Ale house style pub with lots of bare boards and olde worlde seating, wooden panels and framed pictures. The barmaid was chatty & friendly during our visit. They were doing a reasonable lunchtime food trade and the menu looked good. The food that came out looked good as well, but we didn't eat here. 6 ales on the bar and a small, but decent selection of red wine available, so both Ms CAMRA and myself were happy enough. My pint was in good nick as well. All in all a very solid town centre pub.

It's only getting a five for the beers and that it is handy for the station, but if you want to leave town with a smile on your face, don't bother walking through the door. The bloke behind the bar was so disinterested in any new customers and if he smiled his face might crack. Beer on was two from Idle Brewery, Black Country Fireside, Black Sheep and Durham Magus which was ok.

Quick revisit today found a decimation in the ale range (four gone!) with no effort to put the replacements on. Bloke behind the bar was a bit humourless and not really with it, he asked twice if I was having a half but still tried pouring a pint anyway. My (two-thirds!) Theakston Old Peculiar was fine in the end. Telly screen stuck on static Ceefax footy score today. Ended up rather underwhelmed compared to 24 hours earlier, especially given that their competition at The Market were still on top of their game. Understaffed? Point knocked off their score.

Fortunately situated in the shadow of the crooked spire and nestling on the edge of the church’s grounds, this is a destination ale pub. My visit yesterday found eight ales with a really good selection. My halves of Dancing Duck Ay Up and Buxton Russian Imperial Stout were very good indeed and reasonably-priced. (£2.65 for a half of something 8%+ is reasonable to me, anyway). There was a heavy slant towards local ales (Brampton, Spire) and I also spotted Theakston OP; given that this place is apparently owned by Enterprise Inns, it proves what can be done. The interior is relatively recent-looking one though it’s actually fairly attractive - dark wood panelling and stripped wood floor. There are lots of ‘areas’, with large RSJ’s in the ceiling, suggesting that it used to be multi-roomed. Shame it isn’t now! As with its sister pub the Royal Oak, the piped muzak was a bit off-putting - can someone leave the Lighthouse Family back in the late 1990‘s please? Otherwise, the atmosphere was friendly and food was available, standard pub grub. Daily papers also in abundance, as well as a small plasma screen showing SKY news, quietly. Pub is handy for the station too.

If my last couple of visits are anything to go by, I’d say that all ale drinkers should make a point of visiting here - well-worth getting off the train for. Score 8.
