Red Lion - Burnsall, booked for next Thursday night.
Lucky thing, there is nothing better than being sat outside that boozer on a June summer's eve drinking their ale. I'm envious!
Cant wait. Going with the wife (Canadian and loves the Dales) and taking my mum as well, couple of days up there, pub grub, nice ales and gentle walks
Lovely boozer, as has been said; sat by the river on a summers day is f**king sublime. Loads of good ales on, great scenery. Appletreewick is just a nice walk away and again, quality drinks and views all round. Grassington's not far either, someone mentioned the fountain at Linton which does smashing grub as well as top notch beer. Thinking about it, you can't go wrong in most pubs in the dales, it's just ace. Have a brilliant holiday.
P.S. If you end up going to addingham don't forget to stop in at the old station for fish and chips, don't go to the other one; they don't batter their fish, they batter their children. No, but seriously folks, they fry in vegetable oil which is almost as bad. Also, aviod the crown, even though it used to be my local its gone badly downhill. On the other hand the sailor which I went in a couple of weeks ago for the first time in about 10 years was excellent.. if a little quiet.
