We didn't stay here but dined here tonight. Service was rather poor, we booked a table for 7pm and ordered starters and main courses, we waited a while for the starters to come. These were good but I think that's because we were starving! It was about 9.30pm before our main courses arrived, looking a little worse for wear (... More

We stayed for two nights in July 2014. One never knows what to expect when you book, how ever first impressions always tell a story, the car park was perfectly situated at the rear of the hotel, the gate adjoining the hotel was also well placed. Booking on was stream less and on entering our room we were very impressed,... More

Thank you to Stella and Stew for organising a surprise party for my husbands special birthday. Although, it was York races , the England match and busy in the pub they were able to accommodate our party of 35 at short notice. The staff couldn't do enough for us and were efficient and friendly. The room we had for the... More

Although this pub used to be an awful oub, it is now, under its new (ish) landlords, by far the best pub on this side of town. It has all the features of a good pub that you might look for; large garden (with play area for kids), ample car park, games machines, dart board, ample tvs showing sky sports,... More

Very nice pub, very friendly and helpful staff, very clean and pretty rooms, generous breakfast, renovated with care and love. Short walk to town, about 10 mins or catch the bus. Recommended.

I adore this place!! The rooms are stunning and beautiful, the staff are fantastic and as for the management, well what can I say, Stella and Stu go above and beyond to make it easier for me being away from home and make me feel like I'm part of the family. I will always praise the shoulder to high heaven... More

Simply put, you need to look after your locals. The landlady is rude & miserable. its a shame because the bar staff are lovely, then when you get raw potatoes instead of chips you wished you hadn't bothered leaving the house!

Poor rooms, food is disgusting, blonde manageress and very rude and dismissive and when you try and complain you are threatened and made to feel like a kid. Use a proper hotel, not one by amateurs. It's a shame the owners have let standards fall, this place used to be good.

I stayed here for 5 nights while working in the area. When I first arrived my room wasn't ready, but this wasn't an issue as they gave me a free upgrade to a double. The staff were very nice and helpful and the rooms were nicely decorated. With my room being above the bar there was a small noise issue,... More
