Called in for an evening Sunday meal. Very good value. Excellent service by a very polite and attentive waitress. A good range of ales. A nice traditional Yorkshire pub with lots of character. Very satisfied and will return.

We arrived for a meal, service was slow throughout. Drinks brought over after a long delay. A few items had sold out by very early on a Sunday evening- including the steak pie. Two main meals were fine - fish and chips, and the pork roast. But the New York chicken had clearly been waiting for the other meals as it was cold.

Stopped for a much needed lunch, and we were not disappointed.

Cold day, great seat by the roaring fire. We had steaks, both were excellent and generous. The ale was a good selection, and in good form. The lass behind the bar was welcoming and the service staff were highly attentive. Prices were what you would expect for quality food. The pub itself is an attractive building inside and out, large and spacious, and comfortable. Would certainly use this pub again.

Good location on the main road with good access to the National Park and also with ample parking spaces. A nice room and they even put the heating on as it was not so warm which was welcome and I have stayed in other similar places where they do not do that in October. Friendly staff (they had some issues with the room when we arrived and then with their card system when paying but they were polite and good humoured)
Breakfast was not one of the better ones I have had. It was for example totally lacking in a fresh fruit option. Another downside is the really poor internet connection. It seems to be a problem in the area so I suppose you cannot blame anyone... but still worth knowing. We had dinner twice and it was good value...not gourmet ... but definitely OK.

Submitted a review a year ago after eating here a couple of times and having lovely food so thought it would be an obvious choice whilst in the area again. What a mistake.
Walked in to a near empty restaurant on a Sunday afternoon and thought it was a bit strange. The Sunday menu was reasonably priced with prices for 1,2 or 3 courses. Decided to share the pate starter but failed to read it properly and the fact that it was a ploughman’s pate which was in fact a cheese pate. Not really what we wanted but we ate it all the same.
The next course was the Sunday lunch and we had both opted for the roast beef. This arrived on a plate with a small Yorkshire pudding and gravy and the vegetables arrived separately. Mixed swede and carrot, broccoli, new potatoes and what was supposed to be roast potatoes. These were the most anemic roasts I have ever seen and were raw in the middle. As I didn’t like the veg, I asked for some peas and when they arrived we sent the potatoes back and told the waitress the food was disappointing. She apologised and returned with some more potatoes but again some of the so called roast potatoes were raw. The meat had no taste and the Yorkshire puddings stodgy and seemed to be warmed up.
I did hear another table comment on the poor quality of the food. It took a couple of attempts to get the bill and there was no offer of any reduction despite making the waitress aware that we thought the meal was disappointing.
No sign of the landlords we had met on the previous occasion.
Will we return again - no sorry it was a complete let down
