I stayed at the Craven Heifer for a weekend as I was climbing the three peaks (about a half an hour drive from the hotel). I was really happy with my room (14), although a single occupant I was given a family room so I had lots of space. The bathroom was a good size, clean and with a lovely... More

Our family enjoyed a tasty dinner here on Monday night; fish & chips, jacket potato and Chili con carne. The interior was ok but the atmosphere was sadly very lacking with the staff efficient but not overly welcoming when we initially entered the pub. We had hoped to eat here twice as it's so local to where we are staying... More

In the middle of June we did the Yorkshire 3 peaks and stayed a couple of nights in this quaint pub. The Accommodation: Recently refurbished, lots of room, comfy beds, quite location - all in all very good! The Food: We was certainly setup for the day, hiking the 3 peaks, after their full English breakfast, everything you can imagine... More

We arrived a party of 17 for Sunday tea. The lady came out explained that the chef had walked out and could we bare with her. We ordered the large order and waited. It was a while coming due to the afore mentioned missing chef but when the food came out it was lovely and hot and tasty. Well done... More

Do not pass this little village without popping into this pup. A great menu at only £8/£9 a plate and the specials are amazing more like a two rosette establishment than a pup and at around £10/£12 a plate it's real value for money . The best cask thwaites you will ever taste. Kid and dog friendly roaring fires in... More

Stayed here April 14 with my son, nephew and another friend. Alan and Maureen are really friendly and determined to make a success of this refurbished pub in the dales. The rooms are beautiful and comfy, just what we needed after doing the 3 peaks in atrocious conditions. The beer was in excellent condition. 4 real ales, all on top... More

After a 25 mile gruelling slog over the three peaks this was the perfect end to a tough day. Recently refurbished, the food was great, the room spotless and my bed was the most comfy bed ever. Great selection of real ales on offer from more than friendly landlord. Without doubt I'll stay again and will recommend to anyone. Five... More

This is now a lovely pub with new landlords, nice atmosphere and excellent food. Please ignore the old reviews. We moved to the village recently and are in the happy position of having The Craven Heifer as our local. We couldn't ask for better and always take family and friends who visit for lunch. We haven't been disappointed yet.
