This was our meal of the day on our way to Pickering Nth. Yorks. with our Granddaughter. When we walked in at 4.30pm, prebooked - the carvery was available until 6pm - the place was deserted. Not a good sign I thought. Clearly all food had been out for some time and the vegetables had suffered greatly from being kept... More

Family visit, after flamingo land. Wednesday night visit had the two steaks for £15 which was beautiful. Well cooked, comes with your choice of potatoes, chips, salad or peas. Get the chips, real potatoes with skins on. Kids got the barbecue ribs, again brilliant. Kids loved it. Highly recommended. If we were local we would visit regularly.

My husband I called to sample the food here prior to a large family gathering in the village in May. The staff were very peasant and welcoming. My husbands starter of garlic mushrooms were in a watery sauce and rather tasteless. The Sunday carvery was terrible. A choice of 4 meats and between us we had 3 of them but... More

Despite one or two iffy comments left on Trip Advisor my wife and I decided to try the Drovers as we thought a nice drive in the Yorkshire countryside and meal at the end of it would be just the ticket. We had the Taster Menu a gift from my daughter and her husband and I have to say as... More

Booked table for 7.30pm and arrived alongside 5 other diners ( there were no other diners all evening). Didn't get our starters until 8.15. They were OK but the main courses were fairly uninspiring. Poor atmosphere. We won't be going back.

We met with friends here on Wednesday, early evening, and we decided to try Chef's recommendation of 'Stone Bass'... and we were not disappointed! Beautifully presented with a delicious mix of olives, garlic, cherry tomatoes and cherry chillies - the taste of the fish still won through. It's definitely a fish we will seek out in future. Our choice of... More
