    Rather embarrassingly, only four definitely visited (Cover Bridge Inn, Aysgarth Falls Hotel, Lister Arms, Fountaine Inn), although I have vague memories of the Craven Arms and Falcon Inn. For me, the Red Lion is a classic example of a pub I always intend to visit , but invariably pass on the way to somewhere else!
    None for me but I do intend to navigate up the Calder Valley in late June to Summit before descending down into Lancashire.I'm expecting tip top ale on both sides of the Pennines

    Some gorgeous-looking pubs in beautiful locations. From the websites though, one or two of these look seriously over gastrofied; according to its website, https://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/55335/ was the original Woolpack from Emmerdale Farm, as it was known then.

    It's generally held that this one was the original with Amos Brearley and Mr Wilkes, before they moved the sets to a purpose built village on the Harewood estate. As the programme was made by Yorkshire TV in Leeds (interiors filmed in their studio next to Kirkstall Brewery), Esholt makes more sense as it's easier to get lots of gear and support vehicles to, however it's all good marketing true or not. Fun fact; Hotton is Otley, best drinking town in West Yorkshire.

    Most Dales pubs are gastrofied it's the only way to survive, honourable exceptions are the rough ones in towns plus rural oddities such as https://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/58503/ and https://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/68290/ but very few others.

    Does that mean you've sat in the beer garden of those three? Or just had a drink at the pub some time?

    If the former, I think there's only the Fountaine at Linton I can be almost certain to have sat outdoors with a beer. By the other criterion, however, I've had a beer at all except the Bull at West Tanfield, which I haven't even cycled past to take a photo.

    It's about time you did a bit of exploration, then. It's only a staycation for me and the other northerners, but it counts as a foreign holiday for you, without the quarantine.

    I detest outdoor drinking most of the time, so inside drinks at those three with no visits to any of the others although I've been past most of them.

    Most Dales pubs are gastrofied it's the only way to survive,
    Perhaps it had to be rebuilt in set as a result of it being destroyed by the plane crash?

    I don't really mind if pubs get gastrofied, but it's depressing when entering a pub to be confronted with nothing but 'reserved' signs and tables laid with cutlery and glasses, like The Perch Inn. Hipsterfied pubs are worse, when all heritage items are removed, the place seemingly modelled on the Lloyd's Building.
