What a truly awful establishment. I could forgive the screaming children running around, akin to a marauding army, if I didn't have to endure the smug face of the proprietor, as he lorded over his empire. Certainly enough to put a diner off of their supper ...if you're lucky enough to get what you order. Praise must be given though... More

You would struggle to find worse food anywhere in England! The "chef" obviously hasn't had any training at all and he really should have learnt how to cook before being let loose in a restaurant kitchen! A microwaveable ready meal from a supermarket would put this chef's food to shame. Please don't waste your hard-earned money on this slop.

Don't stay at this hotel. Poor hygiene standards - especially of toilets - very unsatisfactory. We had booked for two nights but left after one. Quality of food also poor.

We booked this hotel for a 1 night stay for £65 for me and the wife. The price was very good but sadly the hotel wasn't the best. It just looks tired, with a little bit of effort this hotel could be very nice. The toilet seat was loose, all it needed was 1 screw tightened, the silicone round the... More

My wife booked what was supposed to be a romantic stay on valentines night, as we got married at the Jacobean Lodge years ago, prior to the present owners taking over. Initially our booking was accepted and then we were told by the owners that our booking was now cancelled as they had double booked us and there were no... More

Stayed here for one night to be near the village of Haxby - all other hotels were full. Booked bed and breakfast. Got up in the morning to find all the communal passageways in total darkness - had to use my mobile phone light to find my way to the outside door - which was locked. When I finally managed... More

Of the 4 'Voucher' restaurants we have visited, this was the only one that did not include coffees and soft drinks within the voucher value (other restaurants included... More
