    Service and Staff
    Property condition


    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
    • Disliked: Amenities

    Lovely staff but poorly managed: - Twin beds when we ordered double - Didn't have the wine they initially offered - Hand written 'menue' (sic) with only 7 main courses - The main course I ordered was supposedly no longer available but did in fact turn up albeit missing a main ingredient. - Breakfast chef did not turn in so no 'full English' - Final bill excluded our dinner from the previous night (we corrected). Otherwise, the rooms were clean and the pub has a decent atmosphere. The village (Escrick) is chocolate-box pretty (but quiet).

    Last minute booking. We wanted to visit York Further out than we thought but enjoyed getting the service bus into York which ran every 15 mins. Lovely breakfast.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    Newly refurbished, very smart, bright and clean with an interesting décor. Food choice very good and tasty. Bedrooms adequate but beds (twin Room 10) very comfy. Staff very friendly. The abattoir next door begins work at 5.0am, so with the windows open we were disturbed until the lorries left.

      Weather was warm, a simple fan would have made a world of difference in the comfort in the room at night.
