Bunch of Grapes
'The restaurant of this pub, which is the flagship for local brewery Otley, features local foods and great service,' says Iain. 'There are also real ales from other Welsh microbreweries, ciders, perries and continental beers.' On the food side, expect lamb's kidneys, brawn, ox-cheek and fish options.
