This is a really friendly B & B that is superbly situated in the middle of Dent. Our room was very comfortable and warm with all the usual facilities. The food is excellent - full English breakfasts and all the usual cereal's and we had evening meal twice. The portions and quality is excellent. There is a lovely atmosphere within... More

Popped in a couple of times during a short trip there. The first night there seemed overkill with approx. 4 staff and no customers. The second night we returned intending to eat there. After arriving and being stood at bar for five minutes, eventually someone came in and served us. We didn't feel very welcomed and almost a hindrance as... More

Really nice place. We were a party of 6 plus a todler and were warmly welcomed and offered a high chair. The pub was fairly busy but the service was good and the staff friendly. We all had food which was very nice and served in good time. Husband really enjoyed the selection of local real ales!

Its a pub with rooms, and I stayed there earlier this month (drop down option below doesn't give November as an option) with 3 other mates, cost £80 each for two nights B&B. Couldn't fault the rooms for the money, and the breakfasts were superb. We all had loads of the Aviator beer so it must have been good. Ate... More

The pub is at the centre of this attractive little village with its cobbled streets and is easily found. Arrived after a long walk from Ingleton over Whernside on a hot day.

Stayed here whilst on Dales Way walk. We were met by disinterested staff member - but he did improve as he was informed that we were staying the night! Evening meal and breakfasts were good. However, the bedrooms and corridors had pervading "doggy" smell - reason for low rating. Good beer.

Thank you for you review. Sorry to hear that you found our member of bar staff disinterested, I can assure you this isn't the norm. Again sorry the smell in the corridors, this was as a result of turning a number of heaters back on in the corridors. Thank you for comments regarding your meals and I'll pass on the... More

We had a very good meal with friends in a warm and friendly atmosphere. The Dent brewery is in the village and the aviator beer was excellent.

This hotel/pub is just yards from the Dales Way trail. We had one Saturday night there and it was very busy.

The location of this un pretentious pub could not be better. The staff here were very welcoming and helpful. The food was just what was needed after a whole day walking. The room was large and well serviced, clean and had good wi fi.
