Night Reviewed: Tuesday
It was time to make another trip to this slightly out of the way boozer, situated opposite Skipton Police Station.
As we entered we soon realised that we were the only punters on this dark, cold winter evening. The curtains were all closed and most of one half of the pub was in darkness, save for the illumination provided by the giant screen, upon which Eastenders was being projected with the volume on full blast…….it appeared we were interrupting the TV viewing of the bar lady.
To be fair though, if there’s no customers, why sit twiddling your thumbs when you can watch a giant, sweaty, High Definition version of Phil Mitchell? After a couple of other drinkers arrived, the TV went off and the pub was returned to silence.
As for the rest of the pub, the Tetleys wasn’t too bad and the decor was unchanged from last years review.
We noted that the open fire and resident pub cat both gave the pub a more homely feel, but overall there’s not a great deal else to report from this one.
