What a fabulous lunch we had today, Tartiflette for me and the husband had rabbit pie and he is a pie connoisseur, coming from Melton Mowbray he knows a lot about a good pie :-)! The ambience was cosy with a welcoming fire, a passionate French chef was discussing the past life of the pub with a lady, that many... More

Fantastic menu and the staff were great too. Fish soup was excellent and so was the fish Thai curry. So impressed taking a group of 15 there in the summer.

After reading so many positive reviews, we were looking forward to an evening meal at the Game Cock Inn. The staff were very helpful and pleasant although our waiter had limited knowledge of the food he was serving. The menu was ok and the meal not unpleasant but, sadly it didn't quite meet our expectations. The selection of real ale... More

Second time we've dined at this lovely pub. The food has a French twist but nothing "cordon bleu" just really good pub food. Staff are warm and friendly and if you enjoy good local brewed beer this is the place to come.

Excellent food, beautifully presented in this great village pub/restaurant. Had a quick look at the newly refurbished bedrooms which are tastefully decorated and very stylish. Would strongly recommend a visit either to eat, have a drink or to stay.

Beautifully cooked food - plentiful and hot. Pleasant atmosphere, super staff. My husband had the Sunday roast beef, our friend the rabbit in mustard sauce and I had duck confit. All were excellent. If you require vegetables with your confit or rabbit however, you need to order them separately as they are served with potatoes only.

Our first visit to The Game Cock Inn after being recommended to us by a friend - we stayed for 5 nights whilst visiting the Dales on a walking holiday. This is a fabulous property with quirky rooms both upstairs and downstairs. Our accommodation was first class and had recently been refurbished to a very high standard. A fantastic choice... More

We stopped for Sunday lunch on our way home from a weekend in Ingleton. We followed the signs from the main road about a mile to a cosy pub in the middle of Austwick village. We got a table in the bar next to the log fire, most of the restaurant tables had been reserved I think as it appeared... More
