Our Favourite Hairy Bikers Quotes

We’ve had an incredible response to our special visit from The Hairy Bikers, aka Dave Myers and Si King.

The duo visited us as part of their BBC series, The Hairy Bikers Go North. Although we filmed the scenes back in August 2020, it was recently shown on the BBC (if you haven’t seen it yet, you can watch it here – we’re on from around 12 minutes). They visited our award-winning brewery and tap house as part of their quest to find the perfect beer, in preparation for making a “traditional northern pie” – steak, mushroom and ale, with locally sourced ingredients.

They said some fantastic quotes, here are some of our favourites!

The North

  • “The north has always had a reputation for producing top-quality beers – some of the best beers in the world, in fact.”

The Royal Barn

  • “People will travel for miles to get a taste of their amazing beers.”
  • “It’s a real heart of the town, isn’t it?”
  • “It’s like a temple for beer.”

Our Tasting Paddle

  • “I’ve died and gone to heaven.”
  • “Look at that – that is a thing of wonderful, wonderfulness.”
  • “They’re all perfect, aren’t they? So, you’ve got everything from pale ale, stout, best bitter, golden ale.”
  • “Cheers – here’s to Kirkby Lonsdale.”

Tiffin Gold

  • “A nice and light gold ale.”
  • “I could drink this all night.”
  • “That is so delicate, isn’t it? It’s light, but it’s floral.”


  • “That’s epic.”


  • “A little caramelly at the back.”
  • “Got it in one, Kingy.”
  • “By crikey, that’s a really, really good honest bitter.”
