Stopped on a Thursday afternoon for a cream tea but told we could have jam & cream but no scones??!No alternatives recommended & not at all friendly so we left. Found a delightful place (with scones!) in Coxwold instead.

We must have missed all the amazing food others have mentioned. The walkers special was very average . Soup and sandwich seems like a very good deal when you consider the drink included in price. However the sandwich does not have the nice salad the other sandwiches come with. Ham was nice but there was little of it between basic... More

Stopped here for lunch after visiting the Ruins of the Abbey across the road. We decided to have the Yorkshire Platter. The food was delicious with more than enough for the 2 of us and the tea was superb. The staff were busy but still had time for everyone. An absolute delight

My husband and I arrived on a rainy day and were looking for somewhere to spend a few hours before checking in to our B & B in Ampleforth. Great menu for such a small place.

We loved our one night stay at the Abbey Inn...and our room with a view! After a warm welcome and enjoying tea/coffee and delicious cakes downstairs in the tearoom we spent some time exploring the abbey itself (free entry for residents). Well worth a visit and much more extensive than it first looks from the roadside too. We were staying... More

An idyllic spot for an overnight stay. The inn has only three rooms, all with tea making facilities and comfortable beds. Afternoon tea with homemade cakes and scones served in the garden overlooking Byland Abbey. Walk or drive a half mile to Wass for an excellent dinner at the Stapylton Arms (make a reservation- it's popular). Visit Kilburn and the... More

The food here is consistently good. The menu is varied and interesting and the services is consistent. Have not yet stayed in the rooms but am told they are equally good. The location is querky and atmospheric opposite the ruined abbey

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Abbey Inn is steeped in history - from evidence of a medieval hostelry beneath its foundations to the current building made from 'borrowed' stones from the ruins of Byland Abbey. Now imaginatively restored from its origins as an 19th century farmhouse, the Inn has been fully refurbished and furnished to create a wonderfully eclectic mix of old style architecture with modern amenities and facilities. We offer our guests a choice of three individually designed bedrooms - the Byland Suite, the Mouseman bedroom and the Kilburn bedroom. All with spacious en-suite bathrooms and lovely views. Our tearoom is dedicated to providing high quality food using fresh local ingredients. Yorkshire produces some of the finest food and drink in the country and we aim to offer you some of the best. Abbey Inn is nestled quietly at the foot of the Hambleton Hills, surrounded by the ruins of Byland Abbey and beautiful open countryside. ... more   less
