Looked for somewhere close to Harrogate and came across the Lamb and Flag which had good reviews so decided to give it go. They say that first impressions count and for us that was certaily the case. I had phoned to say we were going to be late and was told not to worry as they served food until 8.45pm. We arrived at 8.55pm and feared the worst only to be told to relax and check into the room first but to order the food so that it was ready when we came back to the bar.
The Fountain room was exactly as described by previous visitors (a converted barn) and the buffet style help yourself continental breakfast the following morning was an absolutely novel and extremely enjoyable way to start the day. The regulars in the bar on an evening made you feel very at home as did the open fire. Whilst the food was very good and cooked fresh it did not elevate itself above many other places I've been to before, but that said the locals must rate it very highly as it was packed out for the traditional Sunday lunch.
If like us you would rather put money into smaller business and get "looked after", rather than "attended to" as is normally the case in the larger hotel chains, then you wont be disappointed staying here.
