Staying nearby we say a fairly impressive menu for this place so we called for dinner on a Tuesday evening. 6.45p.m.- dining room empty and no one eating in the bar. We were told the dining room was shut for a quiz evening. We were shown a very limited menu compared to the one we had seen earlier. Drinks were...

We stayed overnight at The Shoulder of Mutton and also ate in the restaurant. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, the rooms are clean and the food was really nice (the pie was excellent). Although situated a little way out of Richmond, it is within an easy driving distance of several Yorkshire attractions and the view from the pub...

Popped into the Shoulder of Mutton for the first time in years. The food was good and much better than usual pub grub. The service though was excellent, our waitress was possibly the happiest person on earth. With country pubs on the decline, pubs like this need to keep going

We stayed for two nights on a short break in the dales. Warm welcome from Matt and we stayed in the family room which was warm, comfortable and very clean. The food on both nights was very good and gluten free options weren't a problem. The hosting by Matt and Kirsty made us feel very much at home. Breakfast was...

The Shoulder of Mutton in rural North Yorkshire is well worth a visit. Typical pub grub, reasonably priced, I would really recommend the Hunters Chicken. The decor is a little dated (dark brown furniture etc) but this wouldn't put me off making a return visit when next in the area.

Stayed overnight 25th February, warm welcome from Kirsty. Stayed in the family room , a double bed and a single ensuite. Room had a lovely view over the churchyard and room spotlessly clean. Kirby Hill is four miles from Richmond and close to the A66 , so in an ideal location in the Yorkshire dales. Breakfast was fantastic, selection of...

So glad we found out where this was during the day or it may have been difficult but it was a dark December day! People lovely, caring but not over the top. Room comfortable with plenty of towels. Small bathroom, but excellent value for money. Evening meal was lovely as was breakfast. So great to find somewhere affordable with good...

Me and Hubby have just returned from a 3 night B&B stay stay here. What a lovely place to spend a break-away, with a warm welcome from Kirsty and Matt the new Landlords. A gorgeous young couple, nothing too much trouble for them, and they work so hard to make everything as comfortable as possible. The Inn itself is set...

We stayed 2 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. With a warm and friendly welcome from new landlord Matthew and Kirsty. We stayed in the annexe, which was warm and comfortable. Food was excellent and good beer too. We will be back again as soon as possible. Thank you and good luck for the future. John & Jacqui -...
