April 2011

Under new management and apart from better quality beer and the restoration of the pool table not much has changed. However Marstons are now keen to sell the pub to Sainsbury's as a convenience store much to the inconvenience of the regulars, there is a small campaign in the local paper and a petition on the bar to try to stop this.

A pavillion style building with what looks like a garden centre in its front courtyard most days, the adjacent bus stop on the 36 to Leeds route is named after it. A single long open plan room with a raised area in the front bay windows is equipped with benches and wicker seats and has something of an Edwardian feel. The rest of the room is a bit darker in trendy grey, cream and brown, with a bar area in more modern style. At the back are two smaller spaces, one unused the other with tables but appears to have a pool table at one time. The overal style and a range of the usual kegs reveals the target customer base to be 18-30s who can't be bothered to complete the journey to central Harrogate. In spite of the style, disinterested service and customer base there are 3 handpumps serving pretty reasonable Pedigree, with Jennings Best and Hobgoblin alongside.
