it is while since I visited this lovely hotel set in wath in nidderdale up the valley from Pateley Bridge. We went for lunch and ate from the restaurant menu in the comfortable bar. A coal fire was burning gently next to us and we were given a great welcome. Both the restaurant and bar menus are appetising. They were just coming to the end of a lobster festival. I started with a beeatifully smooth mousse de canard served with a delicious chutney salad and toast. I then had a whole lobster thermidor with vegetables. The sauce was magnificent-not too cheesy with a hint of brandy. Draught black sheep bitter in perfect condition and a fairly priced glass of Marlborough sauvignon blanc.
