The Arncliffe Arms, Glaisdale

Went in here the end of August, pleasant setting at the bottom of the hill. Enter from the front and on the right is a pool room, on the left is a sort of dining room/overspill and a few paces further on the left is the main bar with the dunnies further on down the ramp. They had Beggars Bridge from the North Yorkshire Brewing Co. and Sunset from Captain Cook Brewery which were both excellent. Tim Taylor Golden Best replaced the Beggars Bridge which was also good. Guinness, Black Sheep Bitter and the ubiquitous lager and cider made the rest up. Plenty of walkers in scoffing their hard earned grub as well.

Scruffy Murphys, Middlesbrough

Now called O'Connells. Much more light and airy from the previous incarnations. No ale to speak of, just council lager, cider and beer. Should be good for a pre-match pint! The dunnies have had a lick of paint as well!

The White Horse Farm Inn, Rosedale Abbey

Visited last Bank Holiday Saturday, glorious views over the valley from the seating area at the front. They had Theakston Best Bitter and TT Landlord on hand pump (can't remember if there was a third!) and the usual range of council lager, cider and beer. Plumped for the TT Landlord, which was very good and served by a friendly barmaid. They do meals, but didn't look at the menu. All round, a decent pub and setting.

Unicorn Hotel, Ripon

This is now a Wetherspoons. Visited on 16/6/11, which was a race day and it was rammed. Place was mainly set out for diners but we headed to the beer garden out the back which was ok. Started with a pint of Old Growler porter followed by a Black Sheep Riggwelter which were both very good. Next was a Stonehenge Heel Stone bitter which was in good nick and then back to the Riggwelter before catching the coach to the racecourse. Nice place, plenty of beers to choose from and the service was fairly quick.

Isaac Wilson, Middlesbrough

Hadn't been in for yonks, went in Saturday dinnertime, usual off the shelf Spoons clientele, unusual barstaff, there were five of them behind the bar! First pint was a Burton's Stout, which was very nice followed by a pint of Black Summit (an India Black Ale) from The Ilkley Brewery. Magnificent! Next was an Exmoor Gold and then another Black Summit. A decent array of ales were on offer, can only remember Ruddles, with the usual 'Coming Soon' adverts on about 3 or 4 pumps. Enjoyable couple of pints, just wish a few other pubs in this area would do more real ale.
