Myself and my wife stayed for 2 nights so we could be close to friends staying on a local campsite. The B&B room was excellent; yes it was on the small side but the building is pretty old so you have to work with what you've got. The room was very clean and the view onto the local hillsides was...

There's not much you can say about a bed-and-breakfast--if the bed's comfortable and the breakfast is good then it's done its job. But pubs now try much harder than they used to to provide meals, and food here was really excellent, even by modern pub standards. And they had somewhere secure to put our bikes, and didn't mind that we... More

As we were having a " day off " we were offered a lift into Settle by the ever helpful landlady. Breakfast was fine and we were made to feel... More

We called in today and the kitchen had closed shortly before, however it was no problem for the owners and they managed to feed our small group of 5 with no problem. Everybody enjoyed the food very much. Such lovely folk too. Can't understand what the other reviews are about and we have marked this one for retuning to.

I stayed hear for a wedding up the road and was really pleased. The double room was clean, tidy and had more space then I expected. Importantly for me it also had a very very comfy bed and nice powerful shower. I had breakfast both mornings and it was good size and great tasting so thanks to the chef. As... More

I've never been to Stainforth before, but I'll certainly come again to stay at this pub. Beer is excellent, the food is too. The room was very comfortable. The new owners have obviously tried hard and succeeded to make it a good place to stay. The location is great too, next too a stream. If we hadn't been on a... More

My friends and I called into this pub whilst on our camping trip. I have never been made to feel so unwelcome, staff made all of our group feel like we were intruding, we had planned on staying to eat but after the frosty reception we recieved decided to take our custom else where. Won't be going back

My parents have recently moved up to Stainforth from Huddersfield and this is their new local. Me and my partner have been a couple of times and are never let down for quality of food and service. I ordered the steak & Stilton pie with chips and veg, it was stunning. The hint of cheese with the pie softens the... More

What a great pub to start and finish the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge. Stayed for two nights. The food, drink and room were great and the hosts Andrew and Maureen were lovely and friendly. If you are in the area it's well worth calling in and trying the menu. I'm sure it won't be our last visit
