My wife and I stayed here prior to a 60th birthday party. When we arrived we were met on the car park and shown straight to our room in the annex. This saved us taking our baggage in and then out again to the annex. The room was clean and tidy the heating had been put on for our arrival... More

The room was a good size and great for our dog as the b&b is dog friendly. Only niggle was a very small tv hard to watch from bed. Breakfast was as good as it gets. One... More

We had a great 3 night stay here. The staff were very welcoming and the breakfasts lovely. Good quiz night on the Wednesday! Nearby Carriages restaurant was good albeit pricey and there is also a Wetherspoons.

The rooms are located in an annexe at the rear of the building. Room 2 is very spacious and well appointed, the en-suite wet room was really cool. Michael was very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. Each room has an allocated parking space but parking is very tight and unsuitable for anything larger than a "mini". The breakfasts were...

We stayed here last weekend en route to Newcastle. The staff were really friendly and our room, which was situated in a converted barn behind the pub, was very roomy and clean. Despite being in the centre of a knaresborough, which was a busy little town, we had our own parking space by our room. The room was extremely comfortable... More

Recently visited the Old Royal Oak with my husband, sister and brother in law. Fantastic place, excellent breakfast. Rooms very clean with all amenities. Staff excellent and good entertainment. It is also dog friendly with excellent walks and a train station near by if you want to visit York. There is castle grounds with excellent views.
