We popped in here (for the first time) the other lunchtime. It was around 1:45 and we were greeted by a very nice lady who straight away said that there was no hurry as lunch was served till 2:30 "so sit down and take your time".
There was plenty of choice and the food was nicely served and in big portions - try the fish medley platter.
This pub is probably on the wrong side of the main road to attract too many casual visitors which is a pity as it was well worth braving the traffic and we'll certainly be back.
Gentlemen must visit the toilets as there is a novelty in store.

We had a great stay at the Dalesway Hotel. Friendly welcome, good food, lovely room. Good location for trips out. The owner Ian was helpful, as were all his staff. Jenna, Toby, Margaret to name a few. The breakfasts were very good value, as we're the evening meals. We would definitely stay again and recommend it to others. Paul and Susy of Chingford

Room Tip: Midweek a deluxe room is very good value

Stayed here for two nights as a base for walking in the area. Staff are friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was showing signs of wear and was in need of a lick of paint. It was large however as was the bathroom. Breakfasts are extra but are worth it, being cooked fresh to order and a good start to the day. On-site parking is for two cars only but we had no problem finding a space on the adjacent road. Location is very central and for us the main road wasn't a problem for noise.

Stayed on the Saturday night. Very friendly and helpful reception staff. Took my bag to the room and gave me lots of helpful local information. Bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was first class.

We went to the Dalesway Hotel for a Carvery Lunch on the 29th September. The food was tasteless and cold, we mentioned this to a member of staff and he seemed very uninterested and took the plates away. We will not be returning to this hotel again.

I have to take issue with this review.
Fortunately, I had a group of family and friends who visited and we all had Sunday Carvery lunch at the Dalesway at 3pm. Everyone commented on how great the food was.
It was most definitely HOT.
I had 6 different fresh vegetables, roast potatoes, stuffing and a selection of sauces and roast Beef, accompanied by home made Yorkshire Puddings and a rich gravy.
How on earth can fresh food like this be tasteless ?

The food is hot when you leave the carvery, absolutely no question of that, but of course it will cool down in time.
Perhaps you should learn to eat a little quicker.
