Good Hotel Guide Review
On the edge of the North York Moors, this quintessential village inn in tranquil Coxwold has locals and dogs in the bar, country fare in the dining room and fuss-free bedrooms above. The charming traditional exterior, with honey-coloured stone and tables on the cobbled terrace, is matched within, where you will find flagged floors, log fires, beams, and lots of shiny copper and brass. Eat in the bar or dining room, the latter with plaid carpet and fresh flowers, from the same menu of classic country dishes, perhaps home-made steak and ale pie, Whitby scampi or chicken supreme with wild garlic pesto. ‘The food is good with a good blackboard menu to supplement,’ reports a guest who praised the ‘wide choice’ of local beers and well-priced wines. ‘Slightly quirky’ bedrooms have a cottagey charm with light-oak furniture and perhaps a wrought iron or sleigh bed – a four-poster in one – floral and striped fabrics and views over the village or Howardian hills. Some are on the cosy side; all have a modern en suite bathroom, apart from the summer-only Garden Room, with a shower and eco-loo in an adjoining shed. (Alasdair Adam)
