We had a lovely pub lunch here on our trip to Helmsley last weekend. The food was great, the staff were really nice and friendly, it served good sized portions and was very well priced. We were very pleased thank you :)

The food here is always up to scratch. Always have a great choice on the board to compliment the regular menu. Look forward to our next visit for good banter with all the staff. Wish Craig all the best wherever he finds himself. Doug n Gill

Called in today with the other half, we both had the roast beef and it was delicious. Couldn't knock a thing about it, meat was lovely, veg cooked nice. The staff were really helpful and moved us to a better table when one became free. Would definitely go again!

We stopped in here on our way down to London as a stopover for the night. Helmsley itself is a lovely quaint little town with plenty of scenic areas around about to visit. We arrived at the hotel in the afternoon and were greeted by friendly staff. Very helpful and helped out by letting us park the bike in the... More

We called in here last Saturday for lunch, most tables were full but we managed to get a seat by the door, I ordered two panini sand an extra portion of chips. We waited 40 minutes and had to ask again at the bar before getting the food, it was only ok and the chips not that hot, so wouldn't... More

Called In for a pint yesterday with my son (orange and soda for him as he's only 11) just wanted to say what a friendly girl was working behind the bar. Took the time out to talk to my son about his Dispicable Me poster and was just really good at her job. Having worked in the pub trade sometimes... More

We went to this pub for dinner one Sunday and had a really lovely Roast Beef and Yorkshire pudding at a reasonable price. While they promote it as rare, it was well done but still lovely to eat. There were plenty of vegetables served as well. Excellent.

Called in for tea and I was told the steak pie was good so that's what I ordered. When it came it was huge and I must admit one of the best steak pies I have every had. The meat was nice and tender with no fatty bits, pastry was perfect and thick gravy. Overall the pub was clean and... More

Stayed here for 1 night with my husband. Admittedly chose this hotel because it was a bit cheaper than the others available. On arrival they appeared not to have our booking. Fortunately there were rooms available. Had to pay upfront, which always makes me a bit suspicious! Also added £2 for using a debit card. There's no dedicated parking with... More

I stopped here with a friend for a meal passsing through Helmsley. The food was great and the service was fantastic. A very short waiting time for the food to arrive and the staff were very friendly. A very quiet, very nice place to get a meal. Highly recommended.
