We've just returned from two days at The Bridge Inn at Grinton. The food was amongst the best we have ever eaten in a public house hotel. The quality was excellent, the portion just right and the range of meals on the menu would put most top quality restaurants to shame. The specials on the menu were outstanding. The service was very good, they made my partner and I and our dog very welcome and comfortable. The rooms are modest, they are not luxurious, but for those with dogs and / or enjoy walking you do not expect nor need opulence. The location is superb especially for those who enjoy walking. You can start your walks right outside the front door and Swaledale has beauty, is unspolit and not too busy. There are a vast array of footpaths from the easy to the more strenuous.
The only tinge of slight disappointment was the beers. It is a CAMRA public house and in many respects the reasons for this are clear. However, the range of beers available during our stay was good, but we did drink some better pints at the Black Bull Hotel in Reeth and the Farmers Arms in Muker, particularly Theakston's Old Peculiar.
We would thoroughly recommend The Bridge Inn especially if you are, like us, walkers, dog lovers, appreciate a friendly welcome and wallow in peace, quiet and natural beauty.
