Stopped for Sunday lunch a couple of weeks ago. Had the carvery, good selection of meat, nice veg but mash potato a bit of a let down ( 1 slice or 2?) at £12 a bit pricey too. They need to remember they're in yorkshire and stop charging southern prices. We like value for money up here!

We had a lovely family meal for 9 and everything was perfect. Wonderful food, great service and superb ambience. The staff were friendly and helpful guiding the choice of dinner when asked for help and coping with the high spirits of the evening. Good value flavoursome food .

Stayed here for one night, 8th August. My wife booked a nights B&B through Groupon for this hotel. We upgraded the room, it was a lovely room with a spacious shower room. The staff were very welcoming and very helpful. Would recommend this to anyone wanting a break in a beautiful part of the country.

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at The Pinch Bowl Inn using a Groupon voucher. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area, the room was excellent with a really good shower. Food was first class with a wide choice for breakfast and evening meal, we ate there on all 3 evenings. The Punch Bowl is... More

The setting, the staff, the room, the food were all fantastic. We had an evening meal which was freshly cooked and delicious and good value. We will... More

We went into reeth to eat as several pubs there but the breakfast was outstanding. Not one complaint, the bed was so comfortable, the room clean, the staff really... More

My husband, baby daughter & I travelled here for a weekend break like most using the Groupon voucher. Our room was nice and spacious and furnished with a lovely 4 poster bed. The decoration was a little tired however and could benefit from a lick of paint. There was also a resident swift nest in the top corner of one... More

My husband & I travelled here for a weekend break like most using the Groupon voucher. We were allocated room 11 which is in the annex and benefits from a 'private cottage' feeling given you have a small balcony and front door. This suited us very well and the room was fantastic. Very well decorated and furnished with and amazing... More

Like most reviewers, we stayed here on a Groupon deal which at £129 for 3 nights bed and breakfast was amazing value. The room (3) was lovely with a big comfy bed and stunning views out onto the dales. Bathroom was perfect with a very powerful shower. No bath but then we knew that when we booked. Breakfast was great... More
