Originally called The Sebastopol after the Crimean War siege, this family-owned, mid-Victorian pub served the railway station until it closed in 1964. Regularly changing menus feature traditional classics such as fish and chips, and steak and ale pie, as well as plenty of alternatives, such as pan-fried calves’ liver, bacon crisp, kurly kale, mash and gravy; duck with Asian noodles; Shetland mussels and other seafood dishes. Vegetarians might strike lucky with wild mushroom linguine; or butternut squash and sage risotto. In the bar are Copper Dragon real ale from Skipton and Golden Sheep from Masham. Events include Thursday steak nights and open mic nights.
