We visited here last Sunday, arriving around 2.30pm, and parked our camper van in one of the allocated bays, having pre-booked a space. A courtesy trip to the bar to notify our arrival, and we were greeted by very friendly staff who made us feel...More

Not sure what the own told you but the truth is we have only been to the lamb inn once with this owner. We did purchase four drinks but the owner said in his response the kids had water. He also said our kids were over six... More
Thank you for your review about our family owned freehouse. Unfortunately unlike a lot of 'pubmaster' owned pubs we do not have the sort of money pub companies have to throw at their pubs, eg The Angel, The Crab and Lobster, The Moor and Pheasant. All our efforts are put into excellent food, good honest portions and superb service. However as you have commented we are good value. We only use local fresh produce and everything is home cooked. We have an excellent wine list, a good range of beers and as you will see on tripadvisor not a lot of other local places can compare with the Sunday lunch. We have 5 stars from the Hygiene people at Harrogate Council four and a half stars with Tripadvisor. I feel if you call in again soon you will be impressed at the refurb we had done last year. If not at least try the Yorkshire Classic Real Ale, the Five Foot Track Shiraz and if you are hungry The Steak and Ale pie or Fish and Chips. Hopefully after your next visit we will get more than 2 stars for our efforts. Steven Bannister (owner)
