Had a lovely lunch, steak tender and cooked as I ordered. Chips homemade, lovely. Onion rings good. Served with pot of peas, a peppercorn sauce and a very small salad. Would have liked some mushrooms. Also not offered any condiments, or mustard, or asked if we would have liked a second drink. No one asked if the meal was ok. The meal was good, the hap hazard service let it down slightly.

For some years we have been visiting the Kearton Country Hotel whilst out for the day on the motorbike. We have always been received warmly and without fuss. The food is always of a high standard and of exceptional value for your money. Recently the Hotel has changed hands and there is always the worry that things will change for the worse. A day out alone on the motorbike gave me the opportunity to visit it today......there have been a few changes to the atmosphere of the place and it feels slightly different, but overall it still offers exceptional value and excellent food. It will just take a few more visits to get acustomed to the new owners.

The Kearton is a combined tea/coffee shop, hotel with bar and restaurant.Attractive enough form the outside but nothing to indicate the quality of the food served inside. We first called in one cold March afternoon after a cycle ride and had a hot chocolate which was quite special and decided to have dinner there the following evening. It was sublime from beginning to end and very reasonably priced for such high quality.
Both starters (warm black pudding and apple salad and an outstanding Caprese of mozzarella, tomato, rocket and toasted nuts), both mains (chicken stuffed with Wensleydale and wrapped in dry cured bacon and herb crusted roast cod with chilli) and both deserts (home made Yorkshire curd with rum cream and ice cream and rich lemon cheesecake) were all faultless and delicious.
Service was excellent and the setting very good in a traditional sort of way.

Stopped for a much needed pot of tea whilst on first day of a cycling trip. Tea comes with homemade ginger biscuit. Kids had the DIY hot chocolate - brilliant idea. Very pleasant busy little place. So nice we stopped on the way home for lunch too.
