Good Hotel Guide Review
In a prime position overlooking Grassington’s cobbled village square, this handsome Georgian house, now a restaurant-with-rooms, delights first-time visitors with its chic style. 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. Bedrooms are striking with oversized headboards, designer wallpapers and chandeliers. Decadent touches might include a gold-painted French-style bed or in-room roll-top bath. All rooms have a village view, modern bathroom and home-made biscuits. After a day’s walking, have a drink on the buzzy terrace – try their own-label gin – before dining on dishes such as scallops with pancetta and pea purée, and lamb with roast onion and fondant potato. Practically everything is made in-house, including ice cream and cheese biscuits. Generous breakfasts include home-made granola, smoked salmon, and local bacon and sausages in a full Yorkshire grill.
