Will Larter left this review about Stumble Inn

A very nicely done shop conversion in a quiet backwater off the market street, with only a scruffy A-board to encourage custom. Consequently, the young bar keeper must have many quiet half hours like the one he spent in my company. Fortunately we were able to talk about cycling, snow in the Lake District and wild camping. And beer. There are five hand pumps with a good range of styles and breweries: the porter that I asked for was discovered to have "turned" overnight, and I decided to swerve the chocolate stout that stood next to it, going instead for Wensleydale Semer Water, which was in very good condition. This would be a comfortable pub to spend a little time in - there's plenty of good seating - and I hope the business keeps ticking over enough for it to survive, though 4:30 opening on weekdays limits the options as regards pub crawling.

This micropub was a former Insurance Brokers and before that a Fired Earth tile showroom. This is evident when you look at the array of different sections of floor tiles around the floor. Five pumps, with four in use on our visit, Wensleydale Semer Water, Rudgate Brew No 47, Taylor Illingworth Coal Yard and Roundhill Brewery Sorachi & Co IPA. The prices for their cask ales were based on the ABV and not overly priced eg 5.6% - £3.60, 6.7% - £3.70 and over 7% - £3.90. There was also a choice of 14 different ciders, the young barman was very friendly and chatty, well worth a visit.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Stumble Inn

Decent micro-pub in an pedestrianised shopping alley, with a 'L'-shaped seating area around the compact counter plus a few small tables out on the pavement. Limited decor, as you might expect, but with the focus on beer and conversation, this is hardly an issue. Six real ales on handpump, plus another on gravity from the cool room, all priced by strength, with three from Rudgate including the experimental Brew No 33 (£3.30).

A micro-pub tucked away in an arcade off the long high street. Six pulls with three in use on my visit, mostly beers from the excellent Helmsley Brewing and very well kept in fact the best during a multi-pub stagger round the county town. Roughly L shaped with the counter near the front and an area to the side, furnishing is traditional pub with britannia tables and bench seating. It's fairly typical of the breed for Yorkshire and probably takes pole position in a town of fairly ordinary pubs.

One L-shaped room with the bar in the right angle. List of beers on the wall. Decent selection of which I had Titanic Stout. Friendly barman who served me even though he was off shift. Worth a return in in the area.
