    Researching our annual trip to the Dales I made the discovery that Kings Head is once again closed and for sale. For various reasons we needed to rent a larger property-one was available in Gunnerside.The prospect of actually being able to walk to a pub sustained me since booking.Alas.

    I feel your pain. Was our adopted local, when we stayed in nearby Low Row. Makes all the difference when you can amble up the road from your holiday let. Oh, well. At least you'll be able to update your review of the Farmer's Arms, Muker.

    Learnt two things last night:1)plans are afoot to reopen the King's Head as a Community pub, and 2) more immediately of interest is the opening of a pop up pub in the village hall in the all- important awaiting the arrival of Ramsey's Fish and Chip slot van of a Friday evening. Beer is forecast.

    Interesting. Makes perfect sense in ensuring the long term viability of the place.

    Went out of my way to try the recently opened Watermans Arms Barnes again.9 beers on cask 4 brown beers 4 stouts and 1 black ipa.Too many beers for the turnover and even as a dark beer fan too many dark beers. Had a stout from Black Jack which was vinegar and returned it to get a slightly diacetyl flavoured stout from Arbor ,coudnt finish it and then last weeks beer of the week Tripple fff -jaberwokky which was in poor condition and wasn't finished.Had a free pint due on my loyalty card but saved it for another day.

    We usually try and manage a walk in the Dales between Xmas and New Year. Hopefully, we can make a short detour.

    Agree with you there. The first time I tried it I was very pleasantly surprised.
