Had dinner at The Board Inn. The place is lovely and the service was excellent. The menu looked very good. All four of us had a fish main course and sadly we were all disappointed with the fish - soggy plaice and overcooked haddock. The chips and vegetables were excellent and the desserts were fantastic - the home made ice... More

Our third visit to The Board Inn. Quite simply you must go here. Karen and Alistair are brilliant hosts nothing is too much trouble. You always get a warm welcome and there are lots of little touches that make a big difference. Lealholm itself is a pretty little village and the Board Inn is the epicentre. Its close to the... More

Have been here a few times and must say have never been disappointed. The place itself is set in a lovely position. Able to sit outside if weather is good. Food is delicious-weather it's a sandwich, Sunday lunch or meal on an evenin. A must if you are in the area

Searched the internet for a dog friendly place to stay and wow did we hit the jackpot with Ash Cottage. The cottage is so quaint and comfortable and, as for the Board Inn, we can't rate it high enough. The food is exceptional and the owners and staff are very friendly. We, and that includes our dog, were made to... More

My wife and I stayed at Ash Cottage over the weekend of the 2nd May 14 on a motorbike trip with friends. The cottage has 3 bedrooms with en-suite facilities, it is spacious and well kept with everything you would expect to hand. On our arrival late on a cold Friday evening we were met by the owner who showed... More

We've stayed at the Board on several occasions over the last couple of years and have enjoyed it every time, such that going anywhere else for a short break anywhere else in and around the Moors these days isn't even considered. Karen, Alastair and their team are all fabulous and nothing is ever too much trouble. The food is simply... More

My third stay here, my husband's umpteenth. Its difficult to express the absolute delight of a meal and a stay here. The food is locally sourced, superbly cooked and presented - be it dinner or breakfast, the quality and attention to detail is second to none, Their rooms are charming. The location idyllic. I cannot recommend The Board Inn highly... More

Beautiful setting. Guided there by my Doggie Pub App. Will certainly stay next time. Only went for lunch, which was very tasty - and as for the puddings....well.... Beer very well kept. People and dogs given warm welcome by very friendly (but not over friendly) staff.

We've visited the Board Inn several times over the last few years but this time our friends stayed in the rooms. Although these are fairly small, they are clean, well presented and of a high standard. Breakfast was excellent, as was the other meals taken, good portion size, made to order from fresh quality ingredients. An emphasis on local produce... More
