In the same vain the pub stocks beers from the local breweries. In order to keep the beer range interesting they work their way through a breweries full range of seasonal & regular beers. In keeping with the company 'style' wifi & newspapers are offered.

This freehouse, just West of Easingwold,  has been in the same hands for 20 years serving excellent ale and yet this is its maiden entry. It gives us faith that hidden gems really are still out there! Brisk trade means that the Theakstons is always fresh and a complementary guest is usually from the local area as well. A great place to spend the evening eating, drinking or trying the twice monthly quiz: the locals are even friendly enough to let you win, sometimes.

Many large towns would be envious of the choice offered by this village alehouse; the three guests, which regularly rotate, being usually from interesting local breweries. The reasonably priced Yorkshire fare doesn't impinge on the main occupation of drinking and socialising as well as the popular monthly quiz: try the snowball if you dare. Easily reached by bus from York or Easingwold it's well worth the trip.
