Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Welly has been one of the places we have missed the most over the last few months. Philippe, Christine and the the team do a sterling job.
Located in an amazing position overlooking the dales, you always have a friendly welcome and an excellent pint every time.

From superb Sunday roasts to hot sandwiches, great seafood and their latest introduction of a pizza oven, you have an amazing choice to pick from.

Again fully complying with new Covid precautions, floors are clearly marked, there is a one way system and hand sanitisers are freely available.

Great to walk round the local reservoirs and then to call in for lunch. Plenty of outdoor seating as well. A firm favourite with our family.

Just returned from two nights stay at The Wellington Inn.
Room was large with a seating area and although not the most modern it was extremely comfortable. Bed was huge and cosey , had two great night's sleep. Once the bar has closed it is very quiet, good location for trips to Harrogate, Ripon and Thirsk, some great walks around as well .
The breakfast was great complimented by the attentive staff, who always seemed to be enjoying their work and who could not do enough.
The food was above what we were expecting, mashed potatoe was the best and the baby squid was tender and crispy with the lightest batter. Seared beef fillet with asparagus and the bed pie was the best ever pie I have eaten.
Will be back to sample the log fire and pizzas in the huge oven on display.
Thanks for making our stay a great sample of Yorkshire.

Just enjoyed a long weekend here and we were very happy with our stay.

It's well situated on the main road as you arrive into the pheasant village of Darley. It has a huge car park and very pleasant beer gardens to both sides, all with views of the Dales.

We were welcomed in by Christine and her excellent team, and shown to our room. Everyone was suited and booted with proper PPE in line with the new Covid regs, and there were adequate supplies of hand gel. They'd also got a one-way system which was gently enforced.

We had all of our meals here (not much choice locally for alternative pubs) and the standard was very good overall, our only issue was a rather bland ("tasteless") gluten free pasta meal that my wife had, but otherwise good.

Our room was fairly basic but had everything we needed. Might be worth noting that as our bedroom was on the ground floor, then it would suit people with disabilities, as residents have a separate entrance and this being straight from the large car park.

We used the pub as a base from which to explore local Dales as training for a forthcoming long distance walk, and we feel we made a good choice, there is the River Nidd in the valley and the Nidderdale Way walk. We did a few miles of this walk, plus we also trekked up to the geologically unique Brimham Rocks, the latter I'd urge everyone to see!

We were very impressed with the staff at the pub and we'd give a shout out to Emma and Charlie who were both hard working and very nice, and my apologies to the other staff who I've not mentioned by name.

So a great place to stop for a weekend, popular with the locals and clearly child and dog friendly, so it's a 'proper' and unpretentious village pub that is a bit of a rarity these days. We'll definitely aim to stop again.

Had dinner here for our last meal of the holiday and have never received such poor service in my lifetime so much this is the first time I have ever gone online to complain about anywhere before only due to the fact the manager at the establishment clearly does not care about how his customers are treated. We sat down for our reservation at 1930 and was given zero menus for either drinks or for our food? After 15 minutes of sitting the waitress came over to take our order which we then had to ask for our menus ? Ordered a Amstel beer, when it came it tasted bland so decided to switch it for a Moretti, again it was delivered tasting very bland and tasteless I said to the waitress after an hour as my dinner arrived ( as nobody came to see us in-between) not to worry I will have a water and I returned my full beer to the bar. After an hour the mains arrived ( we had no starters) we had the fish and chips and the chicken breast as we was told after ordering the pies were out (fair enough) The meal was okay and had no issues here. We finished our meals to sit for another 30-60 minutes in the conservatory awaiting for the plates to be removed we was asked if we would like anything else to which I said no thank you as we have already been here around two hours can I have the bill please. Earlier on the waitress said the manager would come and see me about the beers I presumed to apologise or understand what the issue was? He never arrived. When the waitress came with the bill she said 'oh so you did have a amstel' I said no? she asked 'where is it then? looking at the empty amstel glass my boyfriends water came in' I said ' my boyfriend had his water in a pint glass' ' Oh ok that's £28.50 please' No apology for accusing me of lying? I asked to see the manager to which he was also rude and gave no apology for the fact we was in the restaurant for two hours, both his beers are clearly off, both the items we ordered originally were sold out? We were given no menus and then accused of lying at the bill. A great location for a restaurant with a great menu however the owner clearly needs to get hold of the team quickly to avoid cases of this happening. I work in retail myself and know what good looks like when it comes to customer service and clearly this place lacks that.

