My wife and I stopped by the Rook & Gaskill while in York for a few days... We were thoroughly impressed. It was a no-crap on tap pub, with 12 handpumps serving up hard to find cask ale. The publican was very knowledgable, and strongly opinionated about beer. He just ordered a number of american casks for a bit of a festival, and basically held everything to the standard of being Punk IPA or better. Clearly, this is a key site in England's craft beer rennaisance.

Oh, and that atmosphere bit. The pub is decorated with cask handle logos all of the ceiling, etc, indulging in a bit of excess but it makes a strong statement. The pub feels a bit punkish, but is quite welcoming.
