Good Hotel Guide Review

Michael and Sasha Ibbotson’s village pub-with-rooms has stone flags, wood panelling and log fires – the legacy of three centuries of hosting visitors following an ancient Celtic trail to York. The popular bar offers well-pulled pints and an ‘interesting, varied’ blackboard menu of ‘excellent’ pub classics and daily specials (including vegetarian and gluten-free options), perhaps grilled Yorkshire pork chop, bubble and squeak, seasonal greens, apple sauce. The old outbuildings are now roomy country-style bedrooms. In each: a large bed, a spot to sit with a cuppa from the hospitality tray, good toiletries. On clear days, panoramic views stretch all the way to York Minster. Walks from the door; walking guides available.

Guest comments

'Has become more of a restaurant-with-rooms than an inn with restaurant. The main bar area is now set mainly for dining. The food was excellent, with an interesting and varied choice, and overall the staff were friendly and helpful. Even on two cold January nights it was busy. Our accomodation (field cottage) was as expected small but very clean. The the bathroom was a little cold (no radiator) although it should be fine for most of the year. Overall good quality, excellent value dining and accomodation. ' - MH - January, 2016
