Been visiting The Barn at Scorton (home of The Bowland Grill) for many years and, whilst noticing a decline, kept loyal to the place. Not any more. Their vegetable broth was legendary but even that isn't good any more, under seasoned and bland. The final straw for us though was the Hotpot, oh dear, truly dreadful. Looks great on first sight but what you get is a bowl full of huge chunks of undercooked potatoes and 2 tiny gristly bits of "chewy" meat. This is all topped with pastry that you could sole a shoe with and then walk from Landsend to John O'Groats without putting a dent in it! Maybe that's what all the walkers call there for! All joking aside it's awful. We did comment about it to the member of staff who cleared our table (as we'd left most of it she couldn't fail to notice there must be something wrong) but she just said "oh, sorry" and sailed off, couldn't have cared less.
The other thing about the place is that it's gone really scruffy, tatty and not too clean in places. We sat at one table where you could see part of the kitchen floor and it left a great deal to be desired.
Won't be going back.
