Theakston Brewery’s flagship inn stands just a short stroll from the legendary brewhouse and market square in this bustling market town and provides the perfect base for exploring the Yorkshire Dales. Handsome and stylish, there’s a snug taproom for quaffing pints of Old Peculier by the glowing fire, oak-floored lounges with deep sofas and chairs for perusing the daily papers, and an elegant dining room. Menus take in bacon-wrapped pork fillet with black pudding and parsnip and English mustard purée; butternut squash and spinach curry; sausage and mash with onion gravy; and mushroom and sweet pepper risotto with parmesan crisps. Expect live music and 30 cask ales at the late June beer festival.
