“Best Roast Beef I've Had Yet.”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Made a reservation late last night, for 3pm today. The man I spoke to on the phone was polite and friendly, and the staff who served us once we arrived were also fantastic - helpful and chatty, made us feel welcome from the start.

The quality and quantity of food was excellent - we opted for the two course Sunday lunch, and neither of us could quite finish. There's a varied and inspired selection of starters, and a great selection of mains to pick from. The roast beef was done beautifully, tender and pink (although on the menu, they do mention that you can have it cooked a little longer if you happen to like it more well done).

Overall, brilliant experience. We were offered all the extras like dessert and coffee, but never pressured. Basically, just really well looked after. I'll absolutely be visiting again.

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

We booked a table for 8 adults for a Saturday evening and expected good traditional pub food. After having a pre dinner drink in the bar and ordering our choices we went through to our table. We had ordered different dishes and were all pleasantly surprised by the beautiful presentation, quality and delicious food we were presented and at excellent value. The waitress was very helpful and friendly. You would not expect this quality at a local pub and would definitely recommend this little gem to anyone who appreciates good a quality restaurant. Well done to the chef.

Reviewed June 3, 2013

Recommended by my daughter following a visit to an Antiques fare at Weatherby Race Course
and turning up without a booking,we were lucky to find a spare table available.We opted for the two course menu at £14.95 and were not disappointed.Two of the party had pork,one beef and I had the fish pie and we were not disappointed.The food was delicious and was followed by an equally apetizing sweet.Highly recommended!!

“Super early bird value”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Three of us went out for a quick early supper and had the 2 courses for £10 offer. Portions are smaller but never the less more than adequate for all of us. I had the fish and chips and it was excellant. Good cask ales and reasonable wine. Service was excellant as always.

“Great value Sunday lunch”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

After looking for somewhere for Sunday lunch in Wetherby I took advice from recommendations on Trip Advisor and booked for 4 for lunch. We decided to opt or the 2 courses so missed out on what looked like great food on the next table, so next time we may skip breakfast and go the whole hog! There was an extensive menu of different roast meats on offer, and went for pork which came with crackling and apple compote, and a Yorkshire pud, and a great rare roast beef. Plenty of roast potatoes and vegetables and good gravy. Both choices of meal spot on, with thick slices we tucked in and left clean plates. A good range of deserts and Yorkshire cheeses , including drinks, it came to £75, but the standard of food was far above your average Sunday pub lunch, and the lady who served us had a chat and a laugh and really mad it a great afternoon. We were made o feel very welcome and will certainly be going back as the other specials on the board also looked great. This restaurant prides itself on locally sourced ingredients, and with food like this , I might just be visiting a little more often.
