by a guest stout.

1 Dec 2014 16:49

The Victoria, Lincoln

Batemans beers served plus guests from the Bateman list. Beers well kept but strugglers is the slightly better of the 2.

1 Dec 2014 16:46

Strugglers Inn, Lincoln

Excellent beer selection and over 3 evening visits 3 beers changed daily from the guests. Was able to try a number of local micros new to me. Friendly locals and real 2 real fires including a small snug. Well worth getting the walk and ride bus (day only) if you are travelling by train as it stops close by.

1 Dec 2014 16:44

The Wig and Mitre, Lincoln

Yes it is restaurant but I thought Oakham JHB was on fine form and there was a guest winter ale from Tom Wood. Had an early afternoon snack which was fine.

1 Dec 2014 16:41

The Magna Carta, Lincoln

Probably been refurbished since Barrow Beer Hunter visited. Range of 5 from the Marston stable and appeared to be one of the cheaper pubs in Lincoln.

1 Dec 2014 16:39

York Tap, York

Always something different to try and the beers are well kept. One not to miss when visiting York.

1 Dec 2014 16:36

Pivo Cafe Bar, York

Beer choice as interesting as ever. However the upstairs gents toilets were in a terrible state on Sunday afternoon. Nearly needed stilts. Such a shame in a lovely old building.

1 Dec 2014 16:33

George and Dragon, Hudswell

The George and Dragon was bought through shares by the local community some 4 years ago. The first tenants unfortunately had to leave in July due to ill health. The new tenant has undertaken some refurbishment and installed a bigger bar which means he can now serve 5 real ales. On a recent visit local micro breweries were represented and Black Sheep has gone. Beers sampled were in good condition. Food menu has been changed but have not sampled it. Worth a walk through the woods from Richmond and up the steps to reach Hudswell.

17 Nov 2014 12:35

The Castle Tavern, Richmond

The lease for the Castle Tavern has now been taken over by Richmond Brewery. There may have been some refurbishment since the takeover by Richmond. Their press release noted that there would always be 2 of their beers available but on a recent visit there was only Swale Ale which was undrinkable. It is a pity if the beers from Richmond have deteriorated as they did with the previous owners.

17 Nov 2014 12:30

The Royal Oak, Tetbury

Pub totally revamped with fire in the bar, restaurant upstairs and 6 letting rooms in separate block. 5 real ales including 3 changing guest beers. Great stout from Stroud brewery. good to see a decent ub in tetbury at long last.

7 Nov 2014 16:06

Crown Inn, Tetbury

Currently being refurbished so possibly hope for the future

7 Nov 2014 16:04

The Close Hotel, Tetbury

Hotel now owned by Cotswolds Inns and totally refurbished. One real ale available from Wickwar. Restaurant very good and excellent value accommodation packages available. A pity the fire with splendid Tudor surround is located opposite the front door and the other fire is in reception.

7 Nov 2014 16:02

The Marlborough Arms, Cirencester

Pub with a good range of beers & ciders. Lots of brewery memorabilia. Unfortunately on our visit some of the beers were not up to the standard expected in a Good Beer Guide listed pub and local Camra Branch pub of the Year. Pub serves lunchtime food but chef was on a "day off".

7 Nov 2014 15:58

Golden Lion, Osmotherley

Now has a new set of handpumps so 4 beers on at weekends and busy times. Still concentrating on local microsRooms have been revamped for Coast to Coast walkers for B&B

21 Oct 2014 16:33

The Cricketers Arms, Keighley

Over the road from the Boltmakers and worth seeking out. 2 beers from Yates plus guests.

21 Oct 2014 16:30

The Brown Cow, Keighley

Watch for opening times which seem to be 16.00 including Saturday

21 Oct 2014 16:28

The Boltmakers Arms, Keighley

Busy on a Saturday afternoon. Had full range of Timothy Taylors

21 Oct 2014 16:27

The Old White Lion Hotel, Haworth

Worth the walk up the High Street. Food quite good but Goose Eye bitter in poor condition. Moorhouses White Witch very good.

21 Oct 2014 16:25

The Fleece Inn, Haworth

Probably as good as Timothy Taylors gets. Ram Tam the best of an average set of beers. Busy on Saturday night but quieter on Sunday night.

