On the main road through Wensleydale and with a very narrow entrance to the car park as Wittenden says it's a classic dales pub. The main room is split by a stone fireplace with the counter on one side by the front door, it's traditionally furnished with Britannia tables, some with four legs and there's bench seating and stools all round. There is a dining room at the back and the toilets are reached along winding passages. Six pulls on the counter, Yorkshire ales from Theakstons, Black Sheep and John Smiths alongside, usually one from near neighbours Yorkshire Dales and Salamander is very often stocked. There's a well stocked juke box and the pub is the local CAMRA Pub of the Year.

A classic Wensleydale pub:originally a monastic establishment dating from the middle ages with a warren of rooms and passages, this has been a favourite of ours for several years. The cosy bar opens out to a larger back room, complete with a well used dartboard. When we came in on a Wednesday lunchtime there was a smattering of good natured locals and visitors. We left our dogs in the car, but an immense labradoodle was making much of himself in the bar
The beer choice was somewhat more adventurous than is often the case in the Dales:Yorkshire Dales Muker Silver was a very pale,dry I suppose Silver ale-very drinkable.Salamander Brewery from Bradford offered Tower of Babel, a rather tasty golden ale in a series of biblically themed beers.Also evident were Black Sheep, and John Smith’s. Interestingly, this was selling well: I suppose its snobbery on my part, but I never touch the stuff-time to give it a second chance perhaps. There were various fizz founts for those of that inclination. Naturally, sparklers rule here, giving that wonderful settling –out ritual.
The food was good and honest, pleasantly served. We could happily make this pub our local: a rare accolade from us.
