Pateley Bridge 2/7

The Crown Inn on the main street at Pateley Bridge, Yorkshire is a 17th.century coaching house and is the only remaining public house along that street. We didn’t venture in for a meal or drink it being mid-afternoon while we were there but I will admit to enjoying John Smith’s ales given the opportunity at the right time.

This is a good-looking pub, Brian...I might be enticed in to a place like that...to sample the local.
Brian Walbey: And I'm sure you would enjoy the local ale as well Ray, John Smiths bitter is quite a tasty drink.
That's really a lovely building - I love the dark doorway, but brightened with the flowers!
Brian Walbey: Isn't it just and no doubt very old.

Wonderful framing Brian... they had to work hard to build the floors level in that old pub on the side of a hill....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Yes this is just one building of many on this hill as you will see tomorrow.

Isn't this a delightful building, full of charm Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes it is Chris, one of quite a few on this hill.
This is sooooo English, Brian! HA! I especially love the slope of the walkway out front and how the building adapts so well to it. smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, this is just one of several buildings on the hill, and although we didn't go in I can vouch for the quality of John Smith's ales.

I see that a little design thought went into those upper windows Brian.
Brian Walbey: They look rather good don't they.

More of a Sam Smiths man myself - but it does look like a nice traditional pub.
Brian Walbey: I'm sure it is a traditional pub Mike although being mid-afternoon we didn't go in. Sam Smith's just trumps John Smith's IMHO. but I wouldn't refuse a pint of either if offered, I wonder what our overseas friends would make of them.
I think I would have been tempted in for a meal and a drink Brian. Nice post
Brian Walbey: It was mid-afternoon Janet, not the right time for us, but we found a similar country pub near the farm where we were renting a cottage which was probably just as good.
Couldn't be more northern English, if it tried, Brian. smile
Brian Walbey: I won't argue with that Frank.
Looks very nice at this quiet time of day.
Brian Walbey: The whole town was reasonably quiet it being mid-afternoon on a Monday in May, but I bet in the holiday season it is quite different with all the visitors.
A proper pint of John Smiths is always acceptable Brian.
Brian Walbey: I can't argue with that Bill, or Sam Smith's as Mike suggests.

Yorkshire has a special place in my heart Brian, this looks a fine place
Brian Walbey: It is a fine county isn't it.

This is old merry England including the lovely flower pots! Let's hope that pubs like this one can be preserved -I like to have a lunch, for example ploughman's pie, in such a pub.
Brian Walbey: As Frank remarks it is a typical north of England looking pub and no doubt the food would be good as the beer definitely would be. Those flower pots are actually called hanging baskets, Maureen usually prepares several of them to decorate our house and garden each year during the summer.

hope the beer was as good ad the pub exterior
Brian Walbey: Being mid-afternoon we didn't go in Richard, but isn't it a lovely looking pub.
What a charming place Brian!
Brian Walbey: As Frank says a typical north of England public house in appearance.

I'd make for one of the teashops if it were me. I prefer a glass of wine to a beer usually but it all depends really. I had a nice glass of Adnams with Mr Trim last August. Good locking place.
Brian Walbey: Yes we prefer teashops to pubs, we're not teetotal but aren't bothered very much about drinking alcohol these days. Mind you nobody would turn down a pint of Adnams would they?
It looks a lovely building, Brian. I think I would have been tempted by a cool beer.
Brian Walbey: It looks nice from the outside but at mid-afternoon I didn't much fancy an alcoholic drink.
Me too, John Smiths is another favourite of mine.
Brian Walbey: Yes I like John Smiths, although these days I'm not too much worried about drinking very much beer.
I would have been curious to see if the inside was as charming as the exterior, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes so would I, but being mid-afternoon it wasn't pub time of the day for us.
