I'd been visiting this pub since I was a child, through the 80's, 90's, and up until 2006/7....always loved it there and had very fond and precious rare memories of visiting with my mum dad and gran when alive. Iv always had working dogs, And so would walk all the quiet routes I knew about goathland & surrounding villages, then head to the pub! I started going with my partner As soon as I met him as i couldn't wait to show him my favourite place in the whole world....and after a lovely peaceful walk we were ready for a drink, it was a lovely hot day. Sat on the bench seats as you walk up the steps to beer garden facing my partner. Was cuddling each other and saying how sleepy we felt with the heat, along comes the wretched landlady and tells us to cool off! As if I didn't feel embarrassed enough at that (as she said it infront of some people we were sat next to), she then started walking off pointing towards the woods, saying "there's plenty of promo in there if that's how you want to carry on"!! I could have died!! I was so shocked I didn't even try to defend ourselves. I have never since been or felt the same way about the place again. So sad. Loved going there and remembering my dad n the good times we shared.
