About the Pub

A former almshouse dating back to the 15th century close to the market square, Six Poor Folk was converted from a restaurant to a bar in early 2018. It now serves four real ales from a range of national and Yorkshire breweries. There are also four craft keg lines and a wide selection of cans and bottles from a beer fridge opposite the bar.

There are stools at the bar whilst a step down from bar level is a mix of cafe type seating as well as two leather armchairs fronting a gas fire in the winter months. An enclosed courtyard at the back is popular with drinkers in the summer. There are two further rooms upstairs.

The pub hosts regular events, including a quiz on Wednesdays, a DJ playing soul and funk music on Fridays and open mic nights on Sundays. Roast dinners are served 12-3 on Sundays.
