stayed in the rooms at the back of this pub November 2012, had a few theakstons old peculiar's that day. Well kept, traditional pub. Locals seemed friendly enough. Not very busy for a saturday evening mind.

Nice bustling Theakstons pub. Three ales, the Lightfoot being well kept. Limited food menu on Sunday available all day. Friendly enough, and appears to welcome walkers with muddy boots! The only downside was that our meals were prepared in too much of a hurry, so that the vegetables were undercooked.

Nicely turned out and good smoking area but no atmosphere and not particularly friendly. Turfed out as they closed at 8.30. Beer not great but not awful.

Often written as "WYBMADIITY?" but the message is the same!

Low ceilings, dark wood, tiled bar, and victorian features combine to make a characterful pub with two bars. The beer sadly was chewy John Smiths Cask, the only ale available, along with the usual kegs. The two bars are broadly similar, to the right is more dining oriented and has a flag floor, the left hand one more sparcely furnished and has a boarded floor. Pictures and photos of old Knaresborough and a few brass nicknacks and horsebrasses in the normal pub style. There is a cryptic message over the door between the bars reading IYBMADIWTY! , I didn't get the chance to ask its meaning but it's more fun to make up your own anyway.