21 Oct 2014 16:23

The Snooty Fox, Oakworth

More of a music venue than a cosy pub but Goose Eye Chinook excellent and good value for money.

21 Oct 2014 16:21

The Sun, Pickering

Well worth the walk from the Town Centre to find this excellent pub which sells 5 real ales mainly from Yorkshire which change to a different beer as soon as one runs out. Tetley Bitter is also sold as a non Yorkshire beer as the pub was a former Tetley House. There is a room for music and a lively Jam Session was taking place when we visited on a Sunday afternoon. Weekday openings not until 16.00

20 Oct 2014 17:39

The Tobie Norris, Stamford

Great pub with a good range of well kept beers including local micros. Hopsickle very good. Bar staff went to the cellar to fetch one I hadn't tried before from Oldershaw brewery. Worth having a look around all the rooms. Lots of breweriania on the walls. Large Pizzas looked good.

30 Sep 2014 10:23

The Green Man, Stamford

A good choice of beers including local micros but Castle Rock was not as good as it should be and 2 stronger beers, an IPA from Revolutions and a stout from Nene Valley were not up to standard. Loud rock type music being played on the juke box on a Saturday night. Not the place for a quiet drink.

30 Sep 2014 10:16

The George, Stamford

Fantastic building with many rooms including dining rooms, bars, lounges and courtyards. Very busy on a Saturday afternoon with visitors taking afternoon tea. 3 Real ales in the bar including a blonde from Nene Valley. Beer fine but probably the most expensive beer in Stamford. Have a credit card with you if you wish to sample from the wine list.

29 Sep 2014 14:05

The Crown Hotel, Stamford

The hotel bar, lounge and restaurant area is being refurbished. Bar area looks good and there are 3 real ales available. Oakham JHB was one of the best pints sampled on a 3 day stay in Stamford. Beers seem to change on a regular basis. Good value compared to The George. Outside courtyard very popular. Breakfast good but didn't try new food menu.

29 Sep 2014 14:02

The Grainstore Brewery, Oakham

Still a good place to be able to sample the range of Grainstore beers. Osprey suited my taste but range could do with a lighter low gravity bitter. Stange that the bar was being used to carry out a job appraisal for an employee of a local company (not Grainstore)

29 Sep 2014 09:46

The Crown and Anchor, Sowerby

The Crown & Anchor has a new tenant and the previous policy of a range of well kept beers has gone. Copper Dragon Golden Pippin was the best on offer and was poor quality. A great shame but perhaps there will be improvements.

11 Sep 2014 09:56

The Albion, Arnside

This pub must have undergone a sea change over the past 3 years. Now has 6 beers on handpump, 5 from Thwaites and a guest which was from Allgates. One of the Thwaites is "The Bore" which (for Thwaites) is an excellent light 3.8% beer. All were well kept. The food is very good. A range of daily specials including locally caught fish and I have never seen 10 different ways of serving potatoes on a menu before. Very busy on an early September weekend. Staff all friendly. View from the outside seating area over the Kent Estuary fantastic.

10 Sep 2014 07:46

Nags Head Country Inn, Pickhill

York Guzzler was good on this visit. Black Sheep Bitter also available. Not sure about 2011 comment about selling things off. Walls well displayed with artefacts. Menu looked good with Grouse on the menu.

1 Sep 2014 09:41

The Vale of York, Carlton Miniott

Serves Copper Dragon Golden Pippin, Theakston Bitter & Black Sheep on a regular basis. B&B popular with fisherman who visit local lakes.

1 Sep 2014 09:37

The Three Tuns, Thirsk

All 6 handpumps with beer clips were displayed when we walked in but on asking for the 2 most interesting beers the manager said they were unavailable. He said this was company policy. I find this difficult to comprehend. Why raise expectations only to be told the product is unavailable? weatherspoons have been doing this foe years. Perhaps try Little 3 down the road

1 Sep 2014 09:35

Old Red House, Thirsk

Poor beer selection but an interesting modernised interior

1 Sep 2014 09:31

Kings Arms, Thirsk

Four handpumps with 3 clips turned round. Only Black sheep bitter available. Pity because it looks to have local brews on at times

21 Aug 2014 10:56

The Bear, Stratford

The beer selection on our stay was dominated by Green King and Hook Norton although the GK offerings were not the standard ones. The House beer from North Cotswold was fine. The best by far was HPA from Wye Valley. Bar food was ok. Very busy with locals. On the Thursday night one of the bar staff seemed to be having a competition to see how many glasses she could smash in the most spectacular fashion. Both the bar and restaurant are outsourced and need to bring in hands on management.

