Friendly pub/inn with authentic Yorkshire feel
A lovely period property, the rooms are very authentic to the the time period of the building. The staff were lovely and couldn’t do enough to help or make you feel at home. The meals on the evening were massive! Great food and a lovely breakfast. I would recommend staying here if you want an authentic Yorkshire experience and a friendly stay.
