Dropped in for a meal without a reservation. Excellent service and my sweet potato salad was delicious, followed by an amazing sticky toffee pudding. My husband enjoyed his steak with pepper sauce. The restaurant appeared to busy for a Tuesday evening.

The old pub has been completely renovated and a quality extension added with a comfy lounge and bar, private upstairs dining room and 13 rooms on 2 levels. The rooms are very nicely appointed, each with an on suite bathroom complete with bath... More

A pre booked stay, largely on the basis of trip advisor comments, and indeed the food, service , and comfort of the rooms could not be faulted, what i did find very poor was to pay 150 pounds per night for a ground floor bedroom , overlooking a busy car park with no privacy at all. A real let down... More

We visited here for a close friends wedding reception and had not been before. We had read reviews and they were largely very positive.

Very Attentive staff. Made to feel very welcome on arrival. My room,number 5 was very comfortable and scrupulously clean. Evening meal was a real pleasure with so much choice on offer. The quality and taste excellent. Breakfast this morning beautifully presented and tasty. Will definitely use again. Great parking.

We booked the GTI for the location & after reading very positive reviews on TA. The rooms are nice enough but don't expect either state of the art or rustic charm- they are functional & the bathrooms just about modern enough to pass muster. The tea/ coffee offerings in the room are a nice touch. Breakfast was typical Yorkshire cooked... More

Stayed for just one night in room 15 which is on the first floor at the very end of the corridor so no disturbance for us (apart from the staff car park when they headed home but we had the window open).
