North Yorkshire Restaurants: 6 reviews and 9 photos
Black Sheep is a brewery founded by one of the Theakston brothers in Masham. The Theakston brewery was sold to Newcastle breweries and he could not live with this so he set up his own brewery in the same village. Thus, Black Sheep became the obvious name since he left the family business and on top of that we are in Yorkshire with all its sheep. The beers are all very nice, and found all over the many pubs in Yorkshire, especially in the Dales. You can go on brewery tours both here (see website) and at Theakstons too. I have not done that myself - some say it's too expensive for what it's worth and others love it.
Favorite Dish: Riggwelter - a strong brew :)
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: Between Ripn and Leyburn.
