“Let down by the decoration and the poor staff levels”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

Good home made food, let down by big queues at the bar and a rather run-down bar area.

The whole bar is in need of a clean and lick of paint - it could be transformed pretty cheaply, but there seems to be a lack of desire to please in the owners. They we understaffed on the evening we visited, with big queues to order food and beer. I saw two groups leave in frustration.

The beer is good and well kept. The food arrived in good time and was tasty - more gastro pub offerings are available at the other pub in the village, but this seemed to be better value.

There seems to be an unused dining room that could and should be used on buys evenings - we visited during school half term times and the place was creaking with the number of visitors.

Dogs welcome in the bar.

“Lazy Attitude”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Food was nice but the service here was poor. A desert took 50 minutes to come out after the main course, then when I came to pay I waited around 20 minutes for the credit card machine to work which never did. I enjoyed the food but communication was poor and the time took waiting put me off the restaurant.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Stopped here for a bite to eat and a drink with some friends after a long morning walking. We were originally going to stop in the Craven Arms but the new in gave us a great selection of World Beers, my favourite Whiskey and we all had some really good food! A little more than I would have wanted to pay, but it was a cosy and welcoming atmosphere - I'd definitely recommend popping in here.

“Walker's pub, not a gourmet restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

Been a few years since we went to the New Inn last. Had Vegetarian Lasagne was was OK. Obviously home-made rather than frozen. Chips were quite pleasant.

Pub was much quieter than used to be a few years ago, but then the food is nowhere as nice as it used to be. Dog- and Walker-friendly.

Will I go back? Next time I'm in Appletreewick I'll go to the Craven Arms.....and then decide.

“Very Nice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

We ate at this "eating hole" over the bank holiday weekend. The atmosphere was lovely, the food was delicious and the "sticky toffee pudding and custard" was to die for. They allow dogs in, which was great as we were camping locally and had taken our pooch with us. There were other dogs in there, but all were very well behaved. If you are a real ale fan then this is a must, a massive array of ales & beers.
