My wife and I have frequented the Friars head since we were newly married, we haven't been for a while after having a disappointing visit a few years back! I have to say we revisited last night and I am glad to say I was not disappointed the food was great and the service was too. I will definitely return.

This is a great place to have a leisurely meal. The conservatory is an excellent environment where grapes grow above your head. The choice of meals is good and the food is fine although not exceptional. Prices are reasonable and the staff are friendly and helpful. Worth a visit for the setting alone.

We have been spending our summer hols in the Dales for the last 4-5 years and we would drop in at Akebar once or twice a week to use the driving range. Never eaten there before but we decided to give it a try this time around as the menu on the blackboard looked so inviting !! Well, we weren't... More

We have used the Friars Head at lunchtime for years, it is probably the one restaurant that always fits the bill to perfection. The summerhouse ambience of the conservatory, mixed with the Britishness of being entertained by the games of croquet just outside the window together with excellent service and an ever changing menu, we just are never disappointed, so...

Beautiful food in a surprisingly good venue. Was not expecting it to be such a lovely place and with great service thrown in to make a lovely night.
