4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed three nights in the Lavender Room while on a house-hunting trip in North Yorkshire and were very comfortable. We had a king-size bed and a huge walk in shower in a super bathroom that also had a bath. The room was vaulted and spacious, and we appreciated the daily bottled water and the cafetière coffee. The bed, though,... More

My wife and I stayed in the Rose Cottage with our daughter and friend. Crayke village location was perfect, just a short drive from York. Cottage was wonderful. Dinner and breakfast were both superb. Can't think of anything that could be improved. Can perhaps be best described as "casual elegance".

The room, staff and food were excellent ruined only by being buzzed by flies in the evening and morning, while eating. The room in the courtyard was very well equipped. The selection of drinks were extensive.

I will review the restaurant separately - see review under Durham ox restaurant This is inn is set in a small sleepy countryside village with views over the fields. The 'Green' room in which we stayed was of a very good size with an excellent large bed and a separate area where the tv was situated with a sofa bed... More

Have been here a couple of times now and love it. Food is lovely, consistent quality. Friendly service, private rooms for large parties. Between 5:45 and 7:00 you can order from 7 mains for £7, making it a great deal for families. Lovely location from which to have a pre or post dinner walk.

A beautiful pub with a lovely outdoor seating area, all made better with a wonderful friendly cat that my children adored! The food was fantastic, with the boys opting for burgers, the lamb tagine for myself and my daughter had... More

The title says it all! We arrived for lunch on Monday 13th July, surprised to find the car park overflowing. We were greeted by very friendly bar staff and shown to a table at the front of this delightful country pub. We both opted for fish and chips which were beautifully presented and tasted delicious. I followed with sticky toffee... More
