A group of us visited the Galphay Inn last Friday evening. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. Although it is a pub the food I would say, is 'superior pub food'. The menu offered a wide variety of dishes with many vegetarian options, all...More

Nice location with good beer. We only had main courses. Tasty sauces but meats were over cooked. Probably too many choices on the menu to get everything right. Service felt a bit prescriptive

Booked a table for 2 for dinner - as we had been informed by a local that it was a good dog friendly pub, but booking is advised as it is popular. Upon arrival, we were seated in the pub rather than dining area as...More

Lovely food and good choice. Service wasn't great, two staff on but one didn't seem to know what the other was doing and waitress kept looking at her mobile. Great outdoor area for adults but could have done with a tidy.

An unspoilt, traditional village inn serving great Yorkshire ales, fine wines and locally sourced home cooked meals and snacks in the bar and adjacent dining area. We are family and dog friendly and proud to be the heart of the community.
