Good Hotel Guide Review
In a 'near-perfect position in the village square', this handsome Georgian house, now a restaurant-with-rooms, is 'an absolute delight', write readers. Run by Sue and John Rudden since 2008, it provides a touch of glamour to match John’s creative cooking without losing the warmth of a Yorkshire welcome. The bar sports sea-blue velvet seats and lemon-panelled walls while the conservatory dining room has bold lighting, burnished mirrors and shimmery wallpaper. Striking bedrooms have oversized headboards, designer wallpapers and chandeliers. Decadent touches might include a gold-painted French-style bed or in-room bath. 'Our room was smaller than we expected for a superior room but this is an old building and compromises are to be expected,' report our readers, who found the kitchen extractor fans noisy. After a day’s walking, have a drink on the buzzy terrace – try their own-label gin – before dinner. One guest was disappointed with his pork, which was 'nothing special' but added that the fish dishes were 'better'; others reported that 'the cooking standard is high.' 'Good breakfasts' include home-made granola, smoked salmon, and a full Yorkshire. (John and Kay Patterson, and others)
