“Honest Yorkshire portions of high-quality local ingredients” set the tone at this remote seventeenth-century inn near Pateley Bridge, run by Ray & June Carter for more than 30 years. They serve copious amounts of game shot in the immediate area, and have fishing rights on the River Nidd. The décor either “needs a refresh” or is delightfully old-fashioned, according to your taste.

This remote 17th-century inn near Pateley Bridge has been run along traditional lines by Ray & Jane Carter for more than 30 years. The “sensible down-to earth-cooking” – notable for an abundance of game, often shot within a mile – is “cracking good value” (but “book a long time ahead”).

In its gorgeous, remote setting, this country pub has been a consistent culinary destination for many-a-year now. Its old-fashioned style can seem “austere” (to more modern tastes “some pubs handle the ‘pub-setting-but-posh-food’ thing better than this”) but all agree the food is “well-above-average”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
