Stayed in Starbotton for four nights, our party of six ate in the pub two of the four evenings. Mike the landlord was pleasant company, chatted and laughed all evening. The food was excellently cooked and presented by his wife. The open fire made the experience more enjoyable. Would definitely visit again when in that part of the country

We recently stayed for a weeks Holiday in the village, and often called in or sat outside enjoying the great weather. The meals are true home cooked food served in a lovely cosy Dales pub with a nice pint or three. Excellent service and thanks for everything we will call in again soon..

Another enjoyable evening at the Fox and Hounds. Even when a large party of Americans with varied exacting needs were present, our genial and expansive hosts were able to rustle up our dinners in short order. We can recommend the generous Steak and Ale pie, so make sure you are hungry enough to really enjoy it. We really appreciated the... More

This is such a shame. The setting is beautiful but the owner/staff are unwelcoming/rude and the food is dreadful. I called in for lunch with my family a few days ago and the empty bar should have been a warning. The area is rich in great produce so how can they get it so wrong? I dared to ask for... More

Welcoming landlord & lady which hand in hand with fabulous home cooked food is a real find. Nothing is too much trouble even with my broken foot in plaster, the pub is suitable for anyone & the menu has a wide variety for all.

Having read the reviews we planned to stop only for a quick drink outside during our Buckden Pike walk. Turns out it was absolutely peeing down with rain (ah, a British summertime!) so we thought we'd nip inside for lunch, to shelter and warm up. "No Dogs". We asked whether it would be possible to sit in the very corner... More

Me and my husband called in for a drink on our way to Starbotton from Kettlewell, I asked for half of lager and a pint of Black Sheep, when he put the half of lager on the bar it looked very cloudy, at first I thought it was the glass until I tasted it -YUK!!! I think my face said... More
