Jon B left this review about Merchants 1688

a trendy little cavern place with tunnelled rooms coming off a main bar. has a wide range of real ale and some will like it. for me it's vacuous, too cramped and attracts the snooty brigade like the place next door.

Thought this was a grand place for real ale. Not far from the railway station you pass through outside seating area to enter cellar like bar area with a couple of other cellar rooms going off from the bar. What a beer selection today though of varying styles and strenghs across all 10 handpulls. Beers from Settle, Avid brewing Co, Beer Brothers, Kirby Lonsdale, Blackedge, Coach House, Harbour, Allendale, Rudgate and Tirril.

A good, if rather cramped pub set within what amounts to a cave but is an old wine cellar apparently. There are 3 tunnel-like rooms one of which is as you enter and here you will find the bar. A decent selection of real ales from the 8 handpulls, of which 6 were on. Local ales and a good variety of styles. Outside seating at the front.
