My sister and her husband held their wedding at the Tempest Arms in July. We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights with breakfast and ate twice in the restaurant. The rooms are spacious, lovely, very clean and all unique. The beds are very comfortable and in some rooms enormous. We enjoyed the hottub experience and despite being on the... More

No promotional dates available, no cards available and not able to stamp the cards from other Individual Inns (as has been the practice since the loyalty cards were introduced). No credit given for drinks bought until new cards are available. A dissapointing loyalty system. Lovely place, good staff, been going years but loyalty? sadly not.

Oh dear me Peter! You have got yourself in a right pickle havent you! The loyalty card isnt an Individual Inns card to be used at all Inns it is merely a card to promote sales at an Individual Inn, the new scheme which started last year! Changed the inter house collection of stamps when buying pints. The inn in... More

We stumbled across this gorgeous place Friday evening whilst looking for somewhere to eat. We were soooo glad we stopped here! Five star food in our opinion and five star service! All the staff were so friendly and a real credit to the owners/managers! We are attending a wedding in the area and gutted that we hadn't booked to stay... More

Busy bustling bar on arrival at 5.00. Managed to get a table for 2 to enjoy a cocktail pre meal. As ever a fantastic meal and dessert served with a smile by the exuberant attentive mine host Martin Clarkson! The Tempest Arms never fails to satisfy. The food is first class, the atmosphere great, there is something for everyone. Yes... More

Beautiful place, great hospitality, perfect location. Great food. Will definitely be back! Room was large yet cosy. Very comfy bed with perfect pillows. Food portions are huge yet tasty. Right on the edge of the North Yorkshire countryside. Wish I had more time to explore.
