The Unicorn, Ambleside

Good real ale and food pub. Visited on quiet Sunday evening in mid-October. Friendly efficient bar and serving staff. Selection of Hartleys and Robinsons beers on. Good plate-fulls of freshly-cooked food. No chicken dishes available on the night, but he Hungarian meatballs from the specials board were very good, and rare steak cooked nice and rare! Comfortable traditional pub intterior. Relatively unobtrusive background music. Highly likely to return again during this week's say in town.

Ring O Bells, Chagford

Had a good evening meal. Reasonable selection of pub ffavourites from standard menu plus specials menu. Our two meals were good quality and portions. Very satisfying.

Choice of three real ales, as per the previous review, plus two Thatchers ciders - Gold and Dry. Some lagers, too I think, but who's interested in them?

There was a sign to the beer garden, but as a cold and wet evening we didn't investigate.

Good atmosphere. Dogs welcome. Pleasant, efficient staff. Good pub.

The Golden Fleece, York

Quite a reasonable and interesting pub. Visited for food on a Saturday evening, recomended by the Black Swan who don't do food of a weekend evening. Small front Shambles bar and rear Merchants Bar down a corridor, plus further dining room up some rather uniquely crooked stairs - the whole place seems to slope to one side!

Good pint of Golden Pippin (Copper Dragon Brewery?). Good steak pie; out of cottage pie on the night (told 10 min after ordering) - replacement fish & chips was two pieces, and not small ones! Plus enormous fluffy chips (or maybe deep-fried reformed mash potato planks?). So, good portions.

Menu also contains history and ghost stories, but the place doesn't overdo this (just ignore the skeleton waiting at the rear bar).
