Having spent a couple of nights there with family last October and enjoying the food, lunch this week was a disaster. The staff are most friendly and attentive, but totally let down by the chefs. We sat outside as it was sunny. The table looked as though it had never been cleaned. Caked on bird dirt, and what looked like... More

The staff were great, however the afternoon tea was dreadful. The drinks were fine, but the food was very poor. The sandwiches were quite bland, the scones were the worst I've ever had, not scone like at all. The tartlet seemed like a shop bought case with squirty type cream on top. The macarons were OK, but I imagine these... More

We went here for afternoon tea and spent some time exploring the grounds and sat outside to enjoy the relaxing and very peaceful surroundings. The tea was just right and served by friendly staff. Would recommend for a relaxing couple of hours.

We stayed for two nights and had the beautiful Kingfisher room which overlooks the garden, has a spacious balcony and a four poster. Although the room was luxurious, the outstanding thing for us was the exceptional standard of care and attention to detail shown to us during our stay by the experienced and highly professional staff team.

I have been to the Dales twice now and both times I ordered drinks to have outside. The alcohol is ordered at the bar and you take it with you to the garden area, which is lovely. However, coffee and tea orders are diverted to the kitchen, and dealt with there. Both times this has happened we have had to... More
