We also used a Groupon voucher which was excellent value for money. We were only a hour away from where we live but that shortened our time in travel to the places we visited and as the pub is dog friendly we were able to take our small dog with us which was nice as we had planned to do a lot of walking.The staff were friendly and the room was clean and looked nice, the only slight problem was that the bed was very low down and my father in law has a bad back so he found it a bit uncomfortable. The room had usual drinks-making facilities and a slide door to the shower and toilet within the room. The breakfast was a bit strange as all we were offered was the full english (which was very nice) and tea or coffee, I presume that if you wanted anything else they expected you to ask.The hotel is in a good location for visiting the Dales, Skipton, Malham Cove/Gordale Scar Bolton abby/railway Harrogate, Swinsty & Fewston reservoirs and if you call to patley bridge there is an excellent butchers that sell tasty pork pies and pastys.The food served in the pub all looked very nice and the menu was very interesting with a lot of local produce used. The pub is on the main A59 and it is a very busy road but after about 8pm traffic eased off. We hope to visit again in the future.
