We opted for the 8-course tasting menu with full wine pairing. Go hungry! The portions are very generous indeed. Each course was delicious, beautiful flavours, textures and presentation. We went on a Saturday evening, the ambience was great and the tables are generously spaced so you are not on top on other diners. A thoroughly enjoyable evening, Frances even signed... More

Absolulty faultless. Catered for dietary requirements without a second blink. Fantastic food, service, presentation and cleanliness. 10/10. My only slight comment and this did not effect anything about the stay was I felt the bedroom lacked the wow factor, it was nice,plain and very clean, but forgettable! The whole think was exceptional and would recommend to everyone.

I don't normally submit reviews in Tripadvisor, but I was looking for a revew to help me with my situation below, and I could not find one. So I hope that someone does find this useful. I arranged for a surprise birthday dinner for my wife, and we made the reservation for the evening for a party of seven, including... More

Second visit to the Yorke Arms for lunch and the food was superb. We enjoyed a drink in front of the log fire to warm up on a bitterly cold day. Started with tuna and langoustine and my wife had artichoke served in different styles. Mains were bass and I had pork . The wine was a fabulous Riesling from... More

We visited yesterday for my son's 30th birthday and as was a special occasion had the 5 course surprise tasting lunch menu. We were really impressed by the service, ambience, and of course the food which was astonishingly good. Every course was faultlessly plated -we really savoured every mouthful and enjoyed the special surrounding countryside. Thanks to the staff who... More

My oh my, The Yorke Arms does divide opinion. Reading through some of the recent reviews does make interesting reading. While I agree with some comments and others have a certain amount of validity some of the other statements are plainly wrong. I guess that's subjectivity for you and I'm not about to denigrate anyone else's opinion. But based on... More

A group of seven of us went to the Yorke Arms for the experience - and it was a very rewarding and flavoursome evening. Eight courses and a well matched flight of wine came to about £150 per head. Beautiful food, well put together and some great creations. I doubt I could afford such extravagance on a regular basis, but... More

another sublime lunch at the yorke arms,value for money at any price for stunning food and wonderful service. i never thought id say an artichoke course would be my favourite,it was inventive and glorious in its complexity. john was as ever a true professional and so welcoming. nowhere beats the yorke arms for a truly splendid dining experience.

We were very well looked after by the staff in the small room next to the entrance, it was very cosy. The canapés were really nice and so was the white wine we tried. We were stuffed by the time we reached the cheese board and had a great feed and a really nice time, cant wait to try the... More

I has a three course a la carte meal. Starter was reasonable but nothing special, same with the main which was also quiet small portion of fish. I have had taster menus at other Michelin restaurants which had larger portions. The dessert was my favourite course which is disappointing. As for the wine at £34 a bottle I don't expect... More
