Will Larter left this review about Little Three

The pub sign and everything else about this pub gives its name as "Little 3", though I've not seen anything yet that explains the name. They're big on Yorkshire beers, though the beer I went for (Thelonious Punk) was brewed by Three Brothers of Stockton on Tees, which is not in Yorkshire (though doubtless would prefer it if possible). Above the bar is a plug for BAD Co Brewery, though none of their beers were available. Those that were: Theakston Best Bitter, GreyHawk (former Copper Dragon) Pippin, Pennine Festival Fuel and the aforementioned Three Brothers beer. I was surprised how bland this beer was: a 4.5% IPA with very little malty flavour and not much from the hops apart from a little residual bitterness (a bit like the Theakstons, then). The most interesting thing about this beer was the name, the second was the pump clip (see photo).

The pub has been done up inside to look as though it has not changed one iota since the 17th century, though my guess would be that the building was not here in the 17th century. The ceiling has been painted that colour that white ceilings used to go when smoking was allowed in pubs. My notes made at the time say "faux old": you get the picture. The floor is unmistakably modern wood, and so is the rather handsome bar counter (which has hooks!). There was background music playing which was above average for quality and interest. There's no mistaking the enthusiasm of the people running this pub, but I'm surprised, as I said before, that there's nothing on the beer front out of left field. Perhaps bland is what sells in Thirsk.

One dimly lit room with the bar to the left hand side. Four or five hand pumps but nothing of any strength. Would be a lot better with some decent ale on sale.

Taken over by West Park Inns who own a number of pubs between Thirsk, Knaresborough and Easingwold. They have given it a total makeover with the counter moved to the side and given the place a half timbered interior. There's also a brasserie upstairs. Furnished with traditional comfy bench seating, brown chairs and wooden tables with cast iron bases and stools including a couple of tractor seat conversions. Beer quality was average but the service good. There's a 10% Camra discount, and free wifi. Six pumps with beers from Rudgate, Wharfebank, Taylors, Ilkley and Theakstons and lots of interesting pump clips behind the counter. Still one of the better pubs in Thirsk.
