The Cross Keys Hotel, York

Re-opened yesterday following a major refurbishment. It looks a lot better than it was and here's the best bit.....it's now a real aler !!!

Very kind of the new management to offer free main courses by application yesterday. The rump steak was excellent!! A decent selection of ales too, so this goes back at last on the ones to visit in York list.

Leaping Salmon, Berwick upon Tweed

Called in last Saturday afternoon. The price of the beer on offer and the food are the obvious (but unfortunately the only) reasons to visit. I received a pint of Abbott but it was obviously off. Spoke to another female staff member who gladly pulled another, explaining it had just been changed. It still wasn't right, so I was offered an alternative, which was drinkable without being memorable.

The plate of chilli con carne nachos were cheap, cheerful and quick to arrive. Some of the male locals were loud if inoffensive and it wasn't overfull.....that said the weather was filthy!! The right side of okay for the visit but no more.

The Barrels Alehouse, Berwick upon Tweed

Called in last Saturday afternoon. Plenty of regulars and visitors in to watch the France v Scotland rugby match. What a pub this is, a sure fire 10 rating!! A pity there aren't more like this around.

Sampled ESB and a 6.7%er called Old Jock Ale which was superb. A few more were also available, apart from a decent selection of bottled ales. The ambience and the general interior decor was something to behold! The best pub in Berwick by a country mile. If you're in the area, this is the one to visit.
