Well described below this is a traditional, cosy and comfortable pub complete with plenty of interesting pub features and decorations including a selection of handtools around the fireplace, a warm welcome from behind the bar and friendly regulars.
The right hand side of the pub was being used as the dining room on our Wednesday lunchtime visit and was busy with diners clearly tempted by the decent menu and enticing specials.
The six beers on were: Brown Cow Celestial and Brown Cow Indulgence, Acorn Summer Pale, Rudgate No 33 Triple Hop, Goose Eye Barm Pot and TT landlord. Everything that we tried was in great shape and well poured in the northern style with a tight sprinkler.
The beer policy seems to be that a dark beer will always feature, Indulgence in this case, as will a beer from Timothy Taylor. Also worth noting were the two Brown Cow beers, both very good and brewed locally in Selby so I'd guess that there's usually at least one on from this brewery.
Well worth the trip from Selby and perhaps preferable to anything there.

A very traditional pub with plenty of character.There are basically two area,to the left of the front door is a seating area with a small bar access,fireplace and pictures all around the walls of the two squadrons (578 and RCAF 431) that operated from the nearby airfield in WW II .It's a fitting memorial to those brave young men.The other room is really for diners but has a very large brick fireplace which must give much needed warmth in the winter.The bar is in the corridor and the regulars gather around one end ,and on bar stools.They are a friendly bunch.
The interior has all manner of pub artifacts,bank notes,bottles,horse brasses,model cars,horns and jugs all kept free of dust by a very hard working cleaner I would guess.It creates a charming atmosphere and there are no screens or fruit machines,although commercial radio was playing but I can forgive that small error of judgement.
This GBG regular always has a rotating Timothy Taylor ale,will always carry a dark beer (well kept Brown Cow Indulgence on my trip ) and several Locales from the 6 handpumps.All ales sampled were in top condition,and I really liked the way that the barmaid drew off what had been sitting in the pipes before serving the first customers of the day.Despite mentioning it on their website,I saw no evidence of a large collection of single malts,maybe you have to ask behind the bar.We didn't eat,but the pub was doing a roaring trade with very tempting specials of the day besides a regular menu featuring many pies.
If I lived in the village ,I would be proud to have this as my local.It's worth the 10 minutes walk from the Selby Canal and you will be hard pressed to find a more authentic interior or real ale of this quality for many miles around.

Extremely pleasant roadside pub on the A19 where it crosses the bland flat plain. Two rooms, one with a pool table and some seating, the other larger room with some bench seating and tables and chairs for dining although the food side is not too intrusive. Six handpumps serving “Locale” cask ales, John Smiths Cask, T. Taylors Best, and four guests, on this occasion Grantham Dark, Acorn Barnsley, Goose Eye Barmpot, and York Constantine, my Dark was excellent. Usual range of kegs: John Smith smooth, Carlsberg, Fosters, 1664, Stella, Guiness and Strongbow. The main bar is decorated with the traditional plates and pictures but has an interesting and eclectic collection of 'stuff'. There is a large collection of modern beer bottles but also drinking steins, mincers, woodworking tools, and more. There is a small library of Good Beer Guides and other books including the alluringly titled “Toilets of the World” and some children's books. The pool room has a small collection of RAF memorabilia commemorating crews stationed nearby during the Second World War. The staff and customers are friendly, and all the hallmarks of a good local pub are apparent here.
