Ooh oh I’ve been to cask down flashy’s way, it’s rather good! I err, think….
Int ‘north, it’s gotta be the sportsman in Huddersfield, couple of years since I’ve been, but it’s bloody good. Actually, all the locals where I used to live (the woodman at thunderbridge, the golden cock at farnley tyas, the white hart at Denby dale and the rose and crown at thurstonland) were ace.
*thinks very seriously about moving back…

It’s in Muker, in Swaledale, North Yorks.
Manages to pull off the trick of being a decent pub for both tourists and locals – really well kept beer, reasonably priced, well cooked, tasty food, real fire, friendly staff, great atmosphere.
It’s a pretty amazing place to ride an MTB too: Really interesting trails that anyone can ride, drains well, loads to go at, stunning views – up there with Snowdonia and Northumberland in my top 3.
Might be up your way in a couple of weeks if you’re up for a spin?Posted 4 years agouser-removedMember
The Stables; we actually bought our house partly because this pub is 10 minutes walk away through the fields. Proper old mans’ pub with huge open fire, fantastic food and it looks like someones’ house from the outside… Landlord ale, Stella for mid-dog-walk pints on a hot day, random guest ale
Incredibly welcoming in the winter, whether you have a muddy dog or a muddy arse – that fire is a God-send.Posted 4 years agospasmic gherkinMember
where for a fiver you get…
Getting giggy in brum:
special mention to the Welly (Freemantle, Southampton) for when i’m down there, the pub by the weir in crickhowell (sp) wales for the ace food and beergarden, the old joint stock in brum (jaws drop the first time you take folk in there), and on the off-chance it still exists, the Spread Eagle near leicester train station – in ’99 i bunked off college to go to the demontford open day with a couple of friends – we ended up in there – still the only place i’ve ever seen the offspring’s self titled album on a (proper) jukebox. which reminds me, the rockstation&talbot in stourbridge for facilitating my angsty late teen yearsPosted 4 years agomtMember

Had a think about all the pubs I’ve been to and decided these are my favourites.
Long time favourite- filthy, smelly and has at least 2 willies in the bathroom but welcoming and always fun.
Ha Ha the Nook may have great beer but its one of the only pubs that got worse after the smoking ban. Have you been to the Cricketers at Deabhouse?Posted 4 years agopihaSubscriber
The Donkey at Tilford.
Nothing flash or fancy but always a warm welcome, even when dripping in mud, water, ice etc (complimentary towels offered to clean filth from face). Large good honest food portions for us bikers, gratis crisps, nuts or sometimes chips at the bar post ride. Try before you buy if they have a new beer on. Oh, it’s a blessing the Donkey isn’t within walking distance from my home!Posted 4 years agoska-49Member
The Pandora Inn, Mylor, Cornwall. Had many birthday parties, celebrations and a graduation there..
Chainlocker, Falmouth, Cornwall. Special spot in the harbour. Lovely place.
Jacob’s Ladder, Falmouth, Cornwall. I lived next door so got mates rates, an annual tab, home delivery and lock ins. Awesome hippy spot.
It was at the top of these steps from town.. Lethal after a few Old Rosies at the pub on a winters night.
Edit: I use to work at the Old Bell, Aldworth. Wonder how many of you I’ve served 😯Posted 4 years agoscott_mcavennie2Member
This is my local:
popped in there for many a quick pint on the way home from work and crawled out at 5am the next day.
Use it less now, as it is more like a restaurant nowadays. Sitting on the veranda overlooking the river on a warm summers evening is still one of my all time favourite places.Posted 4 years ago
