On arrival we were shown to our accom, the room was drab, no valance or pillowcases on the bed. Cobwebs everywhere and generally unclean. However pillowcases were supplied once... More

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

Stayed for two nights but wished we had left after the first. Basic room with white walls and no pictures. A bed a chair and a wardrobe. It felt like a prison cell and the heating didn't work so she brought out an electric fire to plug in. The bed felt like sleeping on scaffold boards so after two days... More
