Travelled 40 mile round trip today to make use of the Guardian 2 for 1 meal offer. I printed the voucher and phoned last week to check that they were taking part in the offer only to be told when we got there today that because it was so popular they had stopped accepting the vouchers 2 days ago!!

Dear Elaine, Please accept our apologies for this. We had no option but to withdraw from this offer - not because it had proved too popular but because it had been badly managed by The Guardian and was causing problems. At the time of your inquiry we were indeed still running it but as you did not pre-book a table...

We really liked our stay here, a comfortable, clean room with nice views over the valley, evening meal was fantastic and there was a good choice of local beers. We really enjoyed our meal of duck breast, beef stew and summer pudding. Extensive wine list too. Lots of nooks and crannys to tuck ourselves away into, and the lounge just...

We had a lovely meal here and although the staff were busy with a wedding they did their best to accommodate us, as we had turned up 'on spec'. Lovely food served imaginatively, but we thought it at the higher end of our budget.

My daughter chose the CB Inn for her wedding and so we booked all of the 19 rooms for our party over the full weekend. Mike the wedding organiser was superb and nothing was too much trouble for him. Everyone really enjoyed being in such a wonderful location in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales with absolutely stunning views. The...

I invited my daughter and her partner to stay here with me for a long weekend to celebrate her 28th birthday. We had a most wonderful time. The service was exceptionally friendly and prompt.

The pub is located right in the middle of the Dales in a lovely peaceful location, the rooms were clean and well decorated as was the rest of the pub/restaurant, and the food was good. We stayed for 2 days and there was always a few locals there of which gave it a good pub atmosphere. Once we got home...

This is inone of the finest locations in Yorkshire. Set in beautiful Arkangarthdale this pub has been refurbished to a high standard but has not lost its character or connections with its origins. We went here for dinner as we live in North Yorkshire and thoroughly enjoyed the food, the ambiance and he service.

The initial welcome was friendly and helpful, the room we had (twin Rm 14) was spacious, comfortable, clean and well serviced. The food was excellent and service was very good. We have added this to our (quite small!) list of places well worth visiting again. As a tip - do try the starters on the menu - the asparagus salad...

The CB Inn sets a standard for others to aspire to. The whole business is run to very high standards but, although it is quite upmarket, it is not in any way pretentious. The management and staff are all very welcoming. The rooms are quiet, comfortable, spacious, spotlessly clean and very well appointed. Many have great views over the stunning...
