Firstly there are some bad points about this inn. For the price the rooms are small and old fashioned, the shower was pretty disappointing and the bed not great but then I guess this is what you pay for a room in a lovely village in what is arguably one of the nicest parts of the dales. On the upside... More

Just had the Meat and Potato pie,absolutely gorgeous,one of the best pie's i have had in recent times,as where the copious amounts of "Black Gold" ale that was consumed.If you should bring a dog,which are welcome,a little doggy treat is on hand.Good Value for money,in a great location.

Me and the wife stayed here 9-13 June 2014. Lovely village, lovely pub with walks from the door. Because of age and arthritis we need "easy" walks and there are plenty in this area of the Dales. The room we had was fine (twin beds), clean and an excellent working shower. The bar had a good selection of real ales... More

Visited today with our miniature schnauzer and was made very welcome. We sat in a room with a lovely log fire, food was well presented and tasty with a huge pot of tea. Staff was friendly and even gave Millie our dog a free biscuit and drink. Menu provided an excellent choice with a mini menu for dogs too :).... More

Called in for an impromptu evening meal mid week, but were disappointed with the quality of the food. The fish pie was bland and lacked any flavour, gammon and eggs - eggs were hard and ham was thin. The pub was friendly and welcoming - even the dog was fed biscuits!

Ate here with a group of friends on Saturday night. It's a very nice pub with good ambience, friendly staff and a good range of real ales. We had to wait quite a while for our food although they did have a big party in and we were told this would be the case and we weren't in a hurry.... More

A friendly typical dales pub of great character, with some excellent beers, where the food can be gargantuan, but often not the better for it. For the price, I thought the room poor value, and the bathroom smelt of drains, but the breakfast made up for it, even though again there was probably too much. Whilst the above would not... More

We stayed here for one night whilst doing part of the dales way. Probably the most friendly welcome at a pub! They obviously love dogs here and ours was treated to a dog biscuit on arrival. Very relaxing spot out the front even though it is on the road it is a very quiet one and gets the evening sun.... More
