Will Larter left this review about The Tickle Toby Inn

A modern bar stretching deep into the building, which looks like it must have been a coaching inn. Much reduced now, and with nothing much to distinguish it from countless others of its type, with cheerful furniture and grey-painted walls. A mixed clientele: groups of middle-aged women, mothers with babies in push-chairs, and a solitary cyclist having a swift half of real ale and writing a few notes in his book. There were three hand pumps on the bar, and my Black Sheep Bitter was in good condition. (The others were Copper Dragon Golden Pippin and Consett White Hot.) The origin of the name is suggested (by the inn sign) to have something to do with a highwayman, but I have seen another reference to it being a euphemism for a switch or whip (either for encouraging horses or beating small children).

Long room with bar to right. Four weak hand pumps, rest keg. Nothing special.

a very narrow, very long pub, basically coming in three sections, a front bar with a few tables in the window and to the side in a raised area, a drinking shelf runs down the side opposite the counter. Further back and down a level is another bar area with tables and chairs then behind that a large dining area looking a bit like a tea room. Each counter has three pulls and a range of keg founts, John Smiths cask appears to be the regular and Black Sheep Bitter and Golden Sheep along with Hambleton Stallion were listed as guests. The beer was in good condition served by on the ball staff even though the blandly uniformed waitresses were very busy with diners. In fact this Saturday lunchtime the place was heaving with people eating, the ages ranging from children in buggys to OAPs. Maybe it's different in the evenings but as the atmosphere was that of a cafe I prefered to drink up and leave.
