Hi, Im sorry your stay wasnt to your satisfaction. We are looking to extend the pub to create more drinking space as we agree we could do with more tables but im afraid over the very busy christmas markets there will always be less than we wish there was. We certainly feel we havent sold our soul to anyone but as we serve some of the finest food in skipton we do requre a large amount of space for the diners and the pub does reflect this. In order to assist those not wishing to dine we have spent rather a lot of money builing one of the best covered and heated beer gardens in town which is fully used even in the winter months. However the allocation of the pub hasnt changed during my decade of management here. The self service aspect of the breakfast is designed to allow you to get exactly what you want while our staff take care of the other important bits. Im sorry this wasnt to your personal preference but we find it works exceptionally well and get multiple guest raving about our breakfasts as it is all freshly cooked, locally sourced and you can literally have whatever you want.

Stayed for 1 night with friends to visit Christmas Markets in Grassington and Skipton. Excellent accommodation, deluxe rooms are worth the extra amount. Very friendly staff, nothing is too much effort. Choice of food and drinks is fantastic. Great atmosphere throughout the pub.

Is the inn really haunted?
We went for drinks and food and didn't get any spooky vibes. Was really nice pub.

You should contact the pub direct - I am sure they would be able to provide you with a suitable room but am not sure which would be suitable.
