This hotel is in my local area. I've been there twice in the past two weeks. The food is normally well above average and I can't fault it. Today it wasn't quite as good as usual for some reason, it took ages to arrive and we only had a sandwich and ploughmans. It looked sort of thrown together. Going to... More

We visited goathland for the day and stopped for a drink in the "aidenfield arms". It is a lovely country pub friendly and cosy. They offer family rooms so family's can be together. There is a snug and a main bar. Value for money and plenty off staff serving

we found the staff very rude. We had looked forward to eating there and being in such a famous pub. The staff didnt seem to embrace our enthusiasm at all. We had a 6 year old and we only allowed into the family room. Food disgusting. Our little girl was poorly afterwards.

We stayed 2 nights very recently. Before booking we read reviews and looked at photos so knew exactly what to expect. It did what it said on the tin! Guest rooms were dated and more traditional in their decor but we knew that before we stayed. Despite being dated, they were very clean and comfortable. Pub grub was more like... More

This place smells, the staff don't seem to have any leadership and the food is poor! The staff here seem to all be foreign with a poor understanding of English. The breakfast was very poor and was served to the agonising and totally inappropriate beat of rap music with foul language! We were with our 6 year old son! There... More

Sorry you felt that you could not talk to either of the managers or owners that were available that day. Our hotel doesn’t smell we do however in season often see a few hundred people a day. Yes some of our staff are international students but as Baked Beans are not on any of our menus I have no problem... More

Recently whilst staying in the area, we booked a 'special night' to stay at the Goathland Hotel. Happily they accepted dogs. Evening meal was between 7 and 8pm. Nothing special, we ate it in the Snug Bar, with our well behaved dog. Breakfast, 8.30 to 9am, seated at the table we were told we could not eat there with the... More

Thank you for thinking of us as a special night when we are just a pub. As I (Hannah-Manager) served you your meal, chatted to you and even arranged some off menu changes to your meal that you then said you thoroughly enjoyed to the point of telling me your steak was cooked perfectly. I hesitate to understand any complaints... More

I visited The Goathland Hotel for lunch last week and as usual I really enjoyed. I always visit this pub when I am on holiday in the area and have never had cause for complaint. I had the burger and chips which was served both hot and fresh and was very tasty. I always enjoy the food here. The barmaid... More

We stayed at the 'Aidensfield Arms' for four nights 8th to 12th June. The hotel is advertised as a pub with rooms, and as long as you go there and stay with this in mind you will not be disappointed. The hotel and village is famous as its role in the TV series Heartbeat, and during the day the hotel... More
