Warm welcome and great service from Denis and the team, superb rare roast beef, loads of fresh veg, and decent coffee. And, proper linen napkins! Good value, and immaculate lavs, too. I rarely award five stars, but they are well deserved here.

Stayed here for two nights. It is the perfect location for exploring The Yorkshire Dales. There are opportunities for beautiful walks straight from the door. The original features, open fires, fabulous food and comfortable bedrooms made this a very enjoyable stay.

Nice atmophere and a good selection of drinks. Local beers on tap and soft drinks for the drivers. Real fires in both rooms which made it feel very cosy. Didn't stay for food however it looked a very comprehensive menu. We were not staying here so can't comment on the rooms.

Stayed to do some walking in the Dales, great location, lovely rooms and the food is very very good. Walked up to Buckden Pike and the war memorial, great circular route via Buckden. Bar area is very nice, nice beer and good wine selection. Food was well presented, warm and very high quality.

Excellent one night stay - young hosts who offered excellent service Refurbished to a high standard - stripped back interior but retains the feel of a classic Yorkshire dales pub, stone floors and roaring fire Cosy room again of high standard Better than average pub food Superb situation for walks and cycling
