Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Wow, what a wonderful place this is!’ A regular reader lauded Andrew Pern’s restaurant-with-rooms on the edge of the North York Moors, which has a Michelin star and ambience on tap. At the 14th-century thatched inn ‘one sinks back and is looked after by the very pleasant staff’. Even the background music raised a gentle smile: ‘I sat by the log stove with a whisky, enjoying the likes of Sinatra and Fitzgerald.’ ‘Lovely’ hunting lodge-style bedrooms in converted farm buildings opposite are ‘nicely decorated and spacious’, with ‘very quirky’ touches – a rope-slung bed, a piano, a snooker table. In the restaurant, readers savoured Andrew Pern’s ‘exceptional, wonderfully tasting’ dishes. The refined seasonal menus highlight local, foraged and home-grown ingredients, perhaps twice-baked Stinking Bishop cheese soufflé, red wine shallot relish, hay-roasted pear, grape verjus, crisp wheat; braised navarin of dry-aged Yorkshire Dales mutton, slow-roasted carrots, turnips, roast hazelnut and chicory salad. There are ‘thoughtful’ vegetarian and gluten-free options. Breakfast, served at ‘a large round table, meant everyone chatted’ and was ‘among the best we have ever eaten’. (Steve Hur, Robert Cooper)

Guest comments

'A most enjoyable and interesting stay. The tasting menu was fabulous - we ate everything. Staff were excellent, quick, and able to tell you about the food. Our largish bedroom had a fake log fire but the shower water was not quite hot enough. ' - Carol Jackson - July, 2019
'We were bowled over by the lovely rooms, the stunning breakfast room, and the restaurant and quality of the food. The surrounding countryside is breath-taking. Excellent value for money. ' - Jonathan Rose - May, 2019
'Superb food and service in a stylish old inn. In the summer, if clement, the garden is also a wonderful place to lunch. Characterful if occasionally slightly eccentrically designed bedrooms in a modern conversion of old buildings two minutes from the inn. Breakfast is taken in a large airy room at a vast circular table, like something out of Camelot. As good a breakfast as most people could wish for. Lovely village. ' - Richard Osborne - June, 2016
