Good Hotel Guide Review
Once a stopover for the York-to-Whitby stagecoach, this 16th-century coaching inn is today a ‘lovely, friendly’ spot, its window boxes abloom in season. It has been owned by the Buchanan family for 35 years. The cosy, traditional bar (old beams, tartan carpet, local ales, mismatched wooden chairs) is a popular watering hole; in the restaurant, chef Darren Clemmit’s ‘short and simple’ menus please. Served in the smart dining room, Yorkshire produce features in ‘honest dishes’ such as grilled Lowna goat’s cheese, beetroot relish, Cheddar biscuit; ‘beautifully cooked rabbit with pistachio and pickled raspberries’. Stay the night in a bedroom supplied with tea, coffee, home-made biscuits and the bathrobes to enjoy them in. Rooms in the main house are more traditionally styled; those in the converted stables are ‘a delight: airy, spacious, well appointed’. Board games and books await by the log-burner in the beamed Bothy lounge. The inn stands in the midst of the action in this ‘delightful market town’, so plug in the electric car (there are three charging units) and explore on foot; two minutes down the street, hop aboard the heritage steam train to the coast.
