Richmond (Yorkshire) , con't

Here are the seven pubs found in Richmond Market Place

Most of the pubs in the Market place seemed geared up to busy weekends which start on a Thursday. Evening food, real ales, web sites are not needed if weekends busy!

The Castle Tavern had three hand pumps but not a drop of real ale over the week. Staff did not like you asking for real ale and turned away rather than see if you wanted something else instead.

Regular real ales are - Station Ale and Swale Ale (both Richmond Brewing Co); Black Sheep, Bitter and Twisted; New World

The Town Hall had a hand pump but not a drop of real ale over the week.

Disco was packed out to the street.

The Golden Lion had a hand pump and some real ale, serving Snecklifter.

Very quiet pub. It seemed perfectly good but was not attracting locals. Always seemed empty

 Have a pint here.

In The Bishop Blaize the real ale was off (all week). And it was clear I should not have asked.
