Booked a table for 5 people on Friday evening, very good meal, the staff could not do enough for you. The food is very reasonably priced and good portions. Although we were on holiday we would definitely return if in the area.

Yes, been closed a while. Great shame. The owners have relocated to Yedingham and run a pub there... Also has good reviews, but not so local if you're in East Ayton!
