I have never had such a big breakfast in my life, evening meal was one of the nicest I have ever had. The soup was delicious, the Lamb Shank to die for and the veg was perfect. We stopped in the little cottage at the side of the pub, my only complaint was the bed was a little hard and the t.v in the bedroom did not work. The complimentary chocolates were a nice touch, and the array of tea and coffee etc. a nice touch. I will come back again, and definately recommend it yo my friends.

We stayed for one night in the large family room. We had booked the night before but our younger son was ill and they kindly let us change the booking without any problems. The room is split level with twin beds close together and a double, en-suite (shower), TV and a complimentary refreshments tray including biscuits, sweets and a bar of chocolate!

There is a comfortable small bar and restaurant with a terrace overlooking the Esk. The village is pretty and you are within easy distance of the moors and coast.

The food in the restaurant is fabulous - a varied and interesting menu with information on where the meat, fish and vegetables are sourced. They even smoke their own fish. The food is cooked to order and they will cook to the children's tastes too. A two course meal for 4 including drinks cost us £90.

A very pleasant and friendly place!

Avoid the standard double at the front - the noise from the bar below goes on well into the night, and the ducks are noisy at 6.30am. The accommodation is rather shabby, but all was clean and the shower was fine, although somewhat cramped. The hot water in the sink was off on day one, but fixed as soon as I complained. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, and the food was top notch.

We have stayed at, eaten at and drank at The Board Inn in Lealholm on many occasions, and without doubt, Alistair and Karen run a first class, triple A rated establishemnt.

The food is out of this world, locally sourced and with many cuts of meat coming directly from their own herd - literally from the field to the table - and boy can you taste the difference! A constantly changing and varied menu keeps you coming back for more, time and again.

We stayed in the 'Cottage' on B&B basis; which was spotlessly clean, warm and comfy; and very handy for the pub! It had all the facilities you could wish for, and it was also dog friendly.

The actual pub is very traditional and rural in character, with a great selection of real ales and ciders. Friendly and attentative staff are always on hand to either serve, offer advice, or just have a good chat.

This really is the quintessential Yorkshire country gastro pub and B&B. You really couldn't ask for more, and we regularly recommend it to friends, or take them to it for a meal and a drink.
