We called in for a late lunch today. We ate Goan fish curry with rice and pineapple chutney, a Tempest steak burger and Salmon Steak on a prawn and asparagus risotto. All were very good the salmon being the star of the show. Already decided what we are having next visit!

The start of our trip was here at the Tempest. Many thanks to other reviewers who said stay in Suite 19. The room itself is cosy with a superb super king bed. We slept for 11 hours solid. Heaven. There is an electric log fire with 2 comfy armchairs to chill in and frosted glass doors leading on to the...

I visited the Tempest on new years day with family. The bar area was very cosy with the open fire providing plenty of warmth. We were greeted with a smile and shown to our table straight away. The choice of food was fantastic and would suit the fussiest of diners. The starters were fine, especially the pork belly. Three of...

Came here on 27th Dec for a 50th wedding anniversary celebration. A relaxed function room with excellent service. The food was lovely, especially the deserts.... We then stayed overnight to avoid drinking and driving. The room was excellent, very comfortable bed and the bathroom was very clean and nice toiletries were provided. We ate in the bar that evening and...

Our annual trip to the Tempest saw us in a hot tub room this year. Once again we were not disappointed, superb service at reception, not many places offer you free cake and biscuits as you arrive. The room was spacious, very clean and had all you needed for our stay. Unfortunately the after affects of a recent illness hindered...

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...
