Ian and his team made my parents Ruby wedding anniversary celebration extra special. We were in the private dining room and Ian and his team treated us with 5 star treatment. He was attentative and the service was exemplary which made it so special for mum and dad. He went above and beyond to make sure we had an amazing... More

Visited for evening meal and an overnight stay based on a recommendation and generally positive views but were sadly disappointed. There was no atmosphere whatsoever in the modern dining area (although the old unused pub area looked much more inviting). Service was good but the food was bland and underwhelming making us question whether it was worth the prices charged... More

We recently stayed in one of the garden rooms, which was spacious and well appointed. Comfortable bed, fantastic walk in shower and nice fireplace. Garden was lovely and the view from it delightful. The pub itself is well decorated and the breakfast provided huge choice and certainly did not disappoint. They sell great wine and real ale and it's well... More

Enjoyed a lovely meal on Friday, 6 March. Our first visit and not only was the food excellent but a lovely ambience. Scallops, lamb, fish and chips very nice. Lovely breads to start with. Staff very attentive. Will be back as we live locally. The decor very nice - a mixture of very traditional and modern - works very well.

I have just returned from a stay at the Carpenters Arms with a large groups of friends which I had organised. The service from the staff was the best I have ever experienced with their care for details and cursteuous manner. The rooms were a delight with great beds! and lots of lovely details which made this stay very special.... More

Basic fayre. The bed was ok. The room was not dirty - but could have seen a damp cloth last month! Very poor value for money. Looked like a chain hotel but much pricier. Would not recommend. However, the views are lovely- even in November.

I've been here for a food a few times in the past and I can honestly say that over time the quality of the food has got progressively worse. The decor is lovely and the staff attentive but when I pay over £25 for Steak & chips the very least I expect is for it to have been rested and... More

Nice terrace with view of vale of York. Food was good -We chose the seafood sharing board which was HUGE and then were presented with our main... More
