We stayed at Oswalds in February 2009 and would recommend it to anyone. The accommodation was good and very clean and the restaurant is probably the best in the area. Mark is a very good host and makes you feel very welcome and does as much as possible to make you feel comfortable during your stay. We stayed three nights and dined in the restaurant twice. Regrettably, however, we ventured out into Thirsk for a meal on the third night but were very disappointed as there is nothing to touch Oswalds for value and quality in the restaurant. I'd personally recommend the FIllet steak as mine was cooked perfectly. I asked for medium and, as expected it came pink in the middle and without watery blood oozing out, which is sometimes the case if the chef gets it wrong! It was tender, tasty and came with a melt in the mouth texture. Perfect! I couldn't complain about any of the food and I would definately eat here again. (try the sunblush tomato sausages!!) The service is attentive without being overbearing and you definatley get good value for money. Breakfast is very good too! As for the rooms, you'll not find a cleaner place to stay, the towels were changed every day with fresh toiletries, coffee, tea and drinking chocolate topped up each day too. The only thing they didn't replace were the biscuits but the food was so good anyway I probably wouldn't have been able to eat them!! I'm struggling to find anything wrong with our stay at Oswalds but if I'm pushed there was just one thing, the shower head kept falling down if the water pressure dropped - it wasn't a big problem because the pressure usually returned to g-force within a few seconds - I didn't complain about it because in the scheme of things it was insignificant however, if I had mentioned it I'm sure they would have sorted it out immediately. you get the feling they will do as much as they can to please you during your stay.
