a proper ancient pub that genuinely feels ancient inside. It’s well worth a visit for that alone but the well kept Old Peculier helps too. It has a big beer garden at the back which rarely gets full so this is an ideal spot for a warm afternoon. Food operation dominating today but of the traditional home cooked variety as opposed to tedious gastro.

A nice historical old pub, just far enough off the usual tourist trails to avoid the worst excesses and maintain a proper pub feel. A splendidly ancient old building - all beams, wood panelling and stone floors. There are three rooms off a central corridor: a good bar, a front room with a dart board (if you can shift the diners) and a front restaurant room, with more comfortable chairs. Upstairs there is a function room used for live music, while at the back is a fair-sized patio, partly under cover and with an overflow across the car park. The car park itself is not large and partly reserved during the day, with all manner of dire warnings posted, but is free for patrons if you can find a space, though do check at the bar. Beerwise there is a fair selection from Theakstons plus occasional others, such as York Guzzler and Landlord. Ale condition was good. Food is very good, very traditional (including such things as pigeon pie and rabbit stew) and in very large portions.
