Our food was really nice the service we received from a young man called Micheal was nice and polite, the chap who I'm guessing was the boss was exceptionally RUDE to both Micheal his fellow colleague and indeed us as dinners! When he said he would take a couple of desserts of the bill for us he very sharply snapped... More

Driving back to Leeds after a couple of days in Penrith, we took a wrong turn onto Grassington Road. We were looking for somewhere to turn round and found this gem. Not realising a booking might have been advisable, in we went. The staff were excellent and, despite not having booked, we were immediately shown to a table and off... More

Stopped in here on a Sunday lunchtime on the off chance we'd be able to eat. Despite being fully booked for the next sitting times, the staff let us know they could accommodate our party of 5 including a baby. The carvery was great, service fantastic and the deserts were to die for. Will be returning soon

Called in for lunch whilst out with family. We hadn't booked but were seated quickly. Food was very good, and my request for gluten free wasn't a problem. Staff were friendly and efficient even though they were very busy.

Visited here on our way back from Bolton Abbey. Good choice of food, especially the specials board. Couldn't accommodate me on a low fat diet, not willing to make a salad up which was disappointing. The roast lamb dinner and game pie were very tasty. The decor and furniture needs updating as very tired looking this also included the toilets.... More

Always a good meal here and the organisation is fantastic. Booking for the carvery is highly recommended as it gets very busy and deservedly so! Great choice of meats (there'a always two!) and loads of veg and sauces to go with and great friendly service always.

We had booked for 14 but there ended up 12 of us - which was no problem. There were 4 families we all sat together and wanted to eat together but payed separately as 4 families - our food came out at different times therefore one lot of us had finished before the others meals came out - the service...

We didn't get through the door as dogs are not welcome. I can understand that they might be restrained to a small area but to be banned altogether seems a bit strange particularly in a part of the world where walking it such a big thing.

We stayed at this hotel with friends and really enjoyed the evening meal there. The staff were friendly also and nothing was too much trouble for the staff.
