“Fresh fish in the middle of The Dales!” – the unlikely hero at this “wonderful” and “quirky” village restaurant-with-rooms, be it “fish and chips to die for” or the lunchtime prawn sandwiches (“feels like you are eating an ocean’s worth”). Add in a “the warmest Yorkshire welcome imaginable” and it “has it all”.

This family-run village restaurant-with-rooms wins consistent ratings for its “lovely food”, including (despite its distinctly beefy name) a menu of “super fish” specialities.

“Excellent battered fish that’s as light as a feather” stars at this foodie-friendly village pub-with-rooms, curiously known for its seafood, despite its decidedly non-coastal location: “that it has a daunting menu doesn’t dilute the quality”.

“An aquatic food oasis some 80 miles from the sea!” “If you can’t get to the Yorkshire coast this little gem is a worthy substitute”“a relaxed and friendly” village pub (with rooms). It can feel “crammed in” and one or two doubters find it “decidedly average”, but most reports are full of praise for its “exciting and creative” cooking, notably of fish.
