We had a very nice lunch here on our recent visit to the dales. The staff were welcoming and helpful. We sat in a cosy corner by a warming log fire and had nicely prepared Paninis and Black Sheep bitter. It was quite busy but we were not rushed and had a very relaxing stop. We will be back

We attended for the New Years eve function which was arrival drinks, three course meal, entertainment and champagne at midnight which all sounds good for £50 a head. We got there and it lacked atmosphere and no sign of entertainment. We had our arrival drink well my wife did as the mulled wine offered I do not like and I... More

Dear Sirs I thank you for your feedback. While I am aware that there were certainly issues with the entertainment on New Year’s Eve - issues that both the agent and ourselves made great efforts to resolve - due to the short notice that was given we were unsuccessful in finding a replacement and were left, unfortunately with the highly...

We stayed here recently at a family gathering and could not praise it more highly. The Food was excellent, service excellent and setting again superb! Thank you so much to all concerned! I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone. We have also eaten at the CB several times and would also recommend for good food.

We stayed at the sister hotel, the CB Inn earlier this year where the food was amazing. Decided to try this one and to our delight Dwaine is now chef here. Just had a very tasty, beautifully presented meal. Thx Dwaine and Andre, much appreciated and heartily recommended!

We stayed 2 nights and the location etc. is fantastic. Whilst there wasn't anything specifically bad it was a bit weird as they ran out of most bitters and several menu items. Breakfast very good though.

We are visiting the area and the Punch Bowl is highly rated in our accommodation's visitor book but our experience and a few of the recent recent reviews on this website do suggest that something isn't right here. On our visit, the staff didn't give us any confidence they had managed a pub by struggling to pour a decent pint,... More

We have stayed here in the past but at present we prefer the CB Inn (3 miles over the hill). Detoured from the Herriot Way to have lunch here. Lovely views over Swaledale. Only had paninis but they were good, if a bit pricey. Coffee good (with mint chocolate!). Service friendly.

Semi-regular visitors over the past 6 years or more the Punch Bowl has always been a reliable little treat but the most recent visit really makes us think the management have taken their eye off the ball. The good - room was as cute and clean as ever, hotel felt as welcoming as ever and views and setting remain amazing.... More

We have regularly eaten at the restaurant over the last few years, and have normally found it a bit over priced but decent. However, I think the chef must either be on holiday or new as the food has taken a nose dive. Before ordering the staff asked that because they had two parties of 8 to cater for, could... More
