Don't want to say anything negative about this one. It was good. Room comfortable. Food good. People friendly. Small issue was that I was on a walking holiday on my own - and for some reason my room had a sofa bed made up as an additional bed - which of course would be good for a family - but... More

We stayed here for one night whilst attending a wedding. We had a delightful room with all mod cons and the staff were very helpful. We did ask for a light bite snack but I think the Yorkshire definition of a light bite is a full meal!!! The food was very goos if more than e bargained for.

Stayed one night mid-week in a standard room. A well appointed room with good en-suite shower, at the front of the hotel overlooking the main road, but minimal noise from traffic. Good cooked breakfast to set us up for the day. Evening meal menu was not huge but the quality was good, we had the three peaks burger. There is... More

This is a great pub providing good food at fair prices. The staff were welcoming and friendly and the ambience was very nice. I'd recommend trying their signature main course - The Settle Pudding - which is a meat and ale pie in suet....no need for the chips or mash...this will beat you on its own. Excellent

Central location with spacious bar and dining areas and incredibly high ceilings. Al fresco dining available in the courtyard and covered stables. Nice selection of drinks and friendly attractive staff. Menu selection is solid, fairly priced, and delivers reasonably good dishes.

Eight of us had an excellent meal here last night - several big imaginative starters (spring rolls, rarebit on muffins, and more), and some enormous mains (notably the butcher's board platters, and the half chicken, but also the sweet potato and halloumi burgers). Several good local ales on tap, decent wines, friendly service, and a huge high-ceilinged attractive and spacious... More
