“A real must-try with a lovely convivial atmosphere”, this historic former mill combines a “dining room and bar in heavy, dark wood that feels like it hasn’t changed much since the eighteenth century and the days of the BBC’s Gentleman Jack” (which was filmed here) with “food that’s much more modern (though retaining a Yorkshire heartiness)” from “very talented and inventive chef Will Webster”. There’s also a “fabulous wine list, with many offered by the glass”.

“Beautiful old Yorkshire inn” – originally an eighteenth-century corn and spinning mill – that hosts “some seriously excellent cooking” from chef Will Webster. It’s a “fabulous and cosy spot” – in a place made famous by TV’s ‘Gentleman Jack’ – “and best of all there’s no mobile phone reception, so you can escape the world for a couple of hours of peace!”. Top Menu Tip – “breaded lamb spam and lamb-fat peas”.

“Fabulous food, a great pint and a lovely atmosphere…what more could you want!” – the tenor of all reports on this “atmospheric” gastropub with “lovely bedrooms”. It started life as a corn and spinning mill, before being converted to a country boozer in 1890 – and today its original features, open fires and low-beamed ceilings form a pleasant backdrop to the “outstanding locally sourced” food.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
