First pub on the InnWay to the Yorkshire Dales. We were a bit concerned we might be early but at 11:23am on a Monday Morning, it was all good.

Lovely roaring fire to great us and the Landlord was a welcome start to the week.

Some photos at my walking blog -

Two buildings, one of fairly rough local stone perhaps dating to the 17th century, the other a more substantial 19th century affair painted off-white, make up this roadside hotel which is just a piton's throw from the prominent Wharfedale landmark of Kilnsey Crag. The right-hand building is the hotel part, with the bar and restaurant accessed through the lower door to the left. The bar is in a stone-flagged room with fake beams and a magnificent fireplace. A dining room to the front of the building is separated by a glass screen and there's a passage to the right to the hotel. Another door to the left admits to a second bar, but the hand pumps here were not in use, though people were sitting in here and it looked a very pleasant room.

On the bar were five hand pumps with three ales available: Copper Dragon Golden Pippin, St Austell Tribute and Wychwood Ginger Beard. The latter had amusingly been written up on the nearby blackboard as "Ginger Bread", but it was definitely a beer, and a very welcome, spicy and refreshing one too. There's a beer garden on two levels to the right of the more modern building, which gets some late afternoon sun despite the nearby overhanging crag.