21 Aug 2014 10:13

The Stratford Alehouse, Stratford Upon Avon

Very busy on a Friday night and beer selection interesting. The biggest disappointment was that I though the beers lacked condition. good value for stratford.

21 Aug 2014 10:06

The New Bulls Head, Stratford Upon Avon

A better beer selection than most of the pubs in stratford upon avon although as a community pub would have expected more support for local micros. Food is reasonable pub standards and shop very useful for the local area.

21 Aug 2014 10:03

Grouse Inn, Carrog

As the other reviews say fantastic views from the bar and the outside seating area. A short walk from the Llangothlen railway. The Golden Pedlar was very good. Even though a Lees pub it has retained its identity.

27 Jul 2014 11:43

The Snowdonia Parc Free House, Waunfawr

Great location for train spotting but only 3 each way in high summer. The brews were interesting but a bit too malty for my taste. Best was the gold. However there are 13 regular brews so another visit could find a different range. Very popular with campers as the pub has its own site.

27 Jul 2014 10:26

Station Inn, Porthmadog

2 beers on sale including Purple Moose Snowdonia but other was Doombar. Lots of railway memorabilia. Station buildings undergoing some refurbishment while the railway is currently closed

27 Jul 2014 10:20

The Spooner's Bar, Porthmadog

excellent location for watching the comings and goings at the station. I didn't think the range or condition of the beers was as good as others have said. Purple Moose Snowdonia was fine but Salopian Gold was out of condition.

27 Jul 2014 10:17

The Y Llong (The Ship), Porthmadog

Very much a food pub but does have 4 handpumps. On our visit all serving national brews and no evidence of local brews having been on sale. Marstons New world in good condition.

27 Jul 2014 10:14

The Gold Cup Inn, Nether Silton

It was great to visit this pub which has eluded us when walking as it is closed lunchtimes but well worth seeking out and is now selling Copper Dragon as well as Black Sheep

13 Jul 2014 10:17

The Station Tavern, Grosmont

Bar staff did not have a clue how to change a cask. Beer range not impressive.

13 Jul 2014 10:11

The Crossing Club, Grosmont

Visited on 2 evenings and beer quality was not good on both visits

13 Jul 2014 10:08

The Station Inn, Whitby

Good range of beers including Platform 3 from local Whitby Brewery

13 Jul 2014 10:07

Ye Olde Punch Bowl Inn, Marton-cum-Grafton

The pub is now being run by Provenance Inns who run around 6 other pubs in North Yorkshire. There is usually a concentration on food but the Punch Bowl still has the feel of a village local. There is a pleasant outside sitting/eating area at the back of the pub (spoilt by smokers if you are eating). On the plus side it was a pleasant surprise to find Rudgate Bycyleale being served as Provenance pubs usually only serve Black Sheep and Timothy Taylors beers.

23 Jun 2014 10:09

The City Arms, Cardiff

Good range of guest beers but many from Devon & Somerset. Could have been a few more local ones. Found the Urban Tap beers better.

13 May 2014 09:08

Urban Tap House, Cardiff

Beers from Tiny Rebel (Hank a hoppy light bitter and a Smoked Oat Stout) very good. A large range of guest beers from around the country. Friendly knowledgeable staff. The food was a bit mixed. Welsh burger very good but fish burger lacked much fish. Best of the 4 city centre pubs on a brief visit.

13 May 2014 09:05

Zerodegrees, Cardiff

During a brief 2 hour afternoon stop in Cardiff on an 18 hour rail charter from Darlington we visited 4 city centre pubs. Zero degrees lacked atmosphere and customers. Beer was quite good although served very cold and expensive despite lower afternoon price.

