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’.

Guest comments

'We have visited three times so we have got to know the hotel. The gourmet break is excellent value for money. The food is wonderful and the service is excellent. They are all very friendly. Breakfast is good, taken round a large table. Rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable. ' - RW - January, 2017
