Been several times to sit and eat in the beer garden overlooking the river. This time had steak and ale pie. It was jammed packed with the best quality meat, and accompanied with well cooked chips, and great veg. Well done . Will be back

We visited this pub for a light lunch on 24th April being a family of 8 and a 6 month old baby. On asking if we could have a table for eight the girl behind the bar said." You people do like to give us problems don't you . not a good start. The lady who took the order for... More

It was a lovely day today and we went out to the dales looking for somewhere near a river where we could enjoy a nice meal. This pub hit the spot, right on the River Ure. It was a great find. The food was delicious and the staff were kind and helpful.

We were staying at The Old Coach House for the Easter weekend and were recommended The Bull (which is only 2 miles from there) by Amy, upon arrival on Friday evening. Not wanting to drive too far (after a 4.5 hour drive to Yorkshire) we decided to take Amy's recommendation and we were very glad we did. The food was... More

What a little gem this place is brilliant the food the atmosphere the room the people the whole package. Not to be missed even if you only drop in for a drink. It's no wonder it was runner up best pub in Yorkshire it should have won. One warning it is very busy but worth it.

We'd hired a small motor boat from Boroughbridge Marina (look them up!) for a few hours and wanted to extend our allure to the Ure by finding an eatery near the river following our trip. The water is not navigable for quite a distance downstream from The Bull Inn but the pub garden extends right down to the waters edge... More

Travelled through here after seven hours hiking around Malham, we were ready for food and the staff here didn't disappoint. Very attentive from the start, the meals were served hot, and quickly. Good food, excellent homemade Steak & Ale pie with a lovely crust. Would recommend to anyone passing this way.

We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay in this lovely traditional country pub. A great mix of locals and visitors in the pub with a very friendly atmosphere and great food. We would recommend this pub to anyone. The landlady really is an excellent host. It's location on the banks of the River Ure must be even better in the... More

Beautiful, well cooked and well presented food in a lovely cosy country pub. Great attentive waitress and very welcoming for families. High chair provided for the toddler we took along. Great menus and choice for kids. We will be back! We can't wait to sit out on the terrace in summer! 5*