13 May 2014 09:00

Black Bull Inn, Moulton

Reopened at the end of March 2014. The pub has had a complete makeover and is now owned and run by Provenence Inns. The emphasis is on food and accommodation is under construction. There is still a cosy bar and a modern restaurant has been created. The carriage from the Brighton Bell was sold when the property was under receivership and is now being restored for the Brighton Bell train.. Beers are from Black Sheep (Bitter & Golden Sheep) and Theakston (Black Bull)

10 Apr 2014 15:47

The Kings Arms, Leyburn

Called in after a walk. Did not eat but food provided for local football team after their Saturday afternoon match looked good. Black Sheep & Theakston Bitter are permanent and a house beer from Yorkshire Dales plus 2 other excellent special brews from Yorkshire Dales. An excellent 3.8% blonde and a 3.8% stout. All keg bitters have now been removed.

11 Mar 2014 09:00

White Swan Inn, Richmond

Now reopened and some refurbishment has been undertaken and is continuing. Three handpumps include a house beer from local micro Mithrill and 2 guests which might be local or national. Food is locally sourced including meats from a local butcher and bread from local bakery. Walls have a gallery from local artists and craftspeople. Open all day for coffee and cake as well as food lunchtime and evening.

24 Dec 2013 10:45

The Bishop Blaize, Richmond

4 Handpumps with Taylor Landlord as a regular. Others may be national or a local micro. A good selection of reasonably priced home cooked food. 10% discount on real ales for Camra members.

23 Oct 2013 17:17

The Talbot Hotel, Richmond

Not worth visiting if you want to sample real ale. Nothing available on a visit today. Other establishments are a better option in Richmond.

23 Oct 2013 17:14

The Coore Arms, Scruton

The pub has changed hands and food is still very good but beer range not so good. Usually Black Sheep and a national guest. Will not stock local micro products

30 Sep 2013 07:37

Bar 100, Northallerton

This establishment is now a branch of Santander Bank

30 Sep 2013 07:33

The White Heifer Inn, Scorton

The décor remains as described below and makes a change from the usual in rural North Yorkshire. However, music much too loud and not suitable for a lunchtime.
The beer choice is disappointing. as a free house could stock from the excellent local micros but does not. House beer is from Thwaites and often something from a national brewer. A welcome change has been Castle Rock Harvest Pale but was cloudy.
The good value lunchtime menu has been dropped and prices have increased significantly. There is better value in other local pubs.

30 Jul 2013 15:54

The Farmers Arms Inn, Scorton

The pub has had a makeover with a number of interesting local photographs showing historic Scorton and Scorton Station. as a Punch owned pub they don't have any local micro products but have a guest or 2 from the list which could be Specked hen or Fullers London Pride. However beers are well kept.
Food is reasonable home cooked and there is a discount if you have a loyalty card from the "D&S Times". The Thursday night quizzes are very popular.

30 Jul 2013 15:48

The Greyhound, Cocking Causeway

Food still very good here. Beer ok but a pity the landlady doesn't take more interest in what the beers are and where they come from

10 Jul 2013 11:20

The Merry Harriers, Hambledon

Great pub with an interesting range of local micros. Excellent ploughmans with home made pork pie along with lots of other tempting cheeses. Went on to local national trust Oakhurst cottage which is well worth a visit but book first.

10 Jul 2013 11:16

Dolphin & Anchor, Chichester

I found the beer range here pretty good with at least 6 local micros on sale. busy on a Friday lunchtime.

10 Jul 2013 11:11

Ye Olde Three Tuns, Thirsk

Pub now reopened as Little 3 Real Ale & wine Bar. Had a poor choice of real ales when visited and hope that in future it will have a range of local beers rather than national products. Can only score it low unless range of beers and staff taking an interest in their beers improves. Food looked good value for money. Did not see a wine list on view. Building has had an interesting renovation.

25 Apr 2013 14:20

Fox Covert, Ingleby Barwick

Pretty much the same as previous comments back in 2009. Now has Deuchars, Black Sheep Bitter & Theakston Old Peculiar. Deuchars was fine but such a pity that local micros are not on sale in a free house. We had sandwiches which were good and came with home made chips

25 Apr 2013 14:14

The Milbank Arms, Well

This is a cosy country freehouse with good food. The 2 permanent beers are Black Sheep Bitter and Theakston Bitter. Both well kept. A guest beer usually from a local brweery such as Rudgate or Walls is put on on Thursday night for the weekly pub quiz

8 Apr 2013 12:49

Euston Tap, Euston

Steamer took us here while we had a 4 hour wait for the Eurostar on the way to Bruges. An interesting selection of beers and those tried were good including a stout from Bristol.

