The team now running this pub are very friendly and enthusiastic. Excellent home-cooked food to satisfy the biggest appetite. Our 1-night stay was fine but our room was in need of a makeover (the owners are keen to do this when funds allow). Great packed lunch for our next day's walking!

Absolutely brilliant pub . Staff welcoming and friendly with proper home cooked food to die for. would definitely recommend a visit you will not be disappointed. The breaded brie is amazing and the desserts are huge home made and wonderfull. Give it a try.

We always pop in to the Gnu when we're visiting family in North Newbald and since it changed hands it's gone up hill so much! The staff are so friendly and it's always a pleasure to go. At Easter they had an Easter egg hunt in the back and I've never seen so many excited children in one place!

We stayed at the Gnu Inn after our first day walking the Yorkshire Wolds Way. The village is about 1 mile off the Yorkshire Wolds Way and was a welcome break after the first day of walking. The double room was very comfortable, in a separate building to the pub. The pub served excellent food and drinks, and really friendly...

I was staying in the area with family and friends, we booked the Gnu Inn for dinner on Friday night. The welcome we received was excellent, we ordered drinks and then ordered food from a very reasonable menu with a "specials" section. All ten meals were served within a very reasonable timescale, every dish looked superb and the portions were...

Stopped here overnight for a wedding nearby. Check-in was smooth and it was a great place to have a quick drink before we went to the wedding. Our room was clean and spacious, including everything we might need. However, it has to be said that the cooked breakfast (we also had cereal before) was excellent. It was of a high...

We hadn't visited "The Gnu" for ages but decided to give it a try for tea. We were greeted by lots of friendly people.The 2 men behind the bar could not have been more helpful. Both my husband and myself had no cash so we were really thankful that they had a card machine and we could leave our card...

Only recently moved to North Newbald but when we visited the Gnu we felt like old friends. We understand that previous reviews haven't been very positive but the pub has new management, who are going to make this venue a success. All the staff are friendly, haven't eaten here yet but when we go for a drink there seems to...
