We had dinner here tonight and I'm so pleased we did, I ordered the roast beef and every mouthful was delicious, plenty of seasonal vegetables to go round and two homemade Yorkshire puddings. We all had desserts that were just as nice and every one in our party of five agreed that if we lived closer or were visiting the... More

Had lunch here today. I last visited this pub some 20 plus years ago and I am pleased to see it still retains all its charm ad served good quality home cooked food. I have to say the food was very good. Typical country pub food which came out piping hot and in good size portions. None of us could... More

As a result, 4 of us enjoyed an excellent Sunday lunch today - no fancy dishes just sticking to traditional roast beef and yorkshire... More

Lovely quaint pub in quiet location just outside Boroughbridge. Well worth stopping. Staff very friendly and efficient. Food was excellent couldn't fault it. Read their mission statement on front of menu! They certainly put it into practice!

It also offers,a brilliant menu, ranging from healthy vegetable modern cooking option, to excellent venison dishes to good comfort food. I was surprised and delighted at the quality and the generous, but not overwhelming portions, just the right size... More

It's easily navigable from the A1 Boroughbridge interchange.With stout oak beams (be sure to duck by the fire place) and an interior clad with a myriad of marine artefacts you can easily imagine you're inside an old wooden hulled ship.Hosts Brian and...
