4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Have now stayed again for our 42nd Anniversary and once again had a great time, the biggest bed we have ever seen and so comfortable, lovely sitting area with settee and chairs, large bathroom, nice and warm, good quality teas and coffees, fresh milk, flap jacks, and fresh cake for afternoon tea if we wanted it. All in all great.... More

We ate here 14th January 2015 as an impulse stop on our way to Skipton. We'd heard good things about The Tempest so decided to have lunch. Absolutely nothing, at all, could be faulted about the pub, the first class bar and waiting service and quality of the food we chose. Beer was spot on too - real ale, local... More

My husband booked this place for my birthday treat. Upon arrival we were welcomed by the lovely lady in reception. We were offered the free cake and cookies which looked delicious. She told us where our room was and we went on our way. We entered our room (11) which is stunning. Very warm, cosy and fresh. We went over... More

We visited this country inn after my father-in-law had bought us vouchers as a gift and I can safely say it was the best gift we could ever have received. With our comfortable, spacious en-suite room that housed a huge, luxurious bed (room 22) and the free cakes along with some gorgeous truffles in our room on arrival we were... More

We have stayed at The Tempest a few times now and cannot rate it high enough. The rooms are clean spacious and have a great finish. There is complimentary homemade cake and cookies on arrival for guests too. The beer is fine country ale and the food is 2nd to none. The staff are always courteous and I'm struggling to... More

I rang before hand and had the misfortune to deal with woman with a snotty attitude on the phone. I was informed it is not possible to book but was quiet today anyway so getting a table wouldn't be a problem. We made the 40 minute trip to get to there. Place was packed, informed there were no tables in... More

Sorry for your disappointment at the Tempest and even more sorry to see that you wont be coming again. Lastly I don't agree with the latter of your review and if this was the case why was it busy when you arrived? When you spoke to our polite receptionist she did advise that the dining room was fully booked and... More

We were a party of four for the NY Eve gala dinner and entertainment. We have been attending this event for several years and usually stay overnight, as we did this time. On the positive side, the place is beautiful and atmospheric; the rooms are nicely equipped and good value. The restaurant has a good reputation for its food. Our... More

To see your annoyance on trip adviser is some what disappointing especially as we have served you for many years. I did... More

We had a fantastic meal at The Tempest Arms.... can't shout it from the roof tops enough really! The portion sizes are massive, great value for money - Three courses completely finished me off! Satisfied was an understatement. Steak was the main course for the majority of us and it was cooked to perfection, its quite rare to go somewhere... More
