We needed to eat after a longish drive. Travelling on the top road between Hardrow and Askrigg we happened to see the Stone House and noticed it was serving lunches. We'd been before and it was good but not great. But needs must when one is hungry.
Wow. The menu was perfect for lunch, the lounge was really comfortable. Our Westie was made to feel welcome. Excellent food and excellent service allowed us to sit for a while in these quiet and peaceful surroundings before we carried on our journey.
We will return very soon as the Stone House Hotel has just become our number one place for eating in Wensleydale.
