We arrived for a 3 night pre-booked stay, at around 4pm, to find the pub closed and in total darkness. There is no network signal in the village on either 02 or Tesco mobile, so we were unable to ring them. Went for drive and returned after 5pm. Landlady Hazel showed us to our room, which was in an adjoining... More

Day 4 hiking the Yorkshire wolds way and a welcome stop after taking a tumble and damaging my arm. The landlady Hazel was really helpful as was her 'new' chef who provided an ice pack and carried the bags to my room. Food was excellent, French onion soup followed by a crayfish pasta, delicious, comfortable room and clean bathroom. Chef... More

We chose this on the recommendation of a friend as we herd the chef had changed. On the whole the food was average and my meal arrived cold. The sauce for the pasta was tasteless and when bringing it to the attention of the staff no one wanted to listen. Staff more interested in talking amongst themselves than helping the... More

Stayed on the 27th of September for one night with bed and breakfast as our daughter was leaving for University. Lovely quiet surroundings so we expected a silent night after next door neighbours kept us up all night the night before. Incredibly we were in a room above the kitchen with thin walls so as the chef cleaned his pans... More

Just spent two marvellous days in north new bald which is a beautiful place to visit. The gnu inn was obviously a popular place with the locals to dine, and I have to say I am not surprised. The food is superb and mostly local produce. The chef produces some wonderful plates of food and I could have stayed there... More

A friend and I stayed here for one night as we tackled the Yorkshire Wolds Way Walk. I met Hazel, the landlady, when I dropped off some luggage the previous day - she was also there to greet us when we arrived after 19 miles of walking in hot weather. She was quick to serve us with liquid refreshment! After... More
