“Expected more.”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

The food was okay but noting special considering the high price, the dining area is quite dark and dingy and the service was a bit too pushy and the waitress was very quick to remove our plates.. Before we'd finished our starters. Okay if you want pub quality food for expensive restaurant prices.

“Food lovely.. service was a let down.”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

We have been to this restaurant on numerous occasions and have always been impressed with the food and service. It is a little pricey but we have always been impressed with the quality and presentation for a special night out. However visiting recently it was a busy Monday night, it seemed very under staffed.. on 2 occasions I had to chase staff for another drink and also had to chase for the bill as one member of staff forgot to bring it over. When spending over £80 on a meal for 2 adults and small child I dont expect to have to chase staff round the restaurant.

“Lunch after ride over the N. York moors”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

Recommended by a neighbour and well worth a visit. We arrived at 12 on a Wed and had a choice of seats overlooking the gardens and moors, fabulous. Will be lovely in the summer. Drinks arrived within a few minutes of ordering and food freshly cooked 15-20mins later. The salmon and steak pie were excellent followed by the orange and lemon cheesecake, yummy. We couldn't fault the staff, service or food. It wasn't cheap, but not overtly expensive either, so very good. The only wait we had was to pay, because a bus load of pensioners decided to pay individually. However, it was a good excuse to have a look around. All the rooms are well decorated with log burners,open beams, flagstones and wood workings. Good place for weddings/conferences and fab place for a weekend away, with a lift for disabled visitors

“Crap service and crap food”
Reviewed March 3, 2014 via mobile

Nice place chicken starter was nice and then it went wrong. Understaffed we sat for 2 hours and nobody asked use if we wanted another drink. We waited 48 mins for the main salmon and i would not have even gave it to the cat it was about 15 pound each it looked lovely the way it was served but it was like a old shoe sole. The waitress didn't even ask if every think was ok because both plates was untouched. We had to go to the railway chip shop to get some tea. Stop well clear how ever I have since start using the other side of town were I found a lovely small hotel (york house)they do a fresh boneless salmon in a lemon sauce it just melts in your mouth . So I advice stop away from the big hotels and try the small ones.

“Excellent Sunday Lunch”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

Just read the last review and had to comment as I was in the pub at the same time. The previous reviewer is right in that it isn't a carvery but the meal is excellent all the same. I know of other places where you can't get the punters in the door unless it is a carvery and that's a shame because a well presented meal with excellent choice of vegetables is a treat.

The staff are very helpful and the meal is very good but not cheap. I'm happy to pay for quality which is what we received. I would recommend it
