Having tried to book a table at short notice for a Saturday night recently, regrettably we found it fully booked. We left our details and were fortunately contacted on the day with a cancellation.
We were given an ideal table in a back room perfect for our needs, four adults two teenage children and a tired dog. It was almost private dining! The pub itself was welcoming, full of atmosphere and nicely busy. The food was excellent, and as you would expect mostly locally sourced, beef, lamb and game. The shrimp risotto starter was a triumph, if a little stingy. Ballantine of chicken was also worthy of mention. The Mains: Pork belly, local rib eye, sea bass and a beef casserole were devoured with gusto.
The local cheeseboard at around £7 easily satisfied two adults, Chocolate brownie was also delicious. Reasonable selection of wines and beers. All in all £200 ish for a brilliant meal and good wines and drinks for six was good value. They even kindly loaned us a corkscrew overnight!
If staying in Askrigg it would be my first choice.
