Rafters, Bradford

Is open. Had one handpump, a very decent Old Speckled Hen. Probably the best it has been for over a decade.

The Grey Horse, Birchencliffe

I arrived at a wedding at the hotel up the road 90 minutes early. Rather than drink keg at London prices I walked back down to this pub, that I noticed when passing.

So glad I did. Brilliant. A local's local, but friendly, with 4 real ales (including Bass, Landlord and a Jennings) and two large pens in the garden. One with guinea fowl, and the other with ferrets.

The pint I had was cracking, and the ferret pen was one of the most enjoyable things I have watched in a pub for a long time. If I was a Buddhist I know I would not come back as a higher being, but I would not mind coming back as a ferret at this pub. They have hammocks, ramps and a marvelous set of drainpipes. They were having so much fun I could not count them. I guess 5.

Rose & Crown, Ilkley

It was shut for a while but now reopened under new managership. No real ale, so not my kind of pub, but that sets it apart from most of the rest of Ilkley's boozers.
