We arrived in the bar, on Sunday mid-afternoon just after just after a group of 20 had arrived, however the pub was not overly busy. The bar staff told us it might be a wait for food but not too long. David cut in and said as the group only mostly wanted sandwiches it would not be long at all. David quickly took our order.
Our glasses were dirty - one still had a previous users lipstick round the top.
We waited over an hour, in which time we endured a loud young bar person telling other customers about her personal life decisions and her opinions about staff in the kitchen.
When our order eventually came, it was not paninis as ordered, but sandwiches made from cheap white loaf bread tasting of cheap margarine. The orders of accompanying chips were completely wrong and the chips we did get tasted like they had been cooked in old well-used fat. We asked for salad cream but the bar person forgot to send for it. We complained as we were paying and we were offered a discount. We had left most of our meals.
The place is dirty with layers of thick dust in the toilets. I bring a lot of friends to the Yorkshire Dales, both from this country and from Germany and Spain. I am only pleased that I have never booked rooms or brought them for a meal at this dreadful place. I would be ashamed. I only hope that the management try and do something with what could be a lovely building before we open the Dales to the Tour de France. I would not like think that visitors would experience this pub as part of their impression of our beautifal Yorkshire Dales.
