First time stay at this Inn and after parking in the large car park it revealed a tastefully furnished property with log burner glowing in the comfortable lounge. Let me say from the off that all the staff we interacted with were at all times extremely polite, welcoming and helpful. Our room was a good size and full of creature...

We stayed for one night as we were at a friends party in knaresborough. Nice welcome. Lovely little bar. Breakfast was very pleasant. The rooms were clean and well equipped though the bathroom was dated and a bit tatty.

The room was nicely decorated, clean and spacious. We went down for drinks in the lounge area which was cosy sitting around the wood burning stove. Our evening...

My wife and I booked The General Tarlton as a treat for our granddaughter her husband and ourselves. The booking was based on good reports on trip advisor but sadly in our experience it did not meet our expectations.

Went for an early evening meal on recommendation. On first impression, the restaurant was light, airy and clean. To my mind it lacked atmosphere and ambience. Although very quiet, the staff seemed inattentive to customers entering the establishment and perhaps need more training in how to meet and greet customers. Our food was very well presented but to be truthful,...

Thank you for using Tripadvisor and for letting us know your feedback. Sunday night at 6pm is a quiet time for most businesses like ours, but that does not excuse you having anything less than a very warm welcome.

Lovely room, convenient location, delicious food. Minor gripes were the table at dinner (other diners had to get up for me to get in and out) and missing menu items at breakfast. Strongly recommend for a short couples getaway.
