Thanks to the Quaff & Scoff team who recently reviewed us on their website.
Here's what they said:
The House of the Trembling Madness is possibly the best pub I have ever been in. They have an absolutely phenomenal selection of local, British and foreign beers in the street level shop, which can be taken up to the tiny first floor pub to be consumed at leisure. This venue is a relatively new addition to York; unlike many of the central pubs this doesn’t have a history extending back towards the dawn of time. However, as the building itself is considerably older than the country of my birth, the room is all exposed, sagging wooden beams and mounted animal heads, meaning the air of authenticity is most certainly present. Between the huge selection of beers downstairs and the rotating selection on tap most tastes are well catered for, and the locally-sourced food is hearty and cheap. In short, we love it here – my only complaint is that the wifi moves at a rather sedate pace (and that’s probably a good thing given my iPad dependency…!).
Beers sampled on our recent visit:
Brooklyn Brewery Dark Chocolate Stout – smooth, sweet and smoky (and a mighty 10% abv)
The Wild Beer Co Wildebeest (stout, espresso, vanilla) – something of a sharper taste than the above, but rapidly became a favourite of mine (I. Love. Stout. The darker the better!)
