Old Boots left this review about The Water Rat

Large pub with a conservatory next to the river Skell,so close in fact that it has been flooded in the past. Formerly called the Alma, it used to belong to the same people as the Nelson, which became the One Eyed Rat - the then owners being "Rodent Inns". Basically open plan but with a dark secluded area with sofas by the bar, a brighter area with lots of seats and tables as food is a big part of their business, the afore mentioned conservatory is also set up for dining and there is a little snug type area by the front door. Three handpumps with Black Sheep bitter, Deuchars and Adnams in reasonable condition.
