We stayed on a warm night. The room had plenty of windows to open so that was fine. Spacious, clean room with lot's of choice of tea and a basket of fruit. Views across the Dales were great.
We had a drink outside in their courtyard that is sheltered by a bank that looks as if it was an old building with blocked up windows - it turns out that the bank used to come right to the back of the pub and the "building" is an imaginative and attractive retaining wall!
The extensive menu covers well cooked pub food at reasonable prices. Service is friendly and attentive. Real ale (though I found one not to my taste) and wines at sensible prices. Breakfast is everything you would hope for with rapid service.
The large fish pond in the courtyard has two sturgeons, which look like spiky pike. Too small as yet to provide much in the way of caviar, but who knows in a year or two?
