Good Hotel Guide Review
Across a cobbled driveway, Paul and Helen Klein’s ‘sophisticated’ 18th-century inn is an ‘utterly authentic’ slice of rural Wensleydale hospitality. The former coaching house is liked for its ‘good atmosphere’ and ‘outstanding service’. Within, crackling log fires, settles, ‘pleasant, knowledgeable staff’, and many locals (whose dogs get a bowl of water) enjoying hand-pumped ales. In the bar and candlelit restaurant, ‘well-executed comfort food’: cassoulet of Yorkshire duck confit, Morteau sausage, roasted tomato and white beans, served with sourdough and sauerkraut. Provençal-style bedrooms, ‘spotlessly clean and comfortable’, occupy the main building and converted outbuildings. Breakfast will see you through to lunch.
