Very friendly service from all, extensive menu and good specials too. Food was lovely and decent portions too. Beer all timmy taylor and very well kept. Decorated well,...

A group of us dropped in here for drinks whilst on a day out to the scarecrow festival. Service was very poor we were waiting at the the bar whilst the staff tidied up behind the bar pointedly ignoring us. I eventually ordered half of lime and soda and charged £1.70 this is usually around 50p -£1 in our local...

At £100 a night for a double room, the Racehorses is a little more expensive than compatible places in Kettlewell. However I think you get value for money here. Our room was not huge but has a superkingsize bed and a large bathroom with bath and 'hand-held' shower. Our room overlooked the stream at the rear of the building and...

Can't be beaten for location and I think they know that and charge way more than they should for a pub with rooms! Not in the best bracket of country pubs. Average food (not cheap). Good beer. Won't return. Lots of better places in the dales for similar money.

A warm welcome from start to finish. Great staff & owner (Kevin) is always happy to help. The room is lovely and very modern. Comfortable bed and a clean welcoming room. The food is great and far better than other local places. Will definitely stay here again and bring my family next time. Great place to be for great walks....

Had a nice room overlooking the stream that runs through Kettlewell. Village is a beautiful Dales setting, and The Racehorses is cheerful. The restaurant area, however, needs an update and maybe not to have the large plasma screen on in the corner when you're trying to have a conversation with your dining companion! That said, staff v helpful, breakfasts ok,...
