Excellent Castle Rock pub with two rooms. I went in the left side which was empty until an annoying woman came in, making all sorts of strange sounds despite her claim to prefer the peace and tranquillity of this room. Aside from that, an excellent choice of real ales, including Screech Owl, which was marvellous. Only downside was they didn't accept debit card payments!! Near the railway station so I will be back in tomorrow.

The Eagle is a Castle Rock pub with predictably two bars and a pool area at the rear. There's a choice of going though doors on the left and right as you enter and I went into the left room as it seemed quieter. This is a fairly small square room with a carpet and a dominant dart board. There were a few older blokes at the bar putting the world to rights.
The beers are split between the two bars with four Castle Rock offerings and seven guests. These were Ilkley Mary Jane Mild, Pennine 2017, Derwent Parson's Pledge, Maypole Celebration, Adnam's Mosaic, Hobgoblin and something I wrote down as Links Don't Be Bitter but can't trace. I went for Castle Rock's own Screech Owl (£3.30) which was excellent.
As expected from Castle Rock this was an excellent traditional pub, the only problem I had with it that all seven guest ales were roughly the same strength 4.0% to 4.5%. Maybe that's what Castle Rock punters go for.

A great range of ales in this locals pub which is only a couple of minutes from the railway station. The bar staff were very friendly and despite being very busy in both bars they still managed to keep an eye and serve in order of those waiting.

We only had one round as it was getting late so we needed to check into the hotel. but the ales we had were in good order.

A Castle Rock Brewery corner pub in cream and green, with a beer garden area. It is a GBG regular and I can see why. The interior has a couple of rooms, as well as a function room. There is a main bar and a small lounge. The lounge is where i started off. It is in blue and cream, with a white ceiling, small tiled fireplace and a collection of pump clips decorating the walls. The bar at the front is L-shaped and has a pool table, dart board, TV (not on) and pull down screen. The room is in cream and white, with a small fireplace and a red and black chessboard floor. Music was supplied softly via the radio. The service was great and the clientele consisted of friendly locals. Beer; well, Castle Rock Harvest Pale Ale, Screech Owl, Preservation Ale and Black Gold. There were 4 other pulls, with; Banks's Bitter, Bass, Craddock's Crest and Riverside Dixon's Hoppy Yeaster. The Black Gold and Preservation were in top form. A great visit and a pub that needs to be done if you are in the area!
