Restaurant details
Reviewed 18 July 2014

2 visits this week both times struggled with service 1st time food not too bad hence second visit
2nd ( and Last !!!) food very poor
I had smoked haddock risotto and although very nice the poached egg was hard !! not good, but tasty. On second visit my wife also had this but was clearly microwaved and much closer to wallpaper paste.
Both times we struggled to get the wine on table, during meal had keep reminding staff, when did arrive not opened but hey ho this is not a top class hotel.
Visited on the hottest day of the year ALL THE WINDOWS CLOSED asked the girl who was worried about birds flying in, this is the Yorkshire Dales there are birds !
Definitely off the "to visit " list but on a positive note had the best Yorkshire parkin ever there.

Called in for an afternoon tea after a wet day taking photographs in Swaledale. \the level of service was first class. The menu was varied and well priced, being in my opinion one of the best valued tea rooms that I have had the pleasure to go to.

Went for lunch as it's was mum and dad's wedding anniversary. They had been before but knew the place had been up for sale, so we were unsure of what to expect.
The menu wasn't extensive, but enough for our needs, and very reasonably priced. The service was a little slow mainly for the drinks, but the food served was definitely fresh and tasty. When we came to pay we found it was a new owner, so the place should see stability.
I would definitely go back and recommend it.

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.
