We went to the pub for dinner on Monday evening. Food was very acceptable with large portions. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The only slight observation is the central heating was on full blast and the enormous Jacobean Log fire was also on full blast...it was just to warm.

The Tennants Arms is set in the picturesque village of Kilnsey near to the famous Kilnsey Crag. It is ideal as a base for exploring the fantastic Dales scenery either on foot by bike or car. Horse riding and fishing are also available locally. We decided to eat here on Saturday night the food was good and the drinks reasonably... More

Lovely old hotel / pub - complete with squeaky floorbodrds walking down the hall. We stayed two nights to do a walk with family - all very happy with accomodation and food. And the fire. Helpful and friendly - we would go again if I can find another walk closeby. Only thing for them to improve on is the turnaround... More

I stayed for a couple of nights recently - enjoyed good breakfasts (large enough to not need lunch) and evening meals too. The Timothy Taylor's Landlord slipped down very well indeed at the end of the day. We found the staff friendly and the bar, with roaring log fire, had a lovely atmosphere in the evenings - a mixture of... More

First, the criticisms: Booked a luxury room at a cost of £120. Definitely was not luxury and the hotel generally is tired and old fashioned. The room needed a good dust and the mattress needed replacing as you could feel the springs. The paintwork was chipped, the headboard marked, and the carpet tired. The bathroom was new, clean and functioning,... More

Jon (without a 'H') gave us a warm welcome paired with great beer and great food. A beautiful pub and lovely atmosphere with an open fire and particularly good background music! Definitely coming back. 😊

Have been visiting this pub a couple of times a year for many years whilst on walking ventures in the Dales. Was initially disappointed to find the Sunday carvery was no more, but the Sunday roasts did not disappoint. Selection of three meats, served with ample piping hot veg, proper Yorkshire puds and washed down with decent beer. Bar staff... More
