We visited on a fairly busy Friday evening , Darren and the staff were very attentive, and gave the impression nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent and plenty of it. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend and will definitely be going back.

Not sure but seems to be a great area for cyclists and not too far from the Tour de Yorkshire routes of last year and the Coast to Coast Route. The area is quite flat but has the advantage of the North York Moors to the east... More
