Good food, good well kept beer , quality rooms and excellent service. What more is there to know? The only let down was a very rowdy shooting party with no consideration for others. No fault of the hotel what so ever.

There were lots of other really nice...

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, warm welcome by staff, very helpful. Room spotlessly clean and spacious. Plenty of tea, coffee, milk biscuits etc on tray in room. Dinner excellent, good service, plentiful portions,well cooked, not overly cheap but worth the money, would definitely stay here again.

Bedroom wise - couldn't fault it. Lovely spacious and clean room. Super comfy king size bed, lovely clean bathroom (great shower!). Nice and quiet too so we both...

My friends and I visited this resturant the night before my bestfriends wedding after it was recommended to us by the staff at Swinton Park. We had a lovely evening and the food was to die for. Such a cosy atmosphere and I would love to go again.

Really great food and gigantic portions. I had steak and ale pie which was excellent quality and my wife and I shared a baked camembert for starter which left us both full before our mains had arrived. Superb range of Theakston's beers to, as you would expect. There is also a lovely inviting bar area and friendly staff to boot....
