We have dined here many times and we were not disappointed with anything on Boxing Day. Atmosphere was lively and the staff were attentive charming as always. We were stumped with what to order, as there were so many fantastic choices on the daily special's board, but I settled with the pheasant and celeriac mash while my husband enjoyed breast of mallard duck. This is one of my top dining experiences since my first time here in the summer of 2007. If you plan a visit in warmer weather, the beer garden and the river view seating are lovely, food is extensive and there is something to suit everyone's pallet with seasonal and local produce (game, meats). Hats off to you for wonderful service and outstanding beer.....try the Timothy Taylor Boltmaker (IF you are lucky to be there on that magical day it's on) or Hetton Pale Ale).
We have stayed here twice, and I do suggest a room not overlooking the street or main door (on the restaurant side) as voices and traffic did carry up to the rooms, but that was in the summer months when we had the window open in the evening. The rooms were comfortable and the Molton Brown amenities were grand. We chose that room because it was one of the larger rooms, but we have stayed in a room that overlooked the back of the property that we found to be just right.
If you are an avid walker or just fancy a gentle stroll, Burnsall is the essential place to be with a splendid river walk, and if you don't eat too much, you can make that walk to Grassington! The walks are well marked and there is a lot of choice even without a map.
