Well positioned in the picturesque village, The Castle Arms is an ideal base for visiting the many attractions that this part of North Yorkshire has to offer, with Ripon just ten miles to the south and Wensleydale five minutes drive to the north.
Our room was clean, well furnished and had lighting that was bright enought to read by! Although our two-night stay coincided with a particularly cold snap, the fully adjustable heating kept the room comfortably warm. There was no noise from the pub and, as you would expect in a rural village, a complete absence of traffic noise.
Breakfast, served in the dining room, was one of the best we have experienced. Crisp, clean tablecloths, nicely presented, lots of choice and fast, friendly service. The Full English would put many others to shame.
We didn't have the opportunity to sample the evening menu but it was imaginative and sensibly priced.
Would we stay here again? Yes we would! Another visit is already in the diary - to do justice to Ripon and to sample the Castle's mouth-watering evening menu!
By the way, they have an open fire in the bar and the beer is superb. Enough said!More
