Pub Walk No 7 – walk round town and then down to Kelham island area – this is a long walk taking in 14 pubs, I did this one on a weekend and best doing halves to get round them all.

This is an all day walk so best doing it on a Saturday which I did and best to drink halves as well. This walk is from quite a while ago so ignore the rain.
Red Deer – first port of call, I started here as I wanted to see what they had on, x1 cider and I am not sure what I had in here, I think it was a stout, plenty of seats on a quiet afternoon.
Cavendish – a quick walk to the next pub, the rain had started as well, had a pale ale here, they usually have x2 ales on cask, x1 cider and x3 on keg, guarantee sport is showing with back ground music.
Old House – a quick run across the road to the next pub, the rain started to turn into hailstones by now, I had the Sleepy Badger stout from Little Critters brewery, Sheffield new brewery and you can start to see their ales in other pubs, why not visit Fox and Duck and Doctors Orders to seem more from their range of ales.
Frog and Parrot – back across the road to the next pub, this one is always a hit and miss with ales, seem to see a few empty pumps crop up, I ended up having Moonshine by Abbeydale Brewery, quite busy was this pub.
Bungalow and Bears – I dont normally go in here as they only have 3 ale pumps, x1 is usually Doombar and other is sometimes Moonshine and the other tends to be guest ales, so I sometimes take the risk and had a Crossroads from Ilkley Brewery.
Museum – pop along to one of my favourite pubs, serving loads of ales for a Green King pub, have plenty of guest ales, I ended up having a Silverheart IPA from Yorkshire Heart brewery. You always get a couple of Abbeydale ales on as well.
Three Tuns – a short walk into this pub, oddly shaped building and fairly quiet, I had the Patrick from Great Heck Brewery which I always like, was in a Doombar glass but we wont go there.
Shakespeare – short walk to this pub, always one of my favourites and you never know what ale you will get, this time I had a Superior IPA from Fyne ales and at 7.1% I was glad no work the next day, great ale.
Kelham Island Tavern – next pub and nearly time for home, again you never know what you get in this pub, I ended up with Aussie IPA from North Riding Brewery, seating is hit and miss but did manage to get a seat to rest my legs.
Fat Cat – last pub and in here I had Ostrava from Rudgate Brewery, always nice selection in here and Kelham Island Brewery pub so you will get a few of their ales on. Another pub I need to try the food in it does look nice.
This pub wasnt on the original walk but you could walk over to the Riverside which is now a True North pub and has their ales on and a couple of guest ales.
Then a final walk over to Harlequin pub which has Exit33 ales on and a couple of guest ales. Always a great selection, I could spend all day in this pub.
