Good Hotel Guide Review
For three centuries Michael and Sasha Ibbotson’s village pub-with-rooms has hosted visitors following an ancient Celtic trail to York, and has been family-owned for two decades. Today, modern comforts sit alongside stone flags, wood panelling, inglenook fireplaces. The L-shaped bar offers well-pulled pints and an ‘interesting, varied’ blackboard menu of pub classics and daily specials (including vegetarian and gluten-free options), perhaps slow-cooked confit shoulder of Dales lamb, mashed potato and seasonal greens. 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. On clear days, panoramic views stretch all the way to York Minster. Walks from the door; guides available.
