Eight of us enjoyed the upstairs area for a while mid evening. The prices here continue to surprise: from 3.80 to £12.50 a pint - with their own Pale Ale (Another Brick), only 5.5% at a staggering £7.50 a pint. 13 cask and craft beers on the board. Fell Uncharted at 4.0 was good but Roosters Scrambler also at 4.0 was better.
Fell - Ghyll3.70AcceptableNothing special.

I nearly missed this place because it looks like a shop and is next door to a traditional pub. Fell brewery have done a good job here and I really like the place. A good crowd of regulars and friendly bar staff.
Fell - Tinderbox IPA6.30ExcellentA nightcap before heading towards my hotel across the road.
Fell - Dark Mild3.50GoodA bit thin and unexciting.

Two evening visits either side of a very acceptable pizza in the nearby Italian. The pub was busy, with a quite a few pints disappearing upstairs where the footie was on. 13 cask and keg beers on the blackboard from £3 to £10 a pint - they will never believe this down South. Very enthusiastic manager/landlord who gave me a taster of the tenner ale from Denmark.
Pomona Island - APA5.30ExcellentA very fine APA
To Øl - Black Malts And Body Salts9.90ExcellentJust a taster of this double, black, IPA from Denmark. Yummy - but at £10 a pint it should be very good.
Fell - Session IPA4.50GoodOn keg - didn’t notice that when I ordered and clearly a dead but fizzy beer. Great flavour though.
Fell - Simcoe Ekuanot 4.20GoodUnfiltered, fruity.
