    Good Hotel Guide Review

    There’s a ‘congenial’ ambience at this 14th-century inn on the edge of the North York Moors, the whole bolstered by intriguing modern meals and unabashedly rustic elements – stuffed birds, antlers, ‘a stag’s head of some size’. The Michelin-starred restaurant, run by chef/patron Andrew Pern, attracts gourmands in search of the taste-of-the-countryside dishes – try carpaccio of malt whisky barrel-smoked fallow deer, house-pickled walnuts, haggis bonbon, foraged berries; garden beetroot tarte Tatin, roasted crones, buttered curly kale, black truffle. In former farm buildings across the way, beams and quirky features abound in the characterful bedrooms: one has a rope-slung bed, another, tartan-walled, has a piano. Two rooms joined by a hallway work well as a family suite. ‘Mine had a central snooker table; antique reproduction furnishings; biscuits, chocolate bars, magazines and books. A useful guide included details of expeditions and walks.’ Take drinks on the terrace in fine weather, or retreat into the residents’ lounge: ‘candles created an intimate light on a winter’s night’. ‘Outstanding’ breakfasts, with ‘robust coffee right for stirring one into life’, are ‘not to be missed’.
