HA’WAY HAWORTH

Another short post for you to consume between meals. Or pints.

I only know what’s next because my photos are in alphabetical order.  After the Salopian adventures I had virtually a whole week away from pubs, selling essentials like these at our annual charity sale.

Something for everyone, I’m sure you’ll agree.

But I nipped up North in the middle of all that to complete West Yorkshire, always a great pub County. Or part of a county.

Haworth

My first trip to Haworth since that hottest ever November day, and what we in the ticking trade call “a flying visit“. I think this was taken on the run.

Haworth rarely stars much in the Guide, but then neither do other tourist honeypots like Stratford or Stow or Spennymoor.

But the pubs are what visitors expect Yorkshire pubs to look like, and you can be sure of bumping into a poodle or pashmina in most of them.

Ah, that’s better

The King’s Arms is a bit packed. To its credit there are as many folk younger as older than me, always a good sign.

Bench seating oddly shunned

The bar flies are out in force, so I have to guess which beer to have from a list of characters from a book I’ve never read.

“What sort of beer do you like”

Charlotte, please“. A nice name for a beer. A nice beer, too, cool and rich (NBSS 3.5+).  But you know what a fan of novelty home brew I am.

Just for a change, no pot plants were harmed in the production of this post.

  1. More of those pretty West Yorkshire names to delight the map studier, I see, Martin. Bottoms, Lumb Foot, Hole, Scar Top, Cold Knoll, and Black Leech being amongst them…

      1. “Russ needs to get Bing maps up and search for weird names at his leisure ”

        To be honest I actually do that at times. But lately ‘leisure’ is a mere wisp of a dream. 🙂

  2. “Or pints.”

    That. 🙂

    “selling essentials like these at our annual charity sale.”

    Blimey. That was indeed very charitable of you.

    “I think this was taken on the run.”

    It’s too perfectly aligned horizontally and vertically for that.

    “But the pubs are what visitors expect Yorkshire pubs to look like,”

    I blame those Brontosaurus sisters.

    “so I have to guess which beer to have from a list of characters from a book I’ve never read.”

    See!

    “Just for a change, no pot plants were harmed in the production of this post.”

    Pfft. Watering a plant never does it any harm.

    Cheers

  3. One of 11 left in West Yorkshire for me, though must be the only pub in Haworth I haven’t been in.

    If the beer is called Charlotte at least I have an excuse…
