The Black Rat Pub Is privately owned and is not a chain. There are a variety of real ales which are rotated every week. Also lagers and wines available.
Previously a florist shop, this micro-pub (it has capacity for approximately 15 people!) opened in March 2016. A friendly welcome is assured and there is a cosy atmosphere. As there is no music, TV or games machines, conversation and banter is key. The pub offers a varying selection of four real ales, primarily from Yorkshire breweries and with one line dedicated to dark beers. Also offered are two craft keg ciders, four boxed ciders and two craft lagers along with a range of artisanal gins. It can be very busy first thing after a working day.
