Couldn't get in at The Lion Inn, Blakey Ridge, so drove back towards Gillamoor and found the White House Farm Inn in Rosedale Abbey. Had the traditional beef Sunday lunch. Food was good, service was friendly and efficient and beer was excellent.

Unless there has been a change in the last six weeks, it's the same chef. The staff don't seem to alter much - same bar staff and waiters as last year. Hope this helps.
