CAMPAIGN FOR REAL ALE

Award Winners

We are very proud to be multi-time award winners of the CAMRA pub of the year. Not only for the north, but also for the whole country!

GUEST BEERS, CIDER & LAGER

At the G&D we have a fabulous range of guest cask beers, keg beverages and real cider, mostly sourced from local breweries. We rotate and change them on a regular basis to bring you something different to try. Our selections follow the seasons.

Our current line-up

We have up to eight cask beers for you. Up to six of these are guest ales, mostly sourced from local and regional breweries. The remaining two are Wensleydale’s Falconer, a great session bitter, and Rudgate’s Superb Ruby Mild. We also have at least one real cider. 

While we are absolutely committed to cask ale, we also have an interesting selection of keg beverages for those who want something a little different including two lagers, a nitro-stout and an IPA

Shadow Fall

Porter

Shadow Fall is a really stunning 4.8% Porter. This rich classic Porter is dark, brooding and truly wonderful. We would say this is definitely one for the connoisseurs among us.

To The Regiment

Blonde IPA

To The Regiment is the first special of 2023 from the Wensleydale Brewery. It is a 4.5% Blonde IPA and is a real cracker of a beer. The Sticklebract and Azzaca hops really fill this with flavour.

Brown Malt, Amber Malt and oats have been baked (in the taproom pizza oven!) to release their biscuity flavour. This autumnal Brown Ale features richly-layered flavours of malt with a dry, clean and distinctly biscuity finish and an aroma of freshly baked shortbread and roasted hazelnuts.
