A beautifully updated stone pub in the Yorkshire countryside with 12 very stylish bedrooms. The original bar and pretty dining room have been transformed and extended with the addition of a relaxed courtyard and two private dining rooms. A sliding glass roof, wood-clad walls, wicker chairs and jolly blankets give the whole space a modern breezy style.
Food is freshly prepared and beautifully presented. Begin your day with a brilliant breakfast and from noon enjoy an excellent choice of starters, mains and desserts. Little diners can choose from their own menu and there’s a good selection of light bites if you are short of time.
Drop into the free-to-visit Spofforth Castle while you’re in the area. Once the family seat of William Percy, a close associate of William the Conqueror, this is reputedly where rebel barons drew up the Magna Carta.
