Lovely setting but everything else disappointing. There are some very good reviews on here about this place but on our lunchtime visit the service was very slow, food average at best and somewhat overpriced for the standard served. I actually think a Wetherspoons serves better...More

If travelling between York and Scarborough it is well worth the short detour off the A64 to eat at the Stone Trough. Fantastic food and great beers; what more could a person want. My wife and I dined there and were treated to some absolute...More

Visited last Friday for the first time. Group of 6. Beautiful inn with warm atmosphere. Staff were so accommodating and friendly yet professional. Food was perfect and the 'surprise ' amuse bouche was delicious. Wish I lived nearer so I could go more often

The end of a nine mile walk and like an oasis in the desert The Stone Trough shimmered in the distance like a beacon as the heavy rain shower ended... We were just going to have a quick drink and move on, but it was...More

We thought we would enjoy our meal at this pub, given the reviews, and while it was okay, it wasn't anything special, especially as we'd eaten at The Blacksmith Arms the night before, just up the road at Westow, which was much better. The pub...More

After a long drive from London we chose this pub as it was close to Castle Howard and looked like the sort of place we could eat, drink, rest and get changed into our wedding gear..ie nice toilets! Friendly staff, wonderful setting with stunning scenery,...More

You can but it’s a bit of a trek. It’s just a big hill in your way so going back to the a64 can be a brutal after a meal
