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.
