This basement bar in The Mount Hotel is a little bit of Germany in the market town of Malton. Tastefully designed with wood almost everywhere. A nice touch is the tv screen behind a false window frame, complete with curtains, showing various views of mountains and other Germanic landscapes; I appreciate small things amuse small minds, but it is just something different whilst admiring this little bar. Some interesting table stools fashioned from upholstered tree stumps (there is a double-header if you want to cosy-up) and old tractor seats for bar stools. No hand-pulled English beer here. But an impressive selection of continental lagers and biers to keep you entertained. Chatty and friendly landlord who explained the tale behind the absolutely mad cuckoo clock. It is the result of three not working clocks being cannibalised into one "working" model. You have to guess how many times the bird calls each time it pops out. The hands on the clock bear no resemblance to the number of calls from this avian automaton. Well worth a visit for a different but pleasant experience. I'll be back, danke sehr!
