Reviewed August 7, 2013

Was surprised to see that someone paid over £100 for a room (Earlier Post). Maybe this included dinner as our rate for a twin room booked direct was a lot less than that. The food we had for dinner was excellent both in quality and quantity. All 4 meals rated that way. The homemade chips were very good. The room I shared was adequate for the night. it was clean, the bed was ok and the shower, although the cubicle was a bit on the small side, was powerful enough with plenty of hot water. Typical of many places used on the Coast to Coast walk the room was a bit on the small side. But ok for a night. Breakfast was average. Staff and the owner were very friendly and the beer good.

This place wasn't very friendly or welcoming unfortunately, but it wasn't a terrible stay. The bar is a nice place to sit by the fire and read a book. The food was average. The rooms were old and worn - didn't look very clean. Breakfast was also average. Feels very much like you're staying in a pub without much atmosphere.

We stayed here during our coast to cost walk. It was lovely place to stay after a long day of walking...comfortable, friendly, good food and in a lovely setting. It's a good place to stay if exploring the local beautiful countryside. We will be back.

We stopped here on our coast to coast cycle and what a gem!! It's the only pub in Glaisdale so we had no choice but we were all really surprised by the quality of the food. The beef stroganoff was probably the best we've ever tasted and the homemade chips were lovely. Plenty of food for 4 very hungry cyclists. Pub was busy so we waited a while for the food but when it came it was well worth waiting for. Can't recommend enough for good pub food.

We booked the hotel through late rooms the week before the Easter bank holiday.
It looked like just the job for a spur of the moment break.
The hotel is quite a bit off the beaten track, but we like that. We arrived at the pub/hotel around 3pm; the pub has a car park at the rear.
We went into the bar area and were greeted by a young lady with a smile and a very chirpy manor (Maria), we ordered our drinks, mine was a Black Sheep bitter, very nice indeed. We then said we had a room booked, and that we would take our bags up later.
We then ordered a sandwich and some chips, very nice indeed.
I have to say the pub is a bit run down and in need of some TLC.
We were shown to our room (5) which was at the front of the hotel. To our disappointment it had 3 single beds, but never mind.
The room looked ok, but on closer inspection not up to a £105 a night rate. Quite dusty with cobwebs and a dead fly on the light fitting. I always say been clean doesn’t cost anything, so you expect to be dust free room with no cobwebs. The bathroom was ok, with a shower (electric).
The beds were quite comfy (it’s been awhile since I’ve slept in a single bed).
The breakfast was served in the pub area, the table we were on was broken so when I put my arm on it the thing tilted to such a degree that my cup started sliding. We were told by the waitress that it was broken but she had tried to fix it with 2 beer mats!! When my food arrived have to say it wasn’t very nice, I had the full English, my partner had scrambled egg on toast, she left hers, apparently it was oily?
Mine was awful, bacon like leather, sausages hard (probably been microwaved), the egg and plate were running with oil. The only good thing about it was the toast, even that wasn’t browned off, just white. Service was good, lots of smiles etc.
Now call me old fashioned but the smell of damp dog is not nice in a breakfast room, the couple next to us had decided to bring theirs to breakfast. I must admit it’s a first for me in a hotel.
I didn’t want to make an issue about it, I did think the staff would’ve done something but they just made a fuss of the dog!!!
Maybe the couple were friends of the owners, I did see that their breakfast was double the size of mine??
So to summarise, £105 was way too much to pay maybe £60 would be fair, Staff were lovely, breakfast a massive let down, room ok needed a good clean, location lovely, would we stay there again…No.

Stayed here in September. Weather was awful but the pub made up for it. Basic but comfortable at reasonable price. Food was good, home cooked and freshly made , which understandably took a while to arrive but was well worth the wait. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Would not hesitate to recommend it at all. Will be back again.

Room Tip: Room two was the one we slept in and as it was not over the bar was quite quiet. Had a lovely view o...
