Knaresborough 3 of 3

Remember while wandering the streets in search of refreshment keep a look out for paintings in the trompe-l'oeil style which are painted on some bricked up windows and alley walls.

Some examples of Knaresborough trompe-l'oeil similar to the one shown below.

What common drink was first named "Esteemed Brain Tonic and Intellectual Beverage"?


John Smith's cask is the favoured real ale.

Most pubs in market place do food.

Three Samuel Smith's pubs keep alive the lounge and public bar design.

Most pubs have beer gardens, but this often just means some tables in a back area which have plant pots.
