We couldn't find any accomodation for our party of 5 from work in the Pickering area. All our usual haunts were booked up. Then we found the Tantara who could. Noboby knew it but looking at TA it seemed ok so we went for it. Well, TA reviewers were right, it IS a nice place to stay. Charlotte and her family try very hard to please. The bedrooms were spotless as was the dining room and small bar area. The furnishings are quality. Perhaps the only downside noted was that my room (10) could be made into a suite with the adjacent room and sound carried easily through the connecting door.
The meals are substantial and good although my steak on the first night was a little tough. The second night I tried the chicken wrapped in bacon with a leak sauce - delicious! As for the sticky toffee pudding desert - well my colleaugues and I had it the second night as well - to die for.
All in all, it's worth the treck up the hill from Middleton village. It's handy to get back to Pickering and it's delights or the N York Moors Railway and is in a good location to get onto the North York Moors if you're a walker. Scarborough is only about 30 mins ride away with York about 45 mins so it's ideally situated.
