This pub has been recently been bought back to life. The beer is well kept with good choices especially if yiou like Yorkshire Ales. Fairly small areas which means that as the food is so good you nust be there befor 6.30 pm each evening otherwise you will have to wait or come back later. We were in Askrigg for a week and used this place for both Sunday lunch and evening meals and we all thought is was exteremly good. Not a gastropub just really good food with fairly good choice. They even did smaller meals for those with appropriate needs.No garden but has benches etc out the front/side but you would need to keep an eye on small children.
