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 venison haunch, black pudding croquette, betroot salsify and red wine jus; duck breast with brown butter fondant; salted cod and other seafood dishes. Vegetarians might strike lucky with spiced pumpkin soup; or butternut squash and sage risotto. In the bar are Copper Dragon real ale from Skipton and Baa Baa from Black Sheep in Masham. Events include Monday quiz night, Thursday steak night and monthly open mic night.
