We ate here on the first night of our weekend stay in Glaisdale.
We wanted a basic Tasty dinner, and thats what we got.
The scampi was good, as were the chips. Hubby had gammon which was good, but he said lacked a bit of `greenery` (salad or veg would have completed the dish)
The breakfast was tasty & freshly cooked.
As stated in my review of the room at the Arncliffe, if youre after a 5 star hotel standard, then dont book.
Its a comfortable, warm country pub. We were very satisfied and would visit again.
Would be an ideal bikers stop....situated in the best countryside.

... on the way to the museum of victorian science. Lovely pub, good beer and the food we saw going out to table looked very nice indeed.

We stayed here on the final day of our Coast to Coast and compared to where we had stayed before this was a huge disappointment.

The room was poky and small, the shower door broken and the staff watched as we struggled to carry our bags upstairs having run over 30 miles that day and didn't even offer to help. The evening meal was ok but very greasy and I would have preferred not to have had to share my dinner with a dog who kept wandering around and putting it's head on other people's tables.

If you want a good night sleep then don't go on a saturday night as we did. Karaoke was on and we were told it would only be on until 11pm but it went on until after midnight.

We also wanted an early start on Sunday morning to finish our coast to coast and we were told by the barmaid that we could have breakfast at 7.15am. We came down at 7.15am and there was no one up and we had to leave without breakfast. We walked past other people who had stayed over who also had to leave without breakfast. It would have been nice if they had at least told us that they wouldn't be serving breakfast at that time and we would have tried to make other plans.

I wouldn't recommend. Very, very disappointed.

We ate here on our coast to coast walk and stayed the night. As a b and b it was perfectly fine but the food was excellent. I had pork in peppercorn cream sauce - wonderful, served with a huge selection of well cooked fresh vegetables by a friendly young waiter. Do try it.

Party of 5 was expecting a good evening meal after long days walk. Interior looked a bit tired but menu seemed ok. Were looking forward to a good steak and going by the price of this and the other meals had every expectation. The others had some chicken smothered in cheese and rather greasy chips. No steak knife was provided but doubt a surgeons scalpel would have cut the steak. On complaint the plate was taken away to do what with the steak was not made clear. It returned just as the others finished their meal with the statement 'that the worst bit had been cut off'. It had but the rest was still inedible. No apology and we left having paid for the other meals and drinks. Very disappointing experience and far removed from their slogan. We really hope that other clients have a much better meal as this is one of the few places on the C to C route in Glaisdale where you can eat.
