we only called in for a beer and ended up staying a few hours drinking lovely Theakstons best bitter on a balmy sunny night this weekend just gone, it looked like they cater for meals mainly early on though so lucky it was a warm sunny night and we stayed outside on the benches. The landlord was very friendly and... More

Words can not describe what a wonderful lunch we had. Some of us had prawn and crab salad and the rest had the sea food platter, absolutely first class. The ice cream sundaes were superb. Great service and a lovely relaxing atmosphere, nothing was too much trouble.

Food - all 3 courses, starter, main & dessert were perfect. It was more expensive than we would normally pay for a Sunday lunch but was worth it. We were staying at camp katur on the Sunday evening so it was a lovely start to the day. Only 'negative' comment was that it was really cramped on the day we... More

The excellent food was piping hot,served on hot plates, there was a selection of 3 vegetables, roast and... More

Don't be put off by the unprepossessing building, the food is really good. We enjoyed the avocado and crab salad and wild sea trout, but were hard pressed to choose from a really tasty menu of dishes to satisfy most tastes. Good service. Limited but reasonably priced wine list.

First of all don't follow the link on trip advisor it takes you to a housing estate in Bedale! Lovely traditional country pub 4 miles south of Bedale in the village of Carthorpe. Good varied selection of traditional dishes on the menu and specials board. Food is good and well presented. Staff are friendly and polite. Decent selection of beers... More

The local villages of Bedale provide a swathe of pubs offering good food. This means a pub needs to be pretty good to draw people to it. There is absolutely nothing to do in Carthorpe so the fact the place is always jammed is testament enough to the quality of service and food here. We had a most cheery time... More

If you're looking for a varied menu with great choice and a good selection of fresh fish/seafood you won't go wrong at the fox and hounds. All dishes were well presented and delicious.

We were 4 girls looking for some good food outside of our glamping weekend round the corner (Camp Katur). So glad we found this online before we went or else we would have never gone. Outstanding service from start to finish and made to feel very welcome as soon as we got there, the menu was fabulous and even a... More

Fantastic place. Was recommended by a local lady as a great place to eat and I am so glad she did. The food was delicious. Had the steak and kidney pie followed by the platter of desserts. The chefs/chef working there do a brilliant job not to mention the staff. Fantastic service. Very homely welcoming place. Would definitely return one... More
