We interrupted a dominoes tournament: a rowdy group of seniors were playing for money they had put into a pot.
Here's a picture of Linus taken while looking towards the rear of the bar. The guy playing darts works at the nearby Rowntree candy factory, drilling holes in mints to make their equivalent of a Life-saver.
Linus is drinking a Wells Bombardier Ale, while I sampled a Black Abbot stout from Idle Brewery, a true micro. Linus's beer was better.
