Open all day
This John Smiths pub has two rooms chock-a-block with memorabilia on the walls from about every source and period you can name.
None of it real of course as this is an example of what a brewer thought a Tudor pub must have looked like. However, the fireplace (not for use) came from York castle as did the wood panelling. There are comfortable bench seats around the walls which gives it the feeling of a small friendly boozer, which it is (apart from the loud shirts worn on this occasion by the bar staff - twins?).
Open all day it is not far from the Rose and Crown.
The extensive food menu is a good attraction here, it is placed on a blackboard in front of the lounge entrance. Fayre, served lunch and evenings, is traditional pub grub from about £4.50 upwards and vegetarians are catered for apart from the ubiquitous lasagne!
Three real ales are on at one time - mid week too! They were Duechars IPA, Old Speckled Hen and John Smiths Cask. Not sure about the last one, please try for yourself.
It also has a beer garden of sorts for the summer and benches out front. A step in required for access though not the smaller room.
Car parking can be found behind, follow the one way system back onto yourself.
Darts team and quiz night on Wednesday.
