A real old English pub

We were impressed by the standard of service, the quality of the food, and the warm atmosphere of our surroundings.

We had been looking for somewhere special to have lunch on our wedding anniversary and found this restaurant on a map, what a find! When you walk through the door, you enter a beamed, olde world pub, full of character, but you are then taken through to the large dining room with panoramic views. The menu has a two course...

We had a most enjoyable lunch here today. We decided to have the set menu, £10 for two courses or £14 for three courses. We both had the mushrooms with blue cheese for starters - they were delicious and just the right quantity. My friend had the cheese, leak and potato pie and he said it was really good. I... More

We had not visited this pub for a few years, and wondered if it would be as good as we remembered. We need not have worried! Although the exterior is nothing special, once inside the bar is cosy and there is a separate dining room which is light and airy. The standard of food is excellent and beautifully presented.

This is a great 'Dales' pub with a warm welcome. There are at least three Real Ales on tap and are cellared well. The food here is excellent and at a very reasonable price and is locally sourced. The restaurant is nicely presented with great views across open countryside.

Lucky enough to have stumbled upon this place following a cancellation. We had a lovely room attached to the pub, tastefully decorated and it also had nice big bath. Our two border terriers were allowed to stay with us in the room and we only had to put them in the car when we ate in the resturant. The evening... More

Revisited for lunch in December 2014. Good homemade fare, friendly people and great value for money. If you are in the area make a detour, go find it and enjoy 2 courses for £10 or 3 courses for £14. You'll be delighted that you did! In the summer there is a wonderful view from the dining room. You can even... More

I have been to Sunday lunch here in the past and it has always been okay. However, I went last night on the spur of the moment, and found that, to my surprise, there was an early bird meal! The choices of either two or three courses meant you didn't have to have what you didn't want. Being a greedy... More

We have visited the Queen's Head at Fingall many times for Lunches and Evening Meals and have always found it to be good. The management were most accommodating the last time as we requested a particular seating arrangement and this was carried out exactly as requested. The food is very good and the view from the restaurant across the Dale... More
