The Five Bells

This is a most agreeable, relaxed, music-free, dog - friendly pub, with Bill and Joan offering a range of excellent beers and modestly - priced home cooked food. Accommodation is also available. Its very existence is proof that life in this frenetic century is still worth living.

Market Town Taverns

Robert Stevens recommends this chain of pubs which are 'spartan in their furnishing' with decent but limited range of food and 'excellent beer'. Typical is the Brigantes at 144 Micklegate York YO1 6JX
In their words, all are ‘un-themed but share several common features:-
A unique and welcoming ambience
A wide range of real ales from independent brewers
A fine selection of bottled & draught Continental beers
An extensive wine list
Good food prepared in-house
Daily and Sunday newspapers
Music-free bar areas in most taverns
Dogs are welcome

Fine old-fashioned pub in the heart of St James's

The Chequers Tavern is a rarity in contemporary London: a fine old-fashioned pub with reasonable prices, excellent beers, a wonderfully unmodernised interior agreeably battered over the centuries and cheap, simple food ('pub grub' describes it). All this in the heart of St James's recalls a vanishing London not devoted just to the pleasures and purses of the super-rich.
Note: a large TV screen and national flags suggest that football is at times broadcast.

Inn at Whitewell

This is a pub and restaurant with rooms.
I haven't stayed overnight.
The food and ale is worth going out of your way for, as is the scenery (The Hodder Valley) surrounding the pub.

Bridge Inn

A delightful pub at the end of a lane. Good ale (Wye Valley's Butty Bach is the regular one) and local ciders. And the food is excellent. Wood burning stoves.
The pub is beside The Escley Brook. There are tables in the garden, overlooking the brook.
There is also a campsite, if you don't want to have to make your way home after the Butty Bach!
