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.

“Hidden away in the countryside, with two bedrooms ideal for a romantic getaway”, Paul & Liz Jackson’s ancient (twelfth century) and picturesquely located inn overlooks the North York Moors. Not as well-known as some of its foodie rivals, it continues to win praise for its “excellent tasting menu”. In September 2021, it was crowned AA Restaurant with Rooms of the Year.

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”.

For 31 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).
