Our room was really comfortable with superb views over Swaledale; breakfasts were freshly prepared and a fine start to a day's walking; dinners were imaginative, well cooked and presented and SO tasty. All the staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. All of this in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK. UNBEATABLE. NB free wifi is in the... More

We enjoyed our stay, weather was incredible. Found Punch Bowl to be more restaurant than Dales pub and although very well presented lacking in that "down to Earth" Yorkshire atmosphere and character. Residents seem to eat and go to bed. No evening "chit chat" in the bar over a glass or two :-( Didn't really like it that the till... More

Lovely setting and an immaculate room with a beautiful view. Staff were friendly and helpful and we enjoyed the food both at breakfast and in the evening. There is little phone signal but I rarely had signal anywhere in this area. The wifi was available in the bar and was sometimes accessible from the room too. The area is great... More

The punch bowl has Excellent food in an excellent location with beautiful views and great walks to go on. The only negative thing I can think of is that the extra child bed was too hard. I would thoroughly recommend this location to anyone.

beautiful setting, excellent room and the food was both breakfast and dinner were brilliant. the staff were very friendly and the room was spotless. I would make sure you do not use your sat nav as this will take you the shortest route which took us across single track roads with blind junctions, I loved it but the wife was... More

My wife and I visited the Punch Bowl Inn for a 3 night midweek stay, in the middle of February 2015, we found the staff to be friendly, our room was very comfortable and nicely decorated as was the on-suite. Breakfast was nicely cooked and with a wide choice, unfortunately the evening meals were a letdown and some of the... More

My boyfriend and I ate at the pub restaurant one evening after reading good reviews. The staff were very attentive and friendly, it was wonderful. The food was delicious - scallops to start followed by lamb at a very reasonable price. I would definitely recommend it.

Have stayed here before but this time my partner and I visited last weeks for 2 nights with 2 friends for a birthday celebration on each night. The first night happened to be steak night. Great value at £11.95 and your first drink at half price. The breakfasts are great and set you up for the day. We spent the... More

Just back from 2 night mid week break here. As vegetarians, we often struggle to get a decent evening meal but thoroughly enjoyed our food both nights. Stayed in room 1 which is a lovely four poster room, the only complaint is this room is directly over the bar and on the first night we were there, there was a... More

If your looking for a quiet break of peace & quiet I wouldn't recommend the punch bowl, It is set in beautiful country side with fantastic views. Food was good but very expensive, we have had a lot better that cost less. Accommodation comfortable & clean, some staff not very warm & welcoming. not worth a second visit
