The Black Sheep Brewery

Wellgarth, MASHAM, HG4 4EN

Set up by Paul Theakston, a member of Masham's famous brewery family, in the former Wellgarth Maltings in 1992, the complex includes an excellent visitor centre and a popular bar-cum-bistro. Don't miss the fascinating tour of the brewery. Next take in the wonderful views over the River Ure and surrounding countryside as you sup tip-top pints of Riggwelter and Golden Sheep; then tuck into a good plate of food, perhaps steak and ale pie with hand-cut chips and seasonal vegetables; locally made Hog and Hop sausages, sage mash, onion gravy and vegetables; or an oak-smoked salmon and prawn sandwich.
