Evening. I had been sent from the City centre via the Millennium Bridge by a helpful local person. With that feet aching detour lucky my rendezvous partners were still in residence. The open fire was welcoming but I was still steamin' from my route march.

19:15 A rare outing with Philip Pirrip and a mutual friend. A pub I hadn't visited for years and had forgotten how good it is. Superb little altered 1930s interior. Very welcoming staff. Pub was busy, mainly diners.

Acorn - Barnsley Bitter3.80GoodBit on the malty side
Wickwar - Gold4.50GoodPretty standard golden ale

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in York, North Yorkshire, YO10 4AB.

On Fishergate, a road going south out of the City centre. An eye pleasing building rebuilt in 1935 in Tudor style for Tadcaster Tower Brewery. Built then with 3 rooms but the 2 on the right were subsequently combined. Rear river facing terrace. 8 handpumps, 4 in each bar with duplicated pump clips showing the full offering. Re-opened in late July 2016 after 7 months closure following serious Boxing Day flood damage.

We have visited this pub 3 times, seen 6 different beers and tried 4 of them.
