Good Hotel Guide Review
Traditional pub features of local ales in a fire-warmed snug are mixed with a smarter dining room with candlesticks and polished tables at the Buchanan family’s 16th-century coaching inn. Throughout, there is warm Yorkshire hospitality, with ‘enthusiastic and helpful’ staff. With a ‘serious’ approach to food, Darren Clemmit delivers classic dishes with creativity: perhaps ‘very good king scallops, with charred cauliflower purée, capers for piquancy’ or ‘well-cooked herb-roasted chicken breast’. There are pub staples, too, and most items, including bread, black pudding and ice cream, are made in the kitchen. One reader was delighted with the 23-page wine list with ‘11 very reasonably priced St-Émilion wines’ but another bewailed the ‘limited’ range of beer on draft. ‘Excellent’ breakfasts include home-made granola, kedgeree, mushrooms on brioche and a terrific Yorkshire grill. Rooms in the main building are the most characterful, with feature wallpapers, ‘attractive fabrics’ and the occasional antique. The modern bedrooms with slate floors in the converted stables at the back are more spacious. (DB, JS)
