Harden's says

It's tasting menus only (for which you must book - they'll even open for lunch Thu-Sat if you book ahead) at this Yorkshire gem; our formula price is on the low side - the restaurant advises us to expect a per-head cost of around £100.

A “fabulous and ancient inn run by Paul Jackson and his wife Liz”, overlooking the North York Moors. Paul is a “a self-taught chef who produces some of the most spectacular food, in highly imaginative tasting menus” (the only option, and running at either six or eight courses, with “veggie options very good”). Once again, all who report can’t rate the service highly enough.

“A husband and wife labour of love” – Paul and Liz Jackson’s ancient inn (12th century) overlooking the North York Moors offers “a feast for all the senses” with its six-course and eight-course tasting menus (there’s no à la carte). “Service is exceptional with a really personal touch”.

This 13th-century inn is “a little gem set on a hill overlooking the North Yorks Moors”; while Paul Jackson’s cooking is “not what you would expect in these parts (Yorkshire food is not normally served up in seven small courses!)” – the results are “superb”.

“A charming inn, tucked away in glorious countryside close to Helmsley and Rievaulx Abbey” – and what “astonishing food to find in the middle of nowhere essentially” from chef Paul Jackson (“beautifully prepared local ingredients, with game a highlight”). Service is a highpoint too, with “serious attention to detail and guests”.
