Will Larter left this review about Yewdale Hotel

A multiroom Victorian hotel which serves real ales. Inside it's very smart, modern but comfortable. I found the background music irritating as it was at such a low volume - why bother? Music is not wallpaper. If you like music and you want your customers to hear it, then play up. If you're afraid of the sound of silence, then encourage conversation. End of lecture.

There were five hand pumps with four beers on at the time of my visit. I had the Tag Lag from Barngates, which used to be a favourite of mine, but I think they have changed the recipe as it wasn't as I remember it - I had their Cracker in another pub on the same trip and it was exactly as it said on the pump clip - a cracker. There's a Camra members discount here, but by the time the landlord had taken a couple of food orders I'd forgotten all about it.

Call me a stick-in-the-mud, but this still looks like a hotel which has bravely branched out into the world of real ale, whereas the Black Bull across the road is a pub that does accommodation. This just doesn't feel much like a pub to me - maybe it needs a bit of time to settle in. Like 100 years.

CAMRA Regional Pub of the Year. Must have been a tough choice - Coniston has some top boozers.

The beer here (Barngates Brewery) was very well kept.

A great visit blogged at http://bit.ly/2qTcrAT
