Yew Tree InnCauldon
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Situated halfway between leek and ashbourne in a quiet village, this is possibly one of the most famous pubs in the country, and one of the few where even the local CAMRA committee would admit that the good real ale is the least of the attractions; the inside is stuffed to the brim with old antiques, guns, pianos, penny farthings, working pianolas and so much other bric-a-brac that it is impossible to list it all here. The guest beer can hail from any number of small breweries, Traditional pub food is now srved till 8pm winter and 9pm summer also pork pies and pickled eggs are always available; watch out for the pub dog, though. The entrance is dominated by the eponymous yew tree; truly picturesque and one every pub lover should visit one in a lifetime. Now serves a selection of German lagers and bottled beer. AWARDS: Staffordshire Moorlands Sub Branch Pub of the Season (Winter 2014). Staffordshire Moorlands Sub Branch Pub of the Year 2014 (Merit).
