Good Hotel Guide Review

‘A fashionable place that attracts far-flung customers’, this updated pub-with-rooms stands in a small village overlooking the Vale of Mowbray, on the edge of the North York Moors. ‘The outstanding rooms and welcoming staff make it a great place to stay.’ The rustic pub looks the part: there are flagstones, low beams, wooden settles, a log fire in cool weather; local beers and hand-pulled ales. Here, in the ‘tastefully decorated’ restaurant, and on the tiered terrace in sunshine, tuck in to ‘good cooking at reasonable prices’. Straightforward and hearty, county-showcasing dishes include roast rack and slow-braised shoulder croquette of Yorkshire lamb; ‘a tasty medium-rare sirloin steak with a Yorkshire Blue sauce’. Most of the ‘well-appointed bedrooms’ are set around a courtyard garden (watch out for slippery steps after rain); two are in the main building. ‘All the rooms are equally good.’ ‘My spacious garden room had a three-seater sofa and two easy chairs. A gas-fired imitation log fire made it all very cosy.’ ‘Tempting breakfasts’ are ‘promptly served’. Cleveland Tontine, Northallerton (see Shortlist entry), is part of the same Provenance Inns group.

Guest comments

'Good cooking at reasonable prices and a very tempting and promptly served breakfast, with succulent fruit salad and freshly squeezed juices bursting with flavour. The rooms are very well appointed. ' - Robert Gower - March, 2017
'The outstanding rooms and welcoming staff make this a great place to stay. Some sharpening up on the kitchen would raise its game even higher. On a return visit we enjoyed our spacious and comfortable garden room. It is worth asking for a fireplace room. ' - DW - February, 2016
