Love the welcome, the ambience, the staff and the food. Been 6 times now-never disappointed. You'll probably need to book.

My husband and I have eaten here before (see previous review) and enjoyed it so were thrilled at another opportunity to eat here just before Christmas. However, as per my previous experience of the website, this is limited for planning a visit with sample menus only and no dessert menu available. The place was packed out with a full car... More

Good job we booked as the restaurant was very busy. I had the roast beef dinner which came with a decent sized Yorkshire pud, roast potatoes and mashed carrot and swede - other veg are charged extra. Good, but I would have preferred the beef a little less well done. My partner had a huge lamb shank which he only... More

We only had mains, wife had the loin of pork and I had the Barnsley chop, both were very good. Owner always makes me laugh, a customer asked can I... More

We were part of a large group having dinner, age ranges from 11 to 80. Something for everyone on the extensive menu, good service and we all had an enjoyable evening. Minor niggle....should have been what told they had run out of earlier, rather than after people had made their choice from the menu.

This is our 4th visit now and we love the place. Room 13 is our favourite room. The hot tub is amazing, over looking the dales drinking champagne is my idea of heaven. The room is clean and tidy and the bed is enormous. The staff always make a big effort to make you feel welcome. The food is proper... More

Just back from our Christmas lunch and all feeling very replete! That's full and happy! Great friendly service. Traditional Christmas food on offer with a good mix of alternative options. Excellent value at £23 for 3 courses.
