We went here after a sun afternoon walk. Great choice of beers. Wood good and uncomplicated. Lovely bar area very quaint and welcoming. Kids and dogs welcome and would be able to relax as stone floor and no posh furnishings. Will be back.

The flying duck has a good selection of ales including its own Wharfedale beers and other beer from around Yorkshire. It is a nice stone built building with a fire in the downstairs bar and more room upstairs.
