Good Hotel Guide Review

Michael and Sasha Ibbotson carry on a 300-year history of hosting at this characterful country pub-with-rooms, on an ancient Celtic track-way to York. The village pub is all preserved flagstone floors, wood panelling, log fires and well-pulled pints; an ‘interesting and varied’ blackboard menu lists ‘excellent’ pub classics and daily specials (including vegetarian and gluten-free options). All but one of the country-style bedrooms are in converted farm buildings. Each has a large bed, space to sit, a tea and coffee tray and good toiletries. On a clear day, take in panoramic views across the Vale of York, all the way to the towers of York Minster. Walks from the door; walking guides available. 3 miles E of Easingwold. Convenient for Park-and-Ride into York.

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
