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...

We had a fantastic meal here, really tasty food and an extensive menu. Really enjoyed it, we had lunch here but will definitely be coming back for an evening meal next time we are at the van :-)

We had lunch in the friars head while we were staying on the holiday park. It was great for all the family and the lunch menu was very reasonable. The Staff were very attentive and polite.

my 18th birthday and i had no idea what to do except a meal so my mother suggested the friars head which i was more than happy as i had never been before and had heard it was very nice.

Though my lamb was fine, quite why anyone would serve the ubiquitous fried potato cubes, vegetables and salad with a pasta course is beyond us! And at just under £50 for two for a two course meal with one drink each,... More

We had dinner there twice in the week we spent in Bedale. The food was good, service excellent and the price not too heavy for what we got.

an 80th birthday celebration for a disparate group of 16 people hosted in a private area. The food was excellent and all meals came at the same time. Service was discreetly attentive - we felt welcomed and unhurried. Easy to find and easy to park.
