Real Ale Ray left this review about Dirty Dick's Ale House

A good traditional pub, with a selection of 9 ales and 4 ciders. This included a Dirty Dicks ale 4.2% brewed by Empire. The interior was mock Tudor, with oak panelling and a mock Tudor fireplace, Black ceiling beams and a pot shelf above the bar. The windows were leaded with some stained glass motifs. The Gents loos had the original Oates + Creen Halifax and London sanitary ware.
The pub attracts an older crowd, who enjoy a good pint of ale. We went for the Newby Wyke Grantham Gold and their Dirty Dicks ale, both were well kept.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Dirty Dick's Ale House

Impressive 'Brewer's Tudor' façade. Once inside, you find plenty of dark wood panelling and leather bench seats in main bar. There is also a smaller side room with a few pew-type bench seats. Very popular early on a Friday evening. Nine real ales and two ciders on handpump - excellent choice but opted for Stancill Barnsley Bitter at £2.30. Well worth a visit.

A very impressive range of 13 hand pumps is what catches the eye on entering this fascinating building. The exterior is quite an eyeful as well, in its local variant of Brewers Tudor. The original interior layout of rooms can be speculated upon with a degree of accuracy, though the long bar with 10 of those hand pumps now faces one large room. Two of those pumps serve cider, and there's a further beer available from a barrel chocked on the end of the bar. Visual interest is provided by model ships standing on the window sills and by the landlord's impressively sculpted beard. Aurally I found it more challenging, with loud music playing at the time of my Saturday lunchtime visit.
