I cannot recommend the Tempest Arms highly enough, a wonderful setting, great food, cozy, relaxing with a fabulous atmosphere. The staff were excellent and very friendly. The brisk walk on Saturday morning in the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside after a most excellent traditional English breakfast was a real tonic. Martin and Veronica run a fantastic establishment and I will certainly... More

Me and my boyfriend booked here for three nights in a hot tub room suite as when we compared it to other log cabins with hot tubs etc elsewhere this place worked out cheaper and also included breakfast each morning. When we arrived we were informed our suite was still being serviced and would have to wait around 30 mins... More

Lovely staff , lovely atmosphere with fires burning. Had two hot beef and onion sandwiches which came with chips for only £ 8.95 which we thought really good value considering what other pubs like this can charge And they were gorgeous Will visit again to be sure

I have visited here many times over many years and always found the service, food, drink and surroundings to be spot on. It is your quintessential Yorkshire dales pub. Great beer, varied hearty menu (steak pudding is a must), very friendly but not over bearing staff, log fire and they allow dogs in the bar, what's not to like? We... More

We stayed here for my husband's 40th birthday in April. The hotel was great. We stayed in room 22. It was spacious and clean. It had nice touches like chocolates and lovely bath products. There is also cake when you check in, I recommend you take a piece to your room for a cuppa when you check in. We ate... More

I like eating out and having good food. The tempest provide the whole package. A wonderful welcome and a warmth that not many pubs manage to get right. A lovely atmosphere with great staff who care about your needs. I also was in the trade and think this is probably the best in Yorkshire. Wonderful.

Visited for a special family meal. Been here many times but this time was not enjoyable. We were there for 2.5 hours as the service was so slow. Not good when you have 2 children with you.

Dear Susan Firstly thank you for letting me know of your recent visit to the Tempest Arms, I am saddened to see your comments on Trip Advisor before even giving ourselves a chance to discuss through your apparent disappointing experience. I am equally disappointed as the Tempest holds special memories for you as you where married here back in 2012.... More
