We stayed in Malham for 2 nights and ate here each evening. The pub has a lovely atmosphere and the food was to a good standard and fairly reasonably priced.

The rooms are modern with a country feel, clean, spacious with huge comfy beds. There were lovely additions like hot chocolate on the hospitality try with big mugs not useless small cups like so...

We stayed here in a character room for 5 days and I have to stay it was so comfortable, clean and above all quiet. The room itself was gorgeous and well maintained, plus cleaned daily. The pub was so friendly and welcoming, I love the fact you could sit in there all evening playing an old game from the past.... More

Dining is available in the dining room, which is spacious and comfortable or in the bar which is not quite as spaced out. There are no steps in the front entrance, but at the back there is the alternative of a ramp or steps from the car park, but one step at the back door. There are steps down to... More

The pub had a lovely atmosphere with a nice relaxed clientele although the staff seemed a little stressed. Unfortunately the fish and chips was off but my... More

Very good menu with something for everyone and our food arrived very soon after ordering, huge portions. Sunday roast was excellent, burger meat seemed processed, but would definitely would return and chose a different main from the extensive menus. The manager & staff were all working extremely hard and the whole atmosphere was very inviting.

It has a real buzz to it....the bar area was full of people enjoying a drink and food...families with their dog - well behaved I might add. The main... More
