My experience couldn't have been better. I was staying alone whilst on a local caving course (also excellent). The landlord and lady were very welcoming and friendly and went out of their way to help me out when I badly sprained my ankle. The bedroom was very clean, warm and tastefully decorated. Crisp, white bedding and gorgeous thick white towelling...

I found this place when I was doing some 2000's (Nuttalls) I found the place to be warm and welcoming, The landlord might present as a little gruff at first, but I was on on my own and he made a point of chatting to me and making me feel welcome. The food was excellent and my room was clean...

My wife and I visited the Craven Heifer in Stainforth on Saturday and was treated to evening of log fires, great beer, and superb food. The pub has a special village type appeal and is warm and inviting. Both our meals were to a high standard in both quality and amount, the new chef seems to have made a huge...

My husband ate at this pub a few years ago when he was doing the Land`s End to John o`Groats cycle ride with his friend, his memories were of good hearty food, so as we were passing through the area again we returned a few couple of weeks ago and we were certainly not disappointed! The pub is a short...

The Craven Heifer used to look uninviting, but after a recent walk, my wife and I decided a quick drink was required, so decided to take a chance. What a surprise to find the pub all painted up and renovated inside. As it was just coming up to 2.00pm I presumed they would be stopping serving any food that was...

The newly renovated Craven Heifer was a little bit of a mixed experience. The rooms were clean, tidy, and comfortable. We ate both dinner and breakfast there and both were reasonable, not great, but decent pub fare. The slight downside was the service, neither the bar person nor the owners made much effort to make us feel welcome. This is...

Excellent food. Absolutely, everything anybody could wish for in country pub. This little gem of a place can only be up there with the finest of typical country hospitality expected within the Yorkshire Sales. The rooms have just recently been refurbished to the highest standard. Considering Andrew an Maureen have been there 6months they have gutted the bear bones of...

Stayed here with my boyfriend for two nights while attending a wedding at nearby Taitlands. Perfect location for this; only 5-10 minute walk from the venue so if you are a wedding guest, you can't get closer. Parking is provided which was great for our rental car. Lovely cosy rooms, comfy and clean. Beautiful stained glass windows are a definite...
