Night Reviewed: Wednesday
There was a good reason for leaving this review until last as we had had a less than satisfactory visit on our previous survey, so it wasn’t a visit we were looking forward to and we had even considered only ordering half pints.
Entering the pub, the beer choice was the standard fare of non-real ale pubs in Skipton, with Tetley’s Cask and John Smith’s processed rubbish. With Tetley’s the only choice, pints were duly ordered and our seat taken. There were a reasonable number of punters in, good music playing in the background, the pub was warm and had been repainted since our last visit and most importantly, the beer was good – things had definitely improved since we were here last!
The music took a turn for the worst when the other punters went out to have a smoke and the CD was changed to one featuring the Spice Gils and Hanson, and it transpired after a while that the pub was overheated rather than just warm, but then I guess that’s preferable to being under heated.
A definite improvement, but it’s still not going to be a regular haunt for us.
