We ate at this hotel in the evening. The food was good hearty straight forward pub food, as another reviewer has said. E.g. pate, whitebait type starters and gammon/pineapple, curry , veg stroganoff type mains. Friendly service. The children's menu was very limited so my nieces ate from the adult menu. After the village Duck Race event in the afternoon, we sat outside, drank and enjoyed several troupes of morris dancers performing a dance off in the streets. Excellent country life!!

Ate lunch there with my wife and mother on a very busy Saturday in Kettlewell due to the Mayfest. Could not find a parking spot in village but saw space the Racehorses car park. Thought we might get told off but landlord was so welcoming we decided to have lunch there. Nothing fancy but great food, very fresh, well cooked and reasonable prices. All staff very friendly and great service. Cracking Tim Taylors as well. Would recommend.

Everyone catered for and very busy - say no more? The food and service here is superb- a typical Yorkshire Dales hotel.

I recently spent a week in Kettlewell as a base for my walking holiday. The first night I chose to eat at The Racehorses and the meal was so good that I returned there every night for the rest of the week. A friendly welcome from the landlord Kevin and attentive, efficient and courteous service in the bar and dining room from Martina and her delightful team. A lovely open fire in the bar - just what was needed after a day on the hills. A good range of dishes on the menu, many of which are not usually found in country pubs and hotels. The presentation of the food was particularly good and it was a welcome change to have properly cooked fresh vegetables that went beyond the usual peas, carrots and broccoli. Both the beef dishes that I had were delicious as was the mushroom stroganoff and the fish. Outstanding value for money; I can't wait to return!

Had two fantastic meals here last week served by very welcoming friendly staff and accompanied by some great real ale.
Can not praise the experience highly enough and we shall return.
