    Went to the Ball too! That was last Thursday evening, 8th Dec. We loved it, very impressed by the unaltered interior and general atmosphere.

    We were really lucky with finding a couple of excellent blues musicians playing FREE at very same the time that we were chilling with the lovely choice of beers then available ... :)

    Shame the Tap didn't work for you .... maybe it's more of a place for ale tourists ... :oops: :oops:

    The choice was fine when we were in, but we were waiting for a train last Saturday afternoon and maybe we were lucky ....

    Oh yes we did make the Swan as well. Lovely, yet-a-bloody-gain :( a fine ale choice, and as an added bonus it had a fire which he Slip didn't ....

    Now we're back in Swansea, and grumpy ... ;)

    Despite visiting York regularly I'd never heard of the House of Trembling Madness - now that is a name crying out to be googled! It sounds great - unfortunately, the last time I got to York all I got to drink in was O'Neills (yes, I know - flagellates self with imaginary real ale whip - and it wasn't my choice need I say!) and the houses of friends & relatives.

    The York Brewery pubs (Three Legged Mare, Last Drop & Yorkshire Terrier) are all good - I managed a drink in the Yorkshire Terrier over the summer but generally have to fall in with the choices of my nearest & dearest...........

    I like the Yorkshire Terrier and go there quite a lot if I'm actually in town, it's often busy but not packed, which given it's location is pretty good :)

    Got to the Last Drop, very nice, and York Brewery beers really are grand :cool:

    But we didn't have time to make the others :hmm:

    Well, you'll just have to come back again - had a quick pint in the Golden Ball just now on my way home from finishing my Christmas shopping :)

    Thinking of coming up again for the York Beer Festival next September if we can't make it earlier. Just a wish-idea at this stage though :confused:
