Regular beers: Samuel Smith Old Brewery Bitter

Built in 1472 as a timber structure, this grade II* listed building is one of only four remaining aisled manor houses in the county. Many original timbers may still be seen in the upstairs gallery. The main hall, reputed to be haunted, has a plaster ceiling dating from 1640. Joseph Priestley, discoverer of oxygen, lived here as a boy. Many buses pass through the town centre nearby. Sam Smith's policy is to keep their main draught product price low so excellent value Old Brewery Bitter is available, hand pulled from the wood, additve-free as are all of their products. Families welcome until 7:30pm. Excellent Sunday lunch with homemade puds, at a low price and with small portions available. Darts and dominoes every Monday. Quiz night.