27 Mar 2013 17:53

De Garre, Bruges

As others say a great bar and the house tripple is excellent. Talked with a number of visitors who knew their beers both Belgian and English

27 Mar 2013 17:45

Cambrinus, Bruges

Did not like this place. Very busy when we called in at around 4.30 with many tables reserved for evening eating. Although a good selection of beers try Poatersgat at 8a Vlamingstraat which opens at 17.00 for an atmospheric bar.

27 Mar 2013 17:42

Cafe Vlissinghe, Bruges

Worth the walk from the town centre. Had a special selectrion of Trapist bottles. has Half Moon Bruges Zot on tap. We were welcomed and served an excellent lunch. Fire roaring in the old stove in the middle of the room

27 Mar 2013 17:38

't Brugs Beertje, Bruges

As good as the previous reports say. Definately worth a visit when in Bruges

27 Mar 2013 17:35

Golden Lion, Osmotherley

Although this pub does concentrate on food (which is excellent with a changing specials board) it is worth visiting for the beers. There are 3 handpumps which have a range of beers mainly from Yorkshire breweries. Today there was Walls Brewers Gold, York Decade and a 5% IPA from Roosters. The lanlord is knowledgable about his beer and had a number from Walls Hop Studio and Salamander to put on over Easter. Walkers are welcome and recently there has been a small extension built on the back which means there is always room for drinkers.

27 Mar 2013 17:33

The Bridge Inn, Whorlton

The bridge has recently reopened with new tenants and had been damaged in winter floods. The are 3 handpumps. One with Theakston Bitter, one with a beer from Mithrill and a guest (which was Brains Bread of Heaven). There is a pleasant wood panelled bar with an open log fire and a separate dining room. The pub is open all day for coffee and food. Bar opens at noon. Walkers are welcome (we had taken off our muddy boots after a walk along the teesdale way). Seems to have changed from the previous comment.

7 Feb 2013 10:08

White Hart Inn, Hawes

The White Hart is now a genuine free house being bought from Enterprise in the winter of 2011. The owners have undertaken a full refurbishment to the bar, kitchen and bedrooms. There are 2 bar rooms with the larger having a white multli fuel stove. The landlord is keen on his real ale. When we visited there was Theakston bitter, Wensleydale Semmer water and Salamanda Cracker. There was a display of previous beer pump clips and all the local micros were represented. All the beers tasted were in good condition. There is a separate dining room and a pub food menu for the bar. We had some interesting sandwiches. Much of the meat is sourced locally. The landlord said that there are 5 letting bedrooms. It is good to see a choice of real ale in Hawes for a change.

7 Feb 2013 10:01

Tithe Bar, Northallerton

The Tithe Bar was refurbished last summer. Unfortunately needs more soft furnishings as noise is overpowering when it is busy and it can be cold in the winter. However the range of ever changing beers is excellent and have always been on good form on recent visits. By far the best place for real ales in Northallerton. A great pity that all the beer pictures, beer mats etc have been removed during the redecorations

29 Jan 2013 10:59

The Beeswing Inn, Northallerton

The Beeswing has just reopened after the previous tenants left. Was redecorated over a year ago and is much improved. Menu looked OK and will be starting a lunch menu soon. Beers are through punch so those on offer were uninspiring. Hope that new tenants can keep it going

29 Jan 2013 10:10

Unicorn Hotel, Ripon

Based on a recent visit I did not rate the beers as highly as others have at the Unicorn. The selection was OK but no dark beers. Fixtures and fittings are beginning to look tired already and the glass in a picture was broken. Front bar area was dominated by noisy groups with young children

29 Jan 2013 10:07

White Swan Inn, Richmond

Unfortunately now closed and for sale

16 Sep 2012 16:44

The Coore Arms, Scruton

Have not tried the food so cant comment on that. Unfortunately on a recent visit real ales were poor including Black Sheep and Robinsons Dizzy Blonde. Hope that was a one off as pub is popular with locals

27 Aug 2012 16:40

Masons Arms, Harrogate

Pub is now closed and looks like it has been for a few months. Weeds growing around the walls and car park. Nothing to indicate wether it is temporary and no for sale sign outside

26 Aug 2012 19:56

North Riding Hotel, Scarborough

Best thing about the North Riding is its own good value beers and range of other beers. All good value for money. Brewer trained by Rob at Yorkshire Dales which shows. Very quiet on a Friday lunchtime. Toilets certainy need a refurb. If you need to eat on a weekday lunchtime there is a good value cafe across the road.

