The start of the experience of visiting The Yorke Arms is the journey there. You leave the busy A roads as you travel up towards Pateley Bridge and then continue on past Gouthwaite Reservoir and meander along the winding small road until you arrive at this wonderful 18th century coaching Inn.
Tucked away in remote Ramsgill the ivy glad building almost gives you a warm hug as you park up on the gravel drive.
Once inside this very quaint and comfortable building its original features start to hit you.
From the magnificent shiny bitumen coated stone flagged floors to the crackle of the open fires within the guest lounge make you feel instantly at home.
Contemporary paintings are mixed with cosy seating and a pint of hand pulled bitter is an excellent way to start to enjoy this wonderful experience.
We stayed in a superior room in the more modern courtyard at the rear of the building, this consisted of a two tier design which had a comfortable lounge and tv area below the bedroom and bathroom.
We relaxed in our room before getting ready for our evening meal.
We crossed back into the main house, as we entered you pass a room with a window and for the first time we get a glimpse of the Chef-Patron Frances Atkins.
This really was a nice surprise and it was also very reassuring to know the person with the name above the door was actually going to be behind the stove.
We sat back in the guest lounge and enjoyed a drink whilst selecting the wine and also opting for the tasting menu.
We were then transferred to a small room to the side of the main restaurant, this was intimate and very tastily decorated, the log fire also made it a very pleasant temperature.
Onto the food and drink, 8 courses each with a different elements, as with all tasting menus it is unlikely every course will be for you, but the partridge and the long horn beef courses both stood out, these were followed by some lovely desserts and then a very welcoming cheese course to finish, which brought some contrast to the rich courses that proceeded it.
To accompany the food we selected a very nice bottle of Pouilly Fume and an exceptional bottle of Chateau Lascombes, both complemented the food very well.
We then retired back to the lounge and enjoyed a coffee and tea along with a few wee drams of whisky.
An excellent way to end a wonderfully relaxed evening.
The breakfast the following morning was served in the main restaurant, we opted for full breakfast which was plentiful and delicious.
In summary, the trip to The Yorke Arms was a very enjoyable one, at the heart of it was the sense of relaxation, we just wish we could have stayed longer.
Was everything perfect? Well not quite, the bathroom was probably not as swish as some we have previously stayed in and the mark up on the top end wines was eye watering, that being said they did provide a wide range of choice to suit every pocket.
It was nice to see the host on several occasions and all the staff were very polite and tried to provide the balance between friendly and formal.
With the business up for sale it will be interesting to see if it will remain as we found it, the loss of the star and the personal touches of the owner may take some replacing but we would definitely give it a chance, it shows Yorkshire at its best.

We stayed at the Yorke Arms for the 1st time in 2013. It was exceptional in every way. We have returned quite a number of times, always something to anticipate and look forward to - a real treat. This overnight stay was no exception. From the friendly and helpful initial booking, the drive up to Ramsgill with the beautiful reservoir alongside the road, the welcome on arrival, and tea and biscuits (a small regret is that they don't do the afternoon tea as fully as they used to, although you still get a selection of biscuits and a piece of fruitcake and cheese). The courtyard rooms are beautiful and spacious, the grounds lovely. Our meals were as excellent as always, bursting with so many flavours and textures. The Yorke Arms never disappoints. Looking forward to our next visit! Very much recommended.

The Yorke Arms restaurant does not fail to impress both in service and quality of the food. The welcome is formal and somewhat subdued however a great prelude to the high notes of the dining experience.
The presentation, quality of ingredients and cooking skill coupled with excellent service is sound testimony to Michelin status.
Will be back next summer to enjoy the views and countryside in a fabulous location.

A nice warm country pub setting with good food, but not more.
We are happy to find this place as a change of scene for our 8 days driving trip in the region.
We had tried the discovery menu and found the best dish is scallops, desserts are rather repetitive.
It should be called 6 course meal not 8 course meal.
