I loved the location but the food is why I would return! Our meals were superb, quality, melt in the mouth pieces of meat. The staff are really very friendly and they all seem happy to help. I woud definitely recommend the pie and the burgers.

Best place to eat in Masham, shame they only serve food on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. The food was excellent and the service was prompt and attentive (take note White Bear). You'll need to book but they seemed to have just one serving so they don't rush you through which is pleasant. Best of all, a great variety of Black... More

I got tickets for the Black Sheep brewery tour as a wedding present from my wife. As a lover of ale I couldn't wait. I wasn't disappointed, both the tour and the food were excellent. The tour itself is about an hour long, and takes you through the history of brewing in Masham, then on a tour of the brewery... More

Really enjoyed our trip to black sheep. Brewery tour was about an hour and included 3x 1/3 of a pint or a soft drink. Food was excellent I had Caesar salad which was a huge portion. Highly recommended.

Always liked it in here and this didn't disappoint, if perhaps far from spectacular. Good atmosphere, great beer and reasonable food although certainly overpriced for what feels like a cafe. Pretty good all round though.

We have visited the Black Sheep on a number of occasions before and always been satisfied but this time it was going to be more of a challenge as our party consisted of a right mixture of tastes and picky eaters. Every one of us found something on the menu we fancied and all 7 meals were excellent. My teenage... More

The food was really really good and the service was excellent. One of the best Sunday Roast Dinners we've had. Masham is a little out the way for us but it was worth the visit. If we visit North Yorkshire next year then we'll be back for sure

Well what can I say, countryside, beer, and glorious food....surely the recipe for a perfect getaway with the family. Highly recommend , the smell of malt and hops hit you as you make your way up to the trendy bar area and well equipped reasonably priced goodies in the black sheep shop, the tour is concise, interesting and well delivered...
