Been in this pub yesterday, first time in years that I've had a drink in here.

The outside photos, note the moving cooper on the roof.

Another lovely SS pub and great photos. I see it has the posh menus at this pub. Seen some of the leather bound menus at northern SS pubs.
The opinions that I express are my own !! A Fan of SSOB products. Time for a pint of OBB

This pub no longer serves meals on the ground Floor.  Young Sam's orders I do believe.  I will make on comment on the logic of this move.

Leaves more room for drinkers I suppose. When I was 'down there' Saturday after Easter, got there about 10.00pm, it was 10 or so deep and that was outside.  :BL

spelling. :-*

Been there many times and walked past many times more, but never noticed that moving cooper.

Stout will be about ?3.40.  Sovereign will be around ?2.90.  These are the prices in the Princess Louise, Cheshire Cheese and Cittie of York.

I thought prices be the same in all Sam Smiths as ?3.40 a pint is a lot.

Nope.  Generally the prices increase the farther from Tadcaster the pubs are.

Yes, around ?1.10 a pint more expensive when I was there last June.

I remember being underwhelmed by the quality of the OBB in most of the places I visited.
