Popped in for tea on way back to Leeming Bar. We got there about 4.45pm and they didn't start food until 5.30, which wasn't a problem as the traditional hand pulled beer was good quality. Ordered the food (I had fish and chips and the Mrs had ham, eggs and chips) and when they arrived, the size of the portions... More

This is not a "Hotel". It is a locals' pub with rooms. The room was very clean and obviously recently refurbished. Room facilities were average. The bar and dining area is basic. The area behind the carvery servery which was in the middle of the restaurant and visible to diners was not very tidy with a floor mop resting against... More

If you want a friendly welcome and a nice pub meal i would pay a little more and go elsewhere. The food was bad! The bar staff were unfriendly and reminded me of a scene from American ware wolf in London. If you like your lasagne with pasta i would go to iceland.... was glad to leave as felt as... More

I booked this hotel for my husband's 60th birthday trip after finding it on hotels.com. At first we were a little disappointed as we seemed to have been given a room that was away from everyone else, at the back of the hotel. All other areas around us seemed to be undergoing refurb. This did not last though. The room... More

My husband and I were in town for several days and we stopped here on a few occasions for drinks. We sat inside and outside. Friendly bar staff, reasonably priced drinks and a great place to people watch as it's situated in Market Place, the most central location in Leyburn.

Had lunch here, the steak was spot on, the Whitby seafood was ok, would have paid more for more of it. Strongbow red fruit on draught for cider drinkers. Sat outside when we went back one evening. Lovely staff, pleasant atmosphere. Everyone dining seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Great carvery for Sunday lunch with a selection of meat and vegetables along with traditional Yorkshire pudding and gravy / condiments. Great dales pub experience with friendly staff and lots of character. Very tasty beef - melt in the mouth. Would definitely go back again! Very good value (£6.95)

We were staying in a nearby B&B and called here for an evening meal. My wife's wine was in a dirty glass and my beer was cloudy. Should have left at this point but carried on for a meal. Both meals very average and the place could have been cleaner. I wouldn't consider returning when there are other places to... More
