“Delicious fresh sandwiches”
Reviewed 16 May 2014 via mobile

Stopped off for sandwiches on our way to Harrogate. Enjoyed excellent fresh barm cakes with huge slices of hand carved ham and egg mayo with crispy bacon. All delicious and very quick. - copper dragon bitter choices superb. Would thoroughly recommend a visit!

“Used to be good but gone downhill completely”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

Don't usually write reviews but felt compelled to after today's meal. Been here a few times In past and was lovely but assuming it must of changed hands. Lady at bar was rude and didn't seem to want to serve us. Waited ages for anyone to come and take order. Food was very poor. Small portions and meat was like leather. Salad old or unwashed and mash probably reheated. Despite saying (when asked) few times that meat was tough they didn't offer any alternative or otherwise. Felt custom not valued. Won't go again - on plus side nice looking pub with cosy fire and nice views. Ok for a drink! Pub was quiet even on Easter Sunday for food which says it all too.

“Good tasty food and excellent staff”
Reviewed 8 March 2014 via mobile

We had a meal here with family on Valentines evening...the food was brilliant, the atmosphere cosy with the fires roaring. What really made it for us was how child friendly the pub is, nearing the end of the evening we had a little grumpy and tired boy who Rachel was exceptional with, she coloured with him, chatted with him and even sent him home with all the balloons from the evening which he had been eyeing up (he was thrilled!). Thank you! Would highly recommend this lovely pub for a meal and we are planning another trip with other family soon.

“Sunday Lunch 29th December 2013”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

Waited 1 and a quarter hours to be served 2 main courses - 1 beef, 1 pork. Environment COLD, when food arrived requested apple sauce to accompany pork, don't do! Beef not palatable, very stringy. Yorkshire pudding with beef not acceptable. Have not visited establishment for a number of years, previous experience very enjoyable, won't be going back.