We stayed in room 10 on Sunday night. The room was lovely presented and good facilities. Unfortunately the WiFi was very poor and after 23:00 it droped off completely so we decided to watch the Tv. The Tv signal started to drop off and we got a message that "NO DIGITAL TV SIGNAL AVAILABLE" as we were already for bed we didn't want to dress and go down to try and find someone as pub was now closed. When I mentioned it at checkout the woman on reception just said " Oh Sorry" When I showed her the picture of the message I got she just said "Oh yes I know what you mean now" No explanation or anything she just took my key. I was very disappointed that a room we paid £110 for had not internet or tv and no explanation why. I would not stay again.

Me and my Husband stayed for 1 night after spending a day in Harrogate, we couldn't check in until 1600hrs which I thought was a bit late, it wasn't because they were cleaning the room from the previous occupants as it was dusty, looked as though it hadn't been hoovered and every bathroom towel had a red/orange stain on. There was no guest information at all re the room and facilities only a covid note on the dressing table and only enough shampoo, shower gel etc for one person barely enough for one shower the same amount also in brew making facilities and biscuits. We had an evening meal but we were shoved in the corner as a table for two and forgotten about at the end of the meal we requested a dessert menu but nobody came back to take our order so we put on our masks at the table and attempted to get somebodies attention for the bill, again we waited around 10 minutes for somebody to see that we were waiting. Breakfast was a military operation we requested to sit by the window but was told no as the table wasn't set another further 2 families requested to sit there also and was told no, would it have been so difficult to set the table?! Breakfast was brought to our table by a young girl with dark hair who brought us numerous items but didn't speak one work to us, I really did feel uncomfortable. We won't be returning which is a shame because the surroundings are beautiful.

We stayed here for 3 nights over a long weekend, with our greyhounds. Comfortable bed and room, with en-suite shower.
Separate residents entrance for dog walkies and poo bin for use near by.
Dogs can sit in the bar for evening meal with you, or humans only in the restaurant.
Good quality food with specials board to vary the offer.
Highly recommended.

Drove past this pub on the way to Pateley Bridge and thought it looked great so turned around and popped in. We hadn’t booked a table but they were able to accommodate and we got a lovely table, under a gazebo outside. We ordered at the bar and the social distanced set up was excellent. We had to ask for the government 50% discount which we assumed was automatic but that was quickly changed once we requested it. The food was served to our table and it was delicious! Would highly recommend for a fab home cooked, pub lunch which exceeds expectations!

Sadly only stayed for one night. We used as a base as it is in a perfect location for Skipton, Kettlewell Harrogate, Knaresborough and many more. We were warmly greeted and booked in very quickly.
Our room (no4) whilst not the biggest was fine for our stay, what it lacked in size it made up for with wonderful views, was very clean with a comfortable bed. We chose to have a drink outside sitting on the decked area at the rear which makes the most of the fantastic views.
The food was excellent, both our evening meal and breakfast with plenty of choice for both.
All of the staff we spoke to were friendly and polite and adhered to the covid measures required which in itself is reassuring.
I would highly recommend staying and will be returning in the future. Thank you to all the staff for making our stay a pleasurable one.

I was looking for a place to hold an overnight and one day meeting with a colleague to plan a teaching event. Harrogate was halfway, and we wanted a country pub. The Wellington fitted the bill, and I booked it.

The food was excellent, the beer likewise, the rooms are comfortable and well appointed.

We stayed the following day to have our meeting (just two people). The owner Chris and her team could not have been more helpful and accommodating, arranging somewhere for us to sit quietly and undisturbed, and even lighting the fire. The service was attentive and friendly, and the views surrounding are spectacular.

Would recommend it highly as a place to stay in the lovely Yorkshire countryside

There's a public bar and then an area between the bedrooms and the public bar with tables that's like a lounge/restaurant area, nice big fireplace (see our photos) and more than comfortable for you to eat and have your dog with you. There's a further separate restaurant area towards the rear that's got a carpeted area and slightly more plush seating, dogs aren't allowed in there for dinner and likewise breakfast is served there in the morning. If you wish to have breakfast with your dog nearby staff will arrange a table in the lounge area by the fireplace, they're very flexible and accommodating.
