The White Bear at Stillington

This used to be a regular watering hole of mine years ago. On Monday night it was good to return, Phil has been the landlord here for 19 years and is well known for his love of great beers and certainly known how to keep a good pint. A lovely fire and a warm welcome this pub serve geninue food at very reasonable prices. It was the venue for the YO61ners which brings business people from the area together and the chance to win a bottle of champagne. And guess who won it .Moi - The event is organised by the printers in Easingwold G.E Smiths and the lovely Jo Burgess. Phil and his wife,Sue, have recently won Camra's pub of the season and was proud to tell me they are the only pub to have won it twice. So here you have another place to visit when you come to stay with us. And there is also a near non-existant feature of pubs now a days -the jukebox - so maybe you are in for a boogie on a Saturday night
