The Dragon Hotel, Harrogate

Now called the Skipton, with K reversed, oh those crazy Harrogate folk.

Crathorne Arms, Yarm

A large well appointed pub in a village now by passed by the A19. It comprises one long room with a more formal dining room/restaurant at one end, there are several distinct areas created by stub walls and a careful choice of furnishing and flooring. There are lots of leather benches, sofas and stools with small tables, on the walls old photos of the pub, events and the village. Four handpumps serving Arran Dark, O'Hanlons Port Stout and well kept North Yorkshire's Organic Love Muscle, nice to see a number of darker ales for a change. More unusual range of kegs including Grolsch and Coors plus various temperatures of Carling and some Guinness and Caffreys. GBG listed there is a pool table at one end and a reasonable car park at the rear.

Buck Inn, Thornton Watlass

Handsome stone built pub on the village green, it has a cozy bar, a dining room and a function room “The Long Room. Traditional pub décor in the carpeted bar, long benches, stools and Brittania tables, no noisey things such as TVs or fruit machines, just conversation and a friendly atmosphere. The usual sort of maps and pictures you expect to find plus a few mounted heads and tails of foxes and otters, dead a long time ago I hasten to add. Five handpumps gracing the bar with fine Yorkshire beers from Theakstons, York, Black Sheep and Daleside. The usual keg products of Tadcaster etc are naturally available. There is a large collection of we're in the Good Beer Guide stickers behind the bar testifying to the quality of the ales. Good food is also available.
