Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Bishop Blaize

One of the many pubs on the historic Market Place, this one looks quite unobtrusive compared with the more obvious up- and down-market appeal of the remainder. The seemingly little-altered arrangement of different rooms on each side of the central corridor certainly appeals, although some character must have been lost through refurbishments over the years. Also has a beer garden with gravel under foot at the back, right in the shadow of the castle's imposing tower. Now just has a pair of handpumps, offering Doom Bar and Wainwright.

Will Larter left this review about The Bishop Blaize

Unusual in retaining its original layout despite the awkward placing of the bar in a narrow part of the building between front room and back, this pub has a very old fashioned feel to it. Handily placed for the bus stop (I was catching a bus to Darlington after my brief stop in Richmond), it's one of more than half a dozen pubs on the large central market square. The small front room has barely enough space for a couple of tables, though there's a larger room to the left of the central corridor and another small room to the rear with a pool table. The back door near the toilets had been left open and I caught a glimpse of a sign in the alley pointing towards it which said this was the oldest bar in Richmond - something that I would have thought worth proclaiming at the front of the pub.

On the bar were three hand pumps: York Terrier and Timothy Taylor Landlord plus a new one for me - Truefitt's North Riding Bitter, brewed in Middlesbrough. It would be good to have more time to explore Richmond's pubs, and this one certainly merits a second visit.

Old Boots left this review about The Blaize

A slightly dowdy traditional exterior belies an eclectic interior, the room layout is probably as built with a central corridor serving rooms off to the side. To the left is a dinning room while the bar to the right is remodelled in a very modern style with the counter stretching back through an increasingly narrow space. The landlord is a keen ale man and this shows in the quality of the beers and a couple of CAMRA awards behind the bar. Definitely GBG material this pub isn't in the 2012 edition but I would expect a 2013 entry. Choice of beers is limited, Taylors Landlord as a regular is backed up with two changing guests from across the UK but mainly from regional or larger micros, beers from Wells & Young and Hook Norton being available on this visit which won't be my last.
