“Wonderful”
Reviewed 23 October 2011

What a gem in the wonderful Yorkshire Dales. Hugh, the chef and part owner was most welcoming. We had the 3-2-1 early evening special (three courses, two people and a bottle of wine) and spent three relaxing hours soaking up the wonderful food, wine and atmosphere. I have never before had a "cordon bleu" breakfast, a treat not to be missed.

our first time in this pub for years and we were pleasantly surprised.Fantastic service from "Alex" really made to feel welcome and good explanation of the menu and recommendations ,lovely to see a real ham and oysters on the bar .Lobster was out of this world and the simple but delightful caramelised pineapple with black pepper and vanilla ice cream was a real taste sensation .Next time I get the chance to go out for a meal I will be returning.

Fantastic food - cut above rivals in terms of quality. Mains £15-17 are well worth the money. Service good and some great oil paintings which add to the atmosphere. Try Pedro the ham!

We wanted a nice pub to stay in overnight. This place was a random choice, but a real gem. Not far from the A1, but in a little Yorkshire village. Nice comfy bed with en suite shower room. The food was truly excellent, with the locally brewed Black Sheep Ale going down a treat too.