25 Aug 2012 10:23

Lord Rosebery, Scarborough

A very typical weatherspoons. Busy and noisy on a Friday afternoon. As ever too many "available soon" beers (why in such a busy establishment). Titanic White Star was good. Wold Top Anglers Revenge not at its best. Best thing is its well placed for the station for a quick one befre getting the train

25 Aug 2012 10:19

The Royal Oak, West Lavington

Now open again!!! Much changed from when I had my first legal pint there in the early 70s. Has a selection of real ales from near and far (a distant outlet for Black Sheep). Was running a beer festival with entertainment over Easter. Although we did not eat others said the food was good. Hope that it can survive a bit longer than previous attempts.

19 Apr 2012 10:50

The Foresters Arms, Graffham

In many ways more a restaurant than a pub but a splendid interior. There is a good selection of real ales including Dark Star Hophead, Harveys Bitter and a beer from Langhams. Busy on a Saturday night and our party all thought the main courses were good although the vegetarian option was said to be a small portion.

19 Apr 2012 10:44

The Wheatsheaf, Ripon

This pub has now been demolished and a care home will be built on the site

20 Mar 2012 10:25

The Dog and Gun, Knayton

Visit tis pub for food rather than for real ale. Only Black Sheep bitter available. Sunday lunches very popular.

11 Mar 2012 10:43

The One Eyed Rat, Ripon

Splendid pub which always has a great choice of beers. Yesterday 5 golden ales from near and further away plus Black Sheep Bitter (for those who want it) and a porter. Front bar area has a fire in the winter and there is a large garden for the summer.

11 Mar 2012 10:40

The Palmer Flatt Hotel, Wensleydale

Watch out for reopening Easter 2012.

20 Feb 2012 10:20

The George and Dragon, Leyburn

Still no changes here. 5 real ales available and all well kept. An excellent pint of Yorkshire Dales, Citron Seat on Saturday afternoon. Lunchtime and evening menus looked interesting.

20 Feb 2012 10:17

The Foresters Arms, Carlton in Coverdale

This pub has now been bought through a community share issue and is owned by nearly 400 local people and others from further afield. It reopened on Christmas Eve after a refurbishment because the previous owners made a number of internal alterations and took out the kitchen. There is ongoing work to the restaurant, kitchen and the 3 letting bedrooms which the landlord anticipates will open in January/February. There are 4 real ales available with Black Sheep Bitter and John Smith Cask as well as 2 guest beers which will be sourced from local breweries including Wensleydale. Lovely old fire place in the bar and adjoining room also has an open fire.

29 Dec 2011 12:21

The Station, Ripon

When I last passed this pub was closed and boarded up

21 Dec 2011 10:55

The Last Drop Inn, York

Choice of 3 beers from York Brewery plus 3 guests all in good form. Food OK but a fairly limited choice. However the gents toilets probably rate as the smelliest in York.

21 Dec 2011 10:47

White Swan, Stokesley

The brewery is back to its old self with the return of Ian Jackson following the terrible attack on him in Darlington. On Sunday there were 7 Captain Cook beers available inluding the new Resolution bitter and the fantastic Black Porter. There were also two guest beers. Great to visit in the winter with the fire roaring.

29 Nov 2011 15:32

The Roseberry, Stokesley

This pub is now closed and being converted to a Costa Coffee outlet

29 Nov 2011 15:28

The Bolton Arms, Redmire

New landlord has made a great difference to this pub. Now 4 real ales available. The standard range of Smith Cask, Black Sheep Bitter and Theakston Best but also one guest which was Rudgate Ruby Mild on last visit. Pity more local micros not on offer. Now open all day and letting rooms available. Travel to Redmire on the Wensleydale Railway, walk down to the pub, have lunch and catch the next train back.

