On a warm, sunny evening the beer garden was just the place to be.

Only a few customers but plenty of talk of Big Country, Glasgow bars and pints and nips (half and halfs).

Been coming here for many years and always like the friendly welcome. Beers are always well served and the Keith, the landlord, should be commended for expanding the beer range recently.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Timothy Taylor - Golden Best3.50ExcellentFloral, fruity aromas lead to fresh flowery flavours. Full bodied for its strength this is a classic light mild.

The pub is found in Nether Poppleton, North Yorkshire, YO26 6HS.

Typical village free house set back from the main road. Split into three comfortable rooms there is TV and jukebox but I've never seen either in use. Excellent beer garden with play equipment and some camping and caravan pitches round the back. Good value food available most evenings.

We have visited this pub 4 times, seen 3 different beers and tried 1 of them.
