Been here three times when walking in the area and it's difficult to find fault: the home-brewed ale is always good and the freshly prepared food is also first-rate and not overpricey.
On our previous visit the restaurant coped admirably with our party of eight walkers and this week they managed to feed and water sixteen of us even though we were over half an hour late in arriving after our walk.
We did have a bit of a wait for our meal but what else would you expect when 16 arrive and order food? It was worth waiting for and the service from the ladies is always efficient - nothing is too much trouble.
If you're an outdoor type, park the car at High House, do the walking - there's a 3-mile and a 5-mile circuit which are both comfortable walks and there's scope for longer circuits - then return to a beer and a meal. Can't be beaten. The roads around Matfen are relatively quiet and flat so there are possibilities for cyclists too!
Our rambling club has made three visits now and I'm definitely planning another which incorporates High House.
