A fabulous family-run pub in the village of Brearton, just 10 minutes from Ripon. Serving delicious hearty food, with a great choice of wines and well-kept, hand-pulled ales.
The Bleiker family have run this 16th-century inn for the past 7 years, and have earned themselves a reputation for their great food and warm welcome. The pub provides a wonderful setting, with its open fires, beamed ceilings and flagstone floors, and all the food is cooked from scratch using the finest ingredients. The menu changes regularly, but always includes firm favourites such as Wienerschnitzel, Fish & Chips, and The Malt Shovel's signature Smokie starter. The pub is also famed for its fish specials - advertised on blackboards around the pub. Check the website for Sunday lunches with jazz, special musical evenings and other events. Open every day except Monday.
