Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We stumbled across this place whilst staying at the nearby campsite. Originally we were planning to look at the other 2 pubs in the other direction, but as they say, things happen for a reason! We are so glad that we did. We had a...lovely meal, they were very accommodating to my mum’s dietary needs as certain foods disagree with her. Everything was fresh. The menu is limited but there is enough to choose from if you are fussy like me. I wanted the steak and ale pie but it was sold out so ended up with steak! It was delicious! When we had finished our dinner we sat on the sofa with a lovely warm fire simmering away whilst my mum had her coffee and I sipped on a cask ale. My step dad was happy too as he could drink lots of cask ale!More

Excellent from start to finish. We were a group of 4 adults and 4 children. We arrived early for our 5.30 table and we’re warmly welcomed by the staff. The chef started our order early so that we weren’t waiting around - a really nice...touch. The food was fantastic (fish was huge with really crispy batter and chunky hand cut chips and the cod loin was melt in your mouth). The kids meals were incredible value - home cooked meals with a dessert included for £9. The service was brilliant and the atmosphere calm and welcoming. We’ll certainty be back next time we pass through.More

What a fantastic find! Good selection of beers on offer (as well as wines, laters and even a few cocktails). I had the pork scratchings while looking at the menu. Belly pork teriyaki started and then pie and chips for main. My wife had the...butternut squash risotto. All absolutely spot on. Enjoyed the quiz as well as a bonus.More

We have just returned home from a short break. We stopped across the road from the pub and ate there both nights. We have never been anywhere else that gave us such a warm friendly welcome. All the members of staff were extremely friendly and...made us both feel very welcome. The food was excellent. Would highly recommend this place to stop for a light refreshment or meal. The building is a delight. Would also like to thank Ian, Tom and Andy for allowing us to be part of your quiz team, maybe next time will win.More

We joined a lunch party on Mother’s Day, and had the private dining room There were 10 adults and six children, and we were extremely well looked after It is a lovely place and the staff are very accommodating and very pleasant The food was...excellent, and my only complaint in the source of way was that we were given too much I ordered the roast beef lunch and had four thick slices of beef +7 different vegetables, and an enormous Yorkshire pudding !

Just by chance passed this pub on the way out of Ripon, called in for food and came out well served and thoroughly impressed. Lovely looking pub from the outside, very comfortable inside and with the log burner going, the ambience was superb. The pub...was well staffed, the girls being very courteous and professional, but the food made it a 10 out of 10 for us. The perfect country pub-restaurant, and if we buy chance are anywhere in the area, we'll be making a beeline for the Stavely Arms.More
