Stayed here for one night, had the Kilburn room as they allow dogs, room was very comfortable with large bathroom,couldn't fault it. Some lovely touches such as a selection of wine in the room at a very fair price. Beautiful surroundings next to, the abbey, great area for walking /cycling. We ate at the Wombwell arms a 15 minute walk... More

We went on a walk around the Sutton Bank area of the south-west North York Moors, then in the afternoon went to Byland Abbey. As we hadn't eaten since breakfast we decided to give this place a try as it was directly opposite the Abbey. It's a very quaint old inn which can clearly cater for larger parties and small... More

Superb lunch of pea and mint soup with huge chunks of lovely granary bread. Tea and lemon drizzel cake later after a tour around the abbey ruins. The decor gave the perfect atmosphere to our veiw of the abbey from the windows. Definately recommend stopping here!

We came across The Abbey Inn by accident when we were diverted along some country lanes on the way to Pickering & was pleasantly surprised. It was a warm, holiday Monday & we sat outside in the garden, in the shadow of Byland Abbey. The Inn was beautiful with a fascinating mixture of interesting furniture & alcoves. We ordered coffee,...

My father had celebrated his 70th Birthday there a few years ago and because we saw a sign for tea room we called in. Weather lovely, fantastic atmosphere, amazing view but more importantly Victoria sandwich... More

Enjoyed a visit to the abbey (beautiful floor tiles!) but very much enjoyed a visit to the abbey Inn. The inn is cosy and extremely pretty. We sat in a room to the right as you enter with absolutely fantastic views of the abbey, and even more interestingly, sculptured faces in the brickwork (reliably informed by staff that this was...

We were visiting Byland Abbey (which is well worth a look) and decided to stop and have lunch at the Abbey Inn, and we were very glad we did. The food was excellent, fresh and plenty of it! My partner & I had the sandwiches which were like doorsteps, the Wensleydale very tasty and the apple chutney delicious. The two... More

We had no idea how great this place would be. We expected the terrific setting but the rooms were both perfect luxury, the welcome and food quite wonderful, and the pub a half mile across the fields had great food and atmosphere. Highest possible recommendation.
