Coming off a soggy moor we needed a hearty lunch, and we got that - and also a very well cooked and composed lunch as well. The goat's cheese with black pudding was an excellent combination of similar-but-different textures and earthy flavours, and the sweet-sharp of roast beetroot was perfect with gamey rich pan fried pigeon. I had another starter... More

A very warm welcome. Dogs children all welcome!! Room ok but smelt of cigarettes. Food however was brilliant. Good honest local homemade and the biggest breakfast ever. Nothing was too much trouble for the hosts and was on the Dalesway. Would I stay again. Hell yes

This was our second stop on the Dales Way and was a bit of a mixed bag. The pub was fine, the food was really good, but the rooms were very tired and in need of a bit more than just decoration. My en suite worked ok but the tiles were showing their age and the general appearance was quite... More

A very warm welcome on arrival. Lovely room, good shower. Kettlewell is perfect for walking in Wharfedale, Great Whernside, and valley walks. Stunning scenery. Good choice of evening meal and large helpings. Very good breakfast sets you up for the day.

I stayed here with 6 friends on a walking holiday in the dales. We were able to take advantage of the 2 steaks plus a bottle of wine offer for £25. The steak was one of the best I have ever had, and was cooked perfectly.

We stayed at a nearby campsite and went twice to the Bluebell Inn. firstly on Friday night for a drink with our two children and pet dog. Parents will know that being welcome into a pub with children can be a bit hit and miss, but not here....the jovial landlord made us feel very welcome and even gave the kids... More
