Good Hotel Guide Review
‘Warm and friendly’, and ‘good value’ to boot, Louise Dinnes’s Victorian pub-with-rooms stands in a conservation village surrounded by national parkland of windswept fells. The popular eating and drinking areas – with panelled walls, tartan carpeting, nature prints, a stag’s head, and hops hanging – enjoy ‘brisk trade’. ‘And rightly so!’ Besides the real ales and Cumbrian spirits behind the bar, chef Scott Fairweather’s food is ‘outstanding’, say guests in 2017. ‘We enjoyed a starter of goat’s cheese and beetroot, with gingerbread, raspberries and balsamic cubes; scallops with butternut risotto; fish pie topped with creamy potato, enfolding a poached egg.’ ‘Well-maintained’ bedrooms (some, with external access, suitable for guests travelling with their dogs) vary in size and style; each is supplied with welcome touches such as extra-large towels and organic toiletries. The Yorkshire Dales call for a hearty expedition: staff can advise on local rambles; there are bicycles and helmets for hire. For those visitors keen on a sit-down, the riverside garden, with its resident red squirrels, is a fine spot on a sunny day. (TL, SW, Robert Gower)
