A very pleasant spot for a pint of Black Sheep Bitter and a plate of local beef carpaccio - especially on a fine summer’s day

Provenance Inns go from strength to strength. The latest addition to the stable bears all their trademarks (good beer, many wines by the glass, a pleasing value for money menu and a big welcome) but this nicely spruced-up old village pub, just a mile from the roaring A64, feels subtly different. Maybe it's the moss green palette, the coal fires, or the tap room? Whatever; it's a very pleasant spot for a pint of Black Sheep Bitter and a plate of local beef carpaccio, or the cracking Crown & Cushion pie. Gird your loins with treacle sponge and custard if you've planned to take advantage of one of the wonderful walks from the door. Outside, a flagged, be-shrubbed garden, a lovely place to sit out on a good day, with long views across the rolling Howardian Hills.
