We have just spent two days at The Crown for my husband's birthday - from my first telephone call to check availability to the moment we left, we were absolutely delighted with everything.
Nothing was too much trouble, there was absolutely no pressure and we were made to feel at home from the minute we arrived for the whole time we were there.
Thursday evening in the pub was very lively, with staff and locals alike so very friendly, and a superb pub quiz, too.
Our £60 double en suite room was warm and welcoming, clean and modern, and had everything we needed - plus a few unexpected extras.
We had a very good night's sleep - such a quiet location - and the food was out of this world.
We had lunch on the first day (my husband couldn't get over the salad dressing!!), and needed the afternoon walk into Masham to be ready for our evening meal, which was an eye-opener!
I can wholeheartedly recommend the garlic mushroom starter (with the secret recipe sauce) and my chicken breast with stilton sauce was absolutely phenomenal - the portions were huge (my husband had gammon - over half an inch thick!!), and amazing value for money.
Can't say what the desserts were like - we didn't have room left to tackle them!! but the breakfast alone was worth the journey to The Crown - we got the full works, everything beautifully cooked and served at a time to suit us - we needed a slow steady walk around Harkfall woods before we set off for the drive home!
All the food was fresh, obviously sourced locally, and cooked to perfection.
I cannot believe that we were lucky enough to find the jewel of Grewelthorpe - we are already planning our next visit.
Pam went the extra mile, effortlessly making sure we had everything - and more - that we needed, providing local information to help us get the most from our all-too-short stay - she was more like a friend than a "landlady".
She certainly is one impressive lady, and there aren't many like her about, so we really do want to say thank you for making our stay so enjoyable and relaxing - she deserves this review.
there are three rooms available - before we left, we were shown around the £80 per night family room...
