Stayed here for two nights (23/24th Nov) whilst visiting Harrogate and Skipton. The new owners made us very welcome on arrival as did the very nice log fires throughout the bar area.The accommodation is very clean and tidy with low very comfortable beds. The bathroom ceiling in our room was in need of some redecoration, but apparently this is in hand to be repainted. The food was exceptionally good both in quality and quantity. The lamb "special" was superb as was the starter of a "game breakfast". My partner had their fish supper one night and it was huge with a delicious light batter. We would certainly stay here again.
