We arrived in this North Yorkshire village inn in late afternoon, and were promptly offered help with our luggage, tea and a free ticket to Ripley Castle gardens. The interior of the castle is only permitted as a guided tour, as it still a genuine family home. The room we had was light and clean, although somewhat tired. The bathroom... More

Many thanks for the fair and very informative review. Your comment about allergies should not raise too many concerns as we do have lots of rooms that we do not allow dogs in , so please feel free to ask for one of those if it is required. I am delighted to read that you appreciated our service and the... More

Lovely old Pub and accommodation in a beautiful location. Next door is Ripley's Castle, which is certainly worth wandering thru. Plenty of photo opportunities. Whole stay was very pleasant and comfortable. All staff were attentive and courteous. Breakfasts and dinners were of very good quality.

My husband and I stayed here recently and it was really fantastic. The setting was beautiful and being right next door to Ripley castle encouraged us to take a tour of the Castle and go back in time to discover the history of the village and Castle. We ate in the bar at the Boars Head at lunchtime and it... More

A traditional hotel/Inn just 10 minutes outside Harrogate. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Wonderful location. Rooms very comfortable. They serve a good breakfast. The evening menu is a traditional fare. The bar serves some excellent local beers
