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*

Warm friendly welcoming pub nice staff great location by river. Beer I'm told was good. My wine was lovely. But food just very ordinary. My meal was pretty poor dry overcooked pheasant Sounded good but on delivery nothing special The ordinary pub food from regular menu looked better We did have Sunday lunch there another time and it was great

We booked a break using an expensive gift voucher and were given room 2. The pub has two dining areas and a small bar area. We paid a £10 per night surcharge to take our very quiet small Bichon dog. This resulted our being forced to eat in the bar area ( table 15). We booked the table for 7pm... More

Superb location on the outskirts of the village by the stone bridge over the River Ure. Traditional pub with small 'rooms' within an open area with low ceilings and loads of old wood on view! Large beer garden to the rear on the banks of the river. Great range of real ales on tap and the usual lagers, wines etc.... More

Called in here on a trip back from Scotland as it was so highly recommended on TripAdvisor and is only a couple of minutes drive from the A1(M) [or rather the A6055 which runs parallel to it]. Can only agree with previous reviewers, all the food looked good (although we both opted for the meat pie on the specials board... More

Stayed for 1 night in this wonderful country pub. As soon as we arrived we were welcomed like old friends. The staff and owner Jill was very hospitable and nothing was too much trouble. Lovely room, very comfy bed and fantastic full english breakfast. Would have no hesitation in recommending for a short overnight stay and plenty to see in... More

Some friends and I recently visited this delightful pub on a trip to the sheep show at nearby Masham. The staff were extremely polite and helpful. We all chose the wonderdful home made meat pie. We all received a large portion of pie with chips and vegetables. It is nice that pubs still make home made meat pie in these... More
