“Excellent, warm and friendly”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

My husband and i came here for the day to visit the pub itself and Joanne. I have never stayed but i am hoping to stay in October time. Pub is clean and tidy and staff are warm and welcoming and locals are very friendly to. We bring out pet lab dog and he loves to come here. dogs are welcome and all staff and customers adore him and other pets. They all pat him and gave him attention. We sat outside as it was fab sunny day and was very entertaining as we saw wedding been held there. We have been many times before and we normally stay down the road at flowerydell but past couple of times have not been able to get booked there so we have came for the day. We only come to visit the pub and have a drive through the countryside then i love to go to the coop there in Richmond as they are the only one that does very good selection of Wensleydale cheese and i always spend a fortune on cheese there. The food at the pub is also good and good value for money. Keep up the good work Jo and Team and see you again soon. Calvin Dawn and Sam

Great atmosphere in the bar with chat from staff and regulars alike. (Dog friendly in the bar.) Unfortunately the chef was "off sick" on the night we stayed so we were unable to sample the food and the breakfast was quite basic. However, the room was large, clean and comfortable - a bit worn in places, but we weren't expecting The Ritz. Reasonably priced, excellent stopover if you are travelling in the area or are on your way further north. Would happily stay again!

Room Tip: Room 2 had nice views

A lovely place to stay, only a short very nice walk from richmond centre but far enough away to enjoy the peaceful countryside. The room was a good size, very clean with excellent views. Great staff, all very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was excellent. We would highly recommend this place to everyone.

We went here for an evening meal and were very pleased we had! Service was friendly and welcoming and the food great. The portions were generous with vegetables perfectly cooked. The chips were amazing! Chicken and chorizo pie and lamb's liver were both very tasty. We would definitely recommend this venue and we will be going back.

Last Sunday I stayed at the Holly Hill Inn with friends and family who were supporting a group of bikers riding Wainwright's Coast to Coast route. The rooms were clean, spacious and warm with good facilities. If the Inn was great the host Joanne was even better. She found camping for the bikers when we were unable. She allowed our lads to sing and play the guitar. She sent around trays of hot beef sandwiches and even gave us a donation for our cause. The next morning she arranged for her chef to make hot breakfast sandwiches for the team members before they set off on the next leg of their journey. Our breakfasts where exceptional. Many thanks Joanne and team!

Room Tip: All rooms were good - at the back of the Inn - The upstairs ones have wonderful views over Richmond

stayed here 5/5/13 with a group of friends doing the coast to coast bike ride,the landlady Jo had arranged with the farmer for the the riders to camp in the field behind the pub, but the support team hired 3 rooms,the rooms were fantastic with our room [2] overlooking the stunning richmond castle.although the pub was not doing food on sunday night, after feeding our faces in richmond [short drive or about 15 min walk], we all congregated in the bar later,what a fantastic night we had. Jo encouraged us to play our guitar and we had a great night. beer was good,and she put on free sandwiches for us.she even donated £20 to our charity cancer research as did one of the locals. We also won the quiz which also went to the charity.she arranged bacon sandwiches next morning for the riders and the support team had a fantastic breakfast in the superb dining room. great place to stop great rooms, fantastic food, good beer ,great staff

Room Tip: room 2 great view of richmond castle

on 30th March 2013 our daughter melanie married kenny and we held the reception at the Holly Hill Inn. The food was apsolutely excellent. The Chef Fiona and the Landlady Jo met with me beforehand to discuss the food, wine etc for the day and they were both extremely helpful with suggestions on which food and wines to have etc. The restaurant is a beautiful room anyway but when we entered the room that day the way the room had been arranged was spectacular. nothing was to much trouble and I would recommend this venue to anyone considering a large party or wedding - or simply a meal for two. we had pimms on arrival and a lovely three course meal followed later on with a fantastic buffet. some people go that extra mile to make something special and Jo and Fiona certainly did that for Melanie and Kenny that day.
