Took a friend here for a birthday supper. Haven't been probably for 20 years. It is wonderful. The food was exquisite, the interior calm, beautifully laid out and decorated. The staff were attentive but not intrusive. Best of all it was value for money - I had three courses, my friend two (cheapest mains I will point out), a soft... More

What a stunning place! I stayed one night while in the area on business and will most definitely go back. The place is beautifully done, the rooms are spacious, fabulously decorated, comfy beds and luxurious extras such as the Molton Brown toiletries, hand baked biscuits and fresh milk for teas and coffees. The food in the restaurant was absolutely excellent,... More

The king scallops are the best I ve ever tasted- succulent, beautifully presented and the squid superb- bravo. Starter of salmon superb too. The rack of lamb so... More

We chose the General Tarleton to celebrate my twin nephews' thirty birthday with family. Every time I visit the GT I am amazed at the quality of the service, their ability to offer the whole menu for a private party and serve it hot, and of course the quality of the food which is always outstanding. We had a superb... More

Booked for an overnight Saturday stay. Ideal location for Knaresborough and Harrogate. Lovely rooms to a high standard. Superb restaurant featuring local produce - lots of game on the menu. Quirky layout. Also has brasserie in addition to main restaurant which lies in an indoor courtyard. Not cheap but value for money at today's prices - would heavily recommend for... More

Our TV wasn't working so we bought this to attention of management and within 30 minutes it was fixed. The food was stunning and... More

I stayed here for an overnight treat in January as I had heard good things about the chef and kitchen; this wasn't just good, it was exceptional. The ambience, food, decor, staff were all excellent - could not fault a thing and every detail attended to. Perfect!
