    The Pineapple - an old favourite, just so long as the god-awful hen parties are kept at bay.

    A really good month in the circumstances, with two difficult-to-get-to pubs standing out: in the runner-up spot, the Rhydspence Inn west of Whitney-on-Wye and at the top, the Cat Inn in Enville.

    Harrogate Tap
    Drink drink, whoever you may be,
    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    George Inn

    A pub in one of my favourite parts of the world, Upper Wharfedale. Only visited once before, when we (me and my partner and our young children) had a dreadfully poor meal on her birthday in 1995. We complained about it and even wrote to the brewery that owned the pub at the time (Theakstons, I believe) without redress. The incident left such a bad (I was going to say taste in my mouth) feeling, compounded by the fact that we split up not many months after, that I had never been back until my recent cycling/camping trip took me to nearby Buckden. Another cyclist who chatted briefly with me as his group passed me near Bolton Abbey said what a good pub it was, so I decided to try it. The tiny bar parlour has barely room for three or four people (with appropriate distancing - and there's another room for diners), and the bar had a perspex screen, but other than that the pub was much as it must always be. I was only going to have a pint, but my first glug of Black Sheep Bitter decided me to have a second and I'm glad I stayed. A brief conversation between me, two other customers and the friendly landlord revealed that we had all lived in Leeds at some stage, though none of us originated there. A trivial coincidence, but it was all part of making this a very pleasant pub experience. That and the beer, of course.

    No, far from it but it was a Monday afternoon, 4 other punters in the pub plus another 4 in the garden.

    Afternoon is the only time to visit that one. As I pointed out in my review of 25th August 2011. (What a long time ago that was. When a pint was just £2.95. In London.)

    The Ship in Brancaster.

    Beer was good, food was decent and they have the most sorted Covid systems I've yet come across.
