On the last night of our holiday we decided to have a treat and booked in at The Blacksmiths. On entering the bar we were not greeted as we had been all week at other local pubs and restaurants in the area with a friendly, warm welcome. We ordered drinks and were brought over some menus to peruse, when the... More

What an absolute gem of a pub. North Yorkshire is packed with welcoming country pubs serving excellent food, but this is something else. Lovely, friendly service. Our young waitress was delightful. But it's the food that makes it. I had kipper pate which was delicious, followed by beer braised ox cheek. It's one of those dishes that I will dream... More

We went out for lunch. Ordered fish & chips and when it arrived the plate was swimming with grease. The fish had been placed on top of chips without being drained and the fat soaked into the chips and pooled on the plate. Mopped up grease with napkins. Chips were saturated in fat and could not be eaten. Fish was... More

We went to the Blacksmiths after walking out of the nearby White Horse Inn. The Blacksmiths was a pleasant surprise. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a Steak and Crab Salad, both of which were very pleasant. The deserts were also excellent. Ralph our dog was also given a warm welcome. Recommended.

The hotel was just what we had wanted, out of the way and quiet. Fantastic views and location (car would be needed) about 10 minutes drive from Rosedale. We used The Backsmiths as a base to stay at as we wanted to visit surrounding areas. We visited Goathland (Heartbeat Country) and Whitby. After a full day out it was lovely... More

This establishment came recommended to us from friends well versed in Englands gastro-pubs with accommodation. Blacksmiths is a large gastro-pub with rooms situated in the north Yorkshire moors not far from Rosedale. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and the local villages are small, quiet and charming. Ideal for walkers and cyclists alike, and for cyclists Blacksmiths offer a secure lock-up... More

We stayed for one night on saturday. On arrival I have to say we received a luke warm welcome before being shown to our room. The room was a good size and was very light and airy. The bathroom whilst a good size was dated. It reminded me of my grandparents bathroom from when I was a kid. It was... More

If you want time away to relax and visit North Yorkshire this is a really good base. The bar areas and sitting room are first rate. The bar has a good selection of real ales, etc and there was a good atmosphere on each evening we spent in them. Food was excellent and the dining room is lovely. Service is... More
