Pub of the month, August 2015 – The Talbot Arms, Settle

A tough month, in the sense of choosing a pub of the month. We’ve been away on a couple of extended breaks, which has included lots of pub visits.

Suffolk was our first port of call, which included trips to The Kings Head in Yoxford:-

The Crown in Westleton (a lovely piece of skate, and some nice ales):-

and The Bell Inn in Middleton (classic village pub, thatched roof, low beams, a flint church tower visible out of the window, and with a classic character for a landlord):-

A couple of other pubs in the middle of the month, and then we find ourselves in Yorkshire, where we found ourselves in four great pubs on four separate nights.

Our first stop was The Royal Oak in Settle (lovely burger and a pint of Tether Blond):-

followed by The Lion (roast quail and several good ales):-

Next up was The Harts Head in Giggleswick (not a made up name), a lovely piece of gammon, several ales and a fun pub quiz:-

Today, the final day of August, the Talbot Arms swoops in to steal the title. A friendly and welcoming pub, lovely landlord, six ales on tap and a great selection of food.

We had a lovely meal here, and sampled all of the ales available. A really lovely pub, and easily the pub of the month, despite stiff competition!
