Stayed two nights in the Kilburn Room at The Abbey Inn. The room was lovely and the en suite bathroom was really roomy. Despite the rain on the first day we really enjoyed our stay, and Karen, the manager, took the time to answer all our queries on the history of the area, in addition to providing excellent breakfasts.

My partner and I recently stayed in the Byland Suite and wow what a fabulous room and view of the Abbey.......Perfect location, value for money and Karen, our host, made us very welcome. Stayed at Byland Inn because The Black Swan, Oldstead was fully booked and only a mile away we were able to enjoy another fantastic meal at The... More

We were met by Karen the manager who is very lovely whilst still remaining very professional. Karen showed us to our room and when the door was opened we were met with... More

We stopped here for refreshment prior to visiting the abbey itself. Coffee was lovely, the size of the cake portion was something to behold, and the fruit scone was out of this world (luckily we had our straight from the oven). Not the cheapest place but worth a visit. Quite fancy giving the b&b a go.

Was originally hoping to stay here but couldn't get a room. Popped in for some lunch after visiting Byland Abbey. I love the view of the Abbey from the windows. Food was very nice! Ideal place for something to eat after visiting the Abbey; I think it is run by English Heritage, which makes sense.

We stopped here for tea and cake prior to visiting the abbey ruins. The usual Yorkshire welcome was somewhat lacking here and although our order was accepted we had the distinct feeling that what they really wanted to do was to close up even though it was only 3.45pm. The tea and cake was really nice just a shame about... More

Hi There, Firstly, may I apologise for the length of time it has taken to respond to your review. Secondly may I apologise for your experience and the lack of Yorkshire hospitality you encountered upon visiting our tea rooms. Our friendly staff, Yorkshire welcome and ample portion sizes are something we at Byland Abbey Inn pride ourselves on and I'm... More

Was passing on a nice day and decided to visit the abbey, followed by refreshments at the Inn. It was quite busy for early afternoon on a weekday, and the meals looked very good indeed, but I decided to restrict myself to a cup of tea and a piece of cake. Everything was great - the setting, the tea and... More

Popped for lunch on sunny Sunday. Been once before, this time shared the Yorkshire platter, what a feast. Kids had bacon sandwiches ( kids version) and they could have shared as too big, sandwiches not the kids! Only downside was wasps, we and other people had to come inside due to wasps, lots of them.

Popped in one afternoon while visiting the Abbey and enjoyed the quick stop off. Smashing little cafe with reasonable prices and extremely friendly people. Very pleasant indeed. Quaint is perhaps the best way to describe both the café and overall surroundings.
