I have found this pleasant hotel's bar/restaurant difficult to categorize, it is better than average but does not, n my view, rate the category of very good. There are however, many good points. The location is good, situated by the river, and I suspect very pleasant on a summer's day. We lunched here on a dull, wet January day. There was a pleasant welcome and a cheering fire in the bar, which would benefit from some refurbishment.

The menu offers a good choice of interesting dishes and there is a reasonable choice of wine by the glass and bottle. The food and wine that we ordered was acceptable and both food and wine were good value for money.

There is a car park.

I would consider eating here again.

This pub serves lovely food which can be taken outside weather permitting in a setting at the top of the North Yorkshire Moors in a lovely village. Very handy for visiting the North Yorkshire Moors Railway at Levisham which is down in the next valley. A gem.

We have eaten here many times over the years. However each time we arrive on the motorbike there is a reason not to serve us food. Shame as we deliberately drive over two hours to get there. The first time the lady was just downright rude but we went back after a while as its such a nice village. The times after that we have been in the car & although extremely busy they have been lovely. This time we arrived on the bike again. They were relatively quiet customer wise in comparison to other times but told us there was a long wait fir food. I asked how long? Ages! It was obvious they didn't want to serve. Well we won't go back. Shame.

Stopped for lunch after finding this pub on our travels, the location is beautiful and luckily the sun was shining so we got to sit outside. The food was really good, the steak pie with its beautiful pastry and the pork belly are definitely to be recommended! The portions are huge too. The only slight disappointment were the starters of breaded brie, which were nice, but not home prepared and a little pricey for what they were. The mains definitely made up for it though. Really nice home cooked pub food! Will definitely call again.

Visited saturday 31st August with a group of fellow walkers. Lovely friendly pub, and the Landlord was very welcoming. Sat outside in sunshine. Very enjoyable visit.
