Today's group lunch was excellent and the new owners have made a distinct and positive impression. The hostelry was clean and well refurbished (the loos were a delight), the...

At short notice we booked a table for 7 adults and 3 little dogs - the staff were amazing, they cleared space, put up a table specially and couldn't have been more helpful. Yummy Sunday roast with great veggies - delicious puds. Thanks so much - you made our day.

A group of us stopped here for breakfast on route to a big local rugby match in Harrogate. Very warm welcome, beautiful old building, very tastefully decorated and delicious food. Highly recommend anybody passing to pull into the spacious car park and enjoy.

A good mix of traditional rural with modern popular food choices. Friendly staff and a good menu choice. Was a busy night and they had a good few large tables, and a coach party who turned up... which did impact the speed of food. We weren't in a rush and when the food arrived it was great. There is accommodation...
