Autumn is well on its way and whilst the beer gardens have enjoyed the delayed summer weather, we look at why rural pubs in Nidderdale are still worth a trip, day or night, according to TripAdvisor.
Pub goers drank in the sunshine during the final weeks of summer, and many last minute day trippers found themselves waiting for seating as beer gardens were full from Friday to Sunday.
Rural pubs are renown for holding onto a traditional style and keeping food simple, yet comforting, while making sure to produce a memorable pint of local beer.
Whilst Autumn maybe quieter, there are still plenty of reasons to be visit rural pubs, including nearby country walks, beautiful scenery, dog friendly venues, home cooked food and a warm log fire.
