Building very traditional and a little tired. Welcome not great by the landlady, she was very sour faced, food average. The pub needs updating and looks like it's needs care and attention.

When visiting family up in the Yorkshire Dales, they took me to one of their favourite pubs just down the road from their house. Its definitely a little village pub and is perfect to pop in for a drink or a bit of pub food. When we were there it wasn't as busy as normal however everyone was so friendly... More

Called in here whilst out walking. A lovely village pub with friendly regulars (makes a refeshing change) and small but excellent range of beers. A great place for a great pint and interesting conversation.

Stopped here for lunch, while exploring north Yorkshire. Haddock was clearly a proprietary frozen product, over cooked and bland. Wifes scampi was equally uninspiring. Pub is clearly popular with local, but as a visitor we felt less welcome and were unimpressed.
