The Monks Walk in Beverley

The Monks Walk can be accessed from either Highgate or Eastgate, where the inscription over the arch reads Thee Old Monks Walk. From this direction the garden is to the left and the bars are ahead, the main bar on the left and the extension for busy periods on the right, off the passageway leading through to Highgate.

There is a different beer offering in the two bars. The main bar has three hand pumps and there is a blackboard listing what's on in the other bar. The servers always offer to go and get a beer from the other bar if you seem interested. When the second bar is open there are three more hand pumps there and also some small barrels on a shelf behind, so potentially nine beers altogether, though they don't last long. (See photos for some of the beers seen during our visits.)

The garden is being redeveloped, but is still usable, and in fact there seemed to be some sort of function taking place on one of our visits, with food laid out as for a buffet. There is plenty of room inside (the second bar can be used for seating even when it's not staffed), though on a busy Saturday night I must admit we did struggle to find a seat. At quieter times, this is one of the most relaxing pubs I can remember, even when a casual look around reveals any number of anomalous fittings in rooms that are clearly trying their best to look as though they haven't changed for four or five centuries. Definitely one to keep coming back to.

Marine Hotel in South Shields
The marine is a large pub a ten min walk from the beach into the main town. It is one long main room with seating for diners on a higher level to the left with a pool room behind it to the right. the decor is traditional but very worn and could do with a spruce but not desperately shabby. To my surprise there were three real ales on the bar which is unusual for south shields, I tried the local shuggy boat blonde from the Cullercoats brewery and this was a very nice well kept pint at an ok £2.75, there was also collingwood brewery Victoria pale ale at £ £2.85 and big lamp brewerys big red for £2,80. The palce was empty on my visit expect for a very drunkien man sat at the bar necking john smiths so not the best atmosphere ever but the beer made up for it. I would probably call back here if in south shields purely as it is better tan most of the other crap places.

I’m so pleased that I found these letter in the Yorkshire Evening Post. It explains both why some drinkers eschewed bottled beer and reminds me of my youth. What’s being described is a autovac or economiser. A way of serving beer that was standard in any Leeds pub with handpulls. But ....

[QUOTE=sheffield hatter;83011]The problem is that the Magic Rock and the Slubbers are to the north of the town centre, while the Star and the Rat are to the south. What about a couple of extras in the centre for those who don't want to do the excursion to the north (such as the Northern Taps )? 1. Kings Head 2. Wood Street 3. Sportsman 3a. Magic Rock 3b. Slubbers 4. Vulcan 4a. Northern Taps 4b. Warehouse 5. Plumbers 6. Grove 7. Star 8. Rat & Ratchet 9. Head of Steam Then the additional walk is accommodated between the Sportsman and the Vulcan, with those that have done that extra bit then skipping straight to the Plumbers and the Grove.[/QUOTE] That's a good list of 13 pubs worth visiting with only the Magic Rock Tap having a problem opening time .So why not just leave the Magic Rock as a wild card,and visit the other 12 in the order shown .12 pubs is about an average hit list for these all day PuG crawls. Anyone not wanting to do the longer walks (to Slubbers and Star ) can spend a little longer in the Sportsman /Vulcan or Grove/Rat & Ratchet
