The pub inside is drab , unwelcoming and no atmosphere at all .After being sat for a while we realised that the one member of waiting staff wasn't coming over to give us menu nor take an order...

We found this pub on our last night of staying in a cottage in Pickering. We had an excellent meal and were disappointed that we hadn't found it sooner. The staff were very efficient and attentive, and the food was excellent - we had chicken goujons and soup to start, with gammon and steak and ale pie for mains. Just... More

We stayed here for two nights recently and were shown to our room through a gate in the beer garden. Upon entering the room we realised it was only a basic set-up, two beds pushed together with a quilt on each one, and the place hadn't seen a paintbrush for donkeys! Only one bedside lamp, one chair, no table, no... More
