Who would have thought that the humble turnip could have been elevated to such gastronomic heights as this festive amuse-bouche created by Frances Atkins at the wonderful Yorke Arms Christmas break. We booked to stay Cristmas eve, day and Boxing Day and enjoyed a most restful and gourmet experience. The amuse-bouche, a drift of snowy creamed turnip and crystallised walnuts and cranberries was a triumph. My starter of Native Lobster, cured wild Salmon, Shrimp, Smoked Avocado, Beetroot and Maple a fishy delight. I also enjoyed the Truffle Cod Mozzarella, Langoustine, Linguini, sea Rosemary. There was Goose, Turkey and delicious Christmas Pud and even Bitter Chocolate Soufflé, Grand Marnier Ice Cream, Kumquat. We managed a few walks over the hills and dales and can honestly say it is an experience We will be never forget! Thank you Bill and Frances Atkins. .!

We have eaten at The Yorke Arms a number of times over the years,but as a birthday treat for my wife, our sons had booked us into a suite for an overnight stay.
The room was well appointed and inevitably the food was exquisite.
It is evident that much care is taken over the preparation of every dish.
The staff are attentive and knowledgeable.
Our sons travelled from Surrey to join us for lunch and they too were impressed.,particularly as the hotel has well kept,hand pulled Black Sheep Ale-one of their (and my) favourites.
My only criticism (and this is not of the hotel) is the standard of dress of some of the patrons-what point are people trying to make by going to an upmarket,seriously expensive, Michelin starred restaurant dressed in tee shirts and jeans?
Is it two fingers to conformity?-whatever the reason I find it annoying and a distraction at what is unquestionably one of the best restaurants in the country.

We have just returned from an overnight stay at The Yorke Arms. We stayed in the Pheasant bedroom and were very comfortable, with a lovely large bed, luxurious toiletries, a cafetiere of coffee and fresh milk, freshly baked flapjack and brownies and plenty of magazines. But of course, the main attraction was the food and the real reason for choosing to stay here. We were blown away by the quality. Every tiny part of each course was planned and executed to perfection and every mouthful delivered exceptional flavours and textures. I also loved the personal service, we were met at the door and shown to our room straightaway. Afternoon drinks were served in the residents bar with handmade crisps by attentive staff. Such is the personal touch that we didn't need to sign for them and when we asked for a bottle of water to be brought to the room as we left the restaurant, we didn't have to give our name or room as staff simply know their guests. As we enjoyed an aperitif prior to dinner, the chef came around to ask if we had any questions about the menu and made us feel very welcome. Again, in the morning when we asked to borrow a map book (as we mistrusted the way our Satnav had brought us), the lady at Reception helped us by giving really detailed directions for a more direct route. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable stay, amazing food and I very much look forward to returning soon.

We went for the food, but as a hotel it is excellent. Lovely log fires in a gorgeous old building, with good size rooms and very comfortable beds, and helpful staff. The range of drinks was impressive, and the setting is beautiful, although you might prefer to go in decent weather, as it is a bit remote. Breakfast was also very good - a pleasant change from the usual standard (and not great quality) English breakfast that is so common.

Room Tip: Although all rooms are good, we felt it was worth upgrading to the suites for a special occasion.

A perfect pint of Black Sheep in the quaint lounge in front of a roaring log fire was just what I needed after a long drive.
I was a bit peckish so asked for a bag of crisps and was served a nice bowl of crisps and had a good chat with the friendly and courteous waiter who was genuinely interested in our conversation.
Our evening meal was excellently cooked, well presented and without problem, even though we were a fair sized party. Food was delicious and not over seasoned, which can be an experience in some Michelin star establishments.
I experienced only courteous staff who showed none of the disinterested traits mentioned by some contributors to TA.
The room was well set out, reasonably spacious for a property of this type, clean and with good facilities that all worked properly.
I felt very welcome and will come back.
