The Sunday lunch time carvery had been recommended but, we were unable to make it and ate at night there. We all had various Sunday 'lunch' meals from the specials board of which there were a very good selection. Portions huge!... More

We enjoyed an excellent meal last night with friends. Actually, we had a cracking evening. First of all The Feathers is delightful. I guess it gets a head start being located in Helmsley; one of my favourite places. But, to be fair, The Feathers excelled itself with a warm welcome when we arrived and my favourite Black Sheep on tap... More

Feathers Hotel is still a hotel (I believe, a pub and a very decent restaurant). There's a traditional pub layout, then a more conventional pub restaurant area at the back. Food wise, there's a fair variety, with food available from midday on most days. We visited on a Monday, taking two options from the Specials Menu. Food took around 25mins... More

A coach full of walkers arrived, looking forward to our annual Christmas dinner as a group. The bars were full and most of the tables were taken, a good sign. We all sat down and the meal was good for the amount of people that the restaurant was catering for. The ambience was ruined when the tables near us left... More

Ate here again on a Monday night, the place was still full. Great atmosphere, great beer, great food. Would have also stayed here but the hotel was full when I tried to book. Stopped in the 'posh' places in Helmsley before but this place beats them hands down.
