Lovely 16th century freehouse is set in the Yorkshire Wolds. The pub name refers to the plot of open grazing land on Millington Pastures formally issued to each villager. Horse brasses on exposed beams and rural paraphanalia on every shelf. Note the very old Yorkshire map pasted to the ceiling, discoloured from years of smoke from the open fire. Separate pool room, regular varied live music evenings.

Busy village pub that is well worth finding. Refurbished and extended in 2008, but dating back to the early 1800s, the pub is now a spacious and welcoming watering place and eatery. There is a bar with a stone-flagged floor for drinkers, a comfortable lounge and a restaurant renowned for its quality food using locally sourced ingredients. Four handpumps are in constant use, with three guests often from local breweries.

Winner of many York CAMRA awards over the years, this pretty white-painted village free house on a bend in the road has been family-owned and well run for many years. Long time supporter of Fullers beers, it has a consistent but varied beer range, and serves excellent food in the restaurant every day, including many fish dishes. The bar, featuring a large Fuller, Smith & Turner mirror, is popular with locals. Another small bar with a serving hatch leads to the dining rooms. Occasionally a 2nd guest is offered on handpump and the ESB is served by gravity.