10 Nov 2011 10:17

Darlington Snooker Club, Darlington

As ever another excellent beer festival held in early November with beers from local breweries including Mithril, Yorkshire Dales and Just a Minute as well as new ones to me from further afield such as Lymestone. All beers sampled were in excellent condition and served from the main bar and the extended bar which is in the lounge area. No draught mint sauce this time but Rita's homemade mushy peas were good. Pop in and suggest your favourite beer to Pete who will try to get some in the future.

5 Nov 2011 11:50

The Village Inn, Nailsworth

On 2 visits to this pub and brewery over the past year things ar not as they were. Beer range available which are brewed on site much reduced but in good condition. Both times the locals had to rescue the fire to warm the place up a bit. Will continue to call in hen in the area and hope things pick up.

30 Oct 2011 10:28

The Old Crown, Uley

4 beers available including 2 from the local Uley Brewery which were in good condition. Called in near food closing time at lunchtime but the friendly staff prepared excellent ham bagettes. Interior is a bit plain but outside views are excellent.

30 Oct 2011 10:20

White Swan Inn, Richmond

A genuine house and is the Brewery Tap for Mithril and always one of their beers is available as well as 3 other beers. A successful beer festival was held in August and further events are planned.

30 Oct 2011 10:09

The Bear of Rodborough Hotel, Rodborough Common

Since the previous review "renovations" have been undertake here and are not in keeping with this historic building. Log fires seem to have gone and the residents lounge has a window knocked through to the bar. However, on the plus side there are now 4 real ales served, all local and well kept. The Restaurant food is very good and bar meals seem popular. There are very good value packages availalable through Cotswold Inns.

27 Oct 2011 17:53

The Old Spot, Dursley

Excellent choice of 9 beers including 3 from breweries which I had not come across before. All those sampled were in very good condition. Interesting brewery memrobilia on display. Well worth calling in if you are walking the Cotswold Way

27 Oct 2011 17:47

White Swan Inn, Northallerton

After more than 20 years living in North Yorkshire it is fantastic to have a local which is a genuine free house selling 5 beers in excellent condition. The beers are from local micros including Mithril, Yorkshire Dales, Wensleydale and often 2 from the new Walls County Town Brewery in Northallerton. In the summer the pub is open all day but now the Coast to Coast passing trade has stopped opening hours are more restricted but open evenings and weekend lunchtimes (but closed Tuesday). Looking forward to sitting in front of a roaring log burner on a winters evening. As Steamer says best to check if you are intending to eat.

17 Oct 2011 18:09

Black Bull, Bishop Aukland

This excellent pub stocks 4 regularly changing real ales mainly from local breweries such as Allendale, Wylam and Consett. Real cider is also stocked. The interior is worth seeing and has been used for a variety of TV locations. There are coal fires in each of the 3 rooms. The landlord is a professional photographer and a variety of his work is displayed around the walls. Best to book for meals. It is only a short walk from Frosterley station on the weardale railway. Look out for Frosterley marble. It is a pity that a keg lager font has been introduced.

17 Oct 2011 10:10

The Three Tuns, Thirsk

While agreeing with the other reviews that this is an interesting conversion of an old building, the beer choice has gradually deteriorated. On one recent visit 3 of the six handpumps were out of action due to "line cleaning" although pump clips remained in place. Yesterday there were 2 5% beers as well as the usual Abbot & Ruddles. Guest was Tetley bitter. The previous local beers such as those from York & Hambleton have disappeared. For a better local choice visit the Crown & Anchor in Sowerby.

4 Oct 2011 10:09

The Cover Bridge Inn, Leyburn

As ever the Cover Bridge is always worth a visit to discover which 3 guest beers will feature. Usually beers from Yorkshire and often from local micros including Mithrill, Yorkshire Dales, Wensleydale and Walls County Town and in the 3.8 to 4% range.

29 Sep 2011 20:25

Ralph FitzRandal, Richmond

This Spoons runs monthly festivals featuring local and regional breweries or types of beer (eg dark beers). The recent one was Walls County Town Brewery which is newly established in Northallerton. All 5 beers were in good condition and the Summer Gold was outstanding. Looking forward to the Salamander festival next weekend.
