“A Real Local”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

Situated in the main street of the historic & attractive village of Grosmont, close to castle & church. Friendly welcome from staff & locals. Good range of real ales including Butty Bach. A very reasonably priced menu & good sized portions. We all had sirloin steaks which cost approx £12 each. On the critical side they were tasty but a little chewy. Recomend eating in the bar which has more atmosphere than the rather spartan restaurant area.

“Angelic....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

Superb little village pub sort of lost in time. Well worth a visit, there is a good selection of ales (Wye Valley Butty bach was exceptionally good) and very palletable food (two menus - restaurant and pub menu) with all dishes of locally sourced ingredients. The staff are friendly and efficient. The bar is inhabited by a steady stream of friendly locals, more than happy to have a chat.

Not much else to say really - call if you're passing!

“Fab pub - great landlady !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

We were taking our 2 boys aged 3 and 5 for a tour of the Three Castles and stopped off here for lunch. We were made so welcome and the food was great - brilliant chips ! The landlady had time to stop and chat to us and showed us the new boules court out the back on the new sun terrace. The live music Thursday nights sound great.
This is a real proper pub - real log fire - locals - tourists - you won't regret it !
I wish the landlady every success - a great place !
She even gave the boys a little gift of an apple / orange on the way out - well done to her !!! Thanks !

“GREAT PLACE - LIKE PUBS USED TO BE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

DO go to this place if you can...preferably on a weekend evening when they have some live music or a Satuday afternoon when a steady stream of locals grace the bar...

This is how pubs used ot be, it doesn't pretend to be anything other than a drinking place, the food is OK but don't expect gastro...which is fine because it is not the reason to go there really - it's just a fabulous place that you should try! (although hubby did have a very good steak!).

The village is fabulous and walks are amazing - views to die for. They did us a good Sunday lunch too, and very reasonable.

The landlord is a really great bloke and very friendly indeed...we would recommend this place to anyone.

If you want to stay you can try the Gentle Jane in the village...as I don't think the pub does rooms - which is great and I am about to review that now also.
