5 of us went here for a evening meal, had booked before hand which was a good job as it was very busy. Ordered the sirloin steak which came with mushrooms, chips, tomato, had the side order of sesame fried winter greens which was very nice. Whole meal was lovely, just one thing is that I think the portion size... More

Very last minute stop off to break a journey. Our room was small but with a large bathroom, and I would normally describe it as adequate... quiet, reasonably comfortable. The place distinguished itself with little touches... very friendly and helpful staff, fresh milk provided in thermos flask to go with quality in room tea coffee hot chocolate products, attention to...

I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Settle. The beer range is varied (Thwaites plus usually locally brewed guests), and well kept. The menu is varied and good quality, also reasonably priced. Very dog-friendly (they even provide towels for drying off wet ones). Roaring log fire for cold days (good luck getting the table right in front though!). Can't... More

I came here in June and gave this place top marks and was very keen to come back so I did. Brought my wife telling her how great it was when I came in June with friends and felt a little let down his time. It just simply wasn't as friendly this time and I certainly felt the food was... More

We stayed here for one night in a standard double room. Our room was very nice with homemade biscuits and hospitality tray. When a member of staff helped us to our room he explained that the noise we could hear was the fans from the kitchen but assured us they would stop by 10.30pm (which they did). The fans did... More

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.
