We have eaten here on a lot of occasions, Sunday lunches been a favourite. We visited today Sunday, after a break due to lockdowns etc. The food was ok, pretty average, no where near as nice as it used to be. The staff were abrupt,...not very welcoming or friendly. The staff yelling at each other from the tables through to the kitchen. Pleases and thanks you definitely lacking. Not sure what's gone wrong, as it used to be lovely and friendly.More

We stopped here/tried to stop here for tea, we tried to book in advance however the lady that picked up the phone promised us that we don’t need to book and we will be able to go and get seated. However upon arrival we was...told that they don’t have any more seats inside due to them all being reserved. So we asked if we could eat outside due to the weather being nice and lots of free tables in the beer garden however they refused to serve food in the beer garden which is strange and not usual. We then called in later to have a drink in the beer garden and it seemed surprisingly quiet inside. We believe/could feel that this pub is mainly for locals and don’t try and cater for visitors and wider customers. Very disappointed will never return in my life unless dragged there. However the ice cream factory had a completely different feel, they catered for our needs and had lots of local knowledge and very friendly defo a place worth visiting.More

The Dalesman is full of wonderful staff who so kindly look after my grandad who is 90years old! He goes in almost daily for his full English breakfast (which is one of the best I have ever tasted) The staff are so friendly and welcoming...If your looking for a friendly place to have a meal or a drink then the Dalesman is the place to go.More

The wonderfully refurbished Dalesman threw us a cracker of a Christmas dinner for 10. The varied menu catered for all our dietary whims, and nothing disappointed. It's worth going just for the mac 'n' cheese bites and caramel roulade.

Went with the other halfs family for a meal, they didnt get the booking right so had to move us to the back room (only way out to the smoking area). For a revamped pub the doors still only open outwards which is no good...for my other half as she needs a wheelchair and there is no assisted door opening button so we had to struggle to get through the doors as we arrived after her family, could not access the smoking area out back properly has it has stairs so my other half found this a struggle. The food we had was from their "festive" menu but honestly most of it looked like it was straight from the co op round the corner. It takes a special someone to burn Yorkshire puddings and even more so of a poor uncaring chef to actually send them out along with luke warm burgers, cold hard sprouts, cold mashed potatoes and 1 medium sized piece of turkey each. Atmosphere is as it used to be before the revamp quiet and the people rude, one even went as far as knocking the high chair and causing the food to be flung over the floor. It was a good job the young one had finished as the guy didnt even apologise for it and carried out walking out the door.More
