About the Pub

Located by the side of the River Skell with a fine view of Ripon Cathedral and the river from its large windows and riverside terrace, this is Ripon's only riverside pub, in fact so close to the river that it has been flooded in the past. An emphasis on affordable home-cooked traditional English pub food means it tends to get busy at times. The main area is laid out for dining, while there is a small drinking area near to the bar, and a snug on the left-hand side as you enter. Four cask ales are served and a popular Northern Soul event is held once a month.

NB. Significant mark up on half pints.
