We arrived not long after 12.00 opening and obviously disturbed the disgruntled landlord in having to deal with customers. Loud music blaring out to no one elses benefit didn't make for a pleasant relaxed atmopshere.
Newby Wyke - Bear Island4.60AcceptableFirst out so could've been better had we stayed for another.

Early evening just one beer on offer. Quiet just a couple of others in upon arrival. Music far too loud made for an uncomfortable atmosphere.
Newby Wyke - Orsino4.00AcceptableFlat warm and rather sharp
