We've stayed at Gallon House several times now, for romantic escapes from everyday life, for weekends with family, staff incentives and to impress important business associates. No matter who we go with, the effect is always the same, as soon as we enter the hallway which is always filled with soothing music, we give a huge sigh, as we know that we're in for a real treat. Once Rick or Sue has given us their warm welcome they pour us a nice glass of our favourite tipple, presented in lovely crystal glasses along with tasty nibbles. We're fully switched off by now and looking forward to Rick's amazing home cooking. I always long for him to surprise us however, as he does the best fillet steak ever, my husband normally gets his own way! The food really is amazing, and the intimate dining room overlooking the River Nidd is lovely. After a relaxing meal, served at your own pace, it's to the living room with a comforting open fire for a night cap (or in our case night caps!), Rick and Sue are happy to leave you to enjoy your evening for as long as you wish.
Breakfast is just as much a treat as dinner, Rick's homemade Black Pudding is something else! Again, served at your own pace with a menu to suit all.
Rick and Sue really make you feel at home, I could go on and on about all the little things that make Gallon House such an individual B & B experience, however the easiest way to say it is that we think it truly is the best B & B EVER!
