My partner was served macoroni cheese which was a bowl of steaming cheesy liquid. When I queried this with the Manageress, she immediately took offence and questioned us saying "It is our most popular dish" ie get our your bike and you will eat it even though inedible. I persisted and pointed out that any dish which has a knife... More

Nice pub but i personally thought it everything was overpriced right from weather it's a pint or bag of nuts n more and i thought the staff was unfriendly,maybe most people are passing trade,it's a shame as it could be a nice oldy world pub.

Stayed here for 2 nights, bed and breakfast. The staff and the management couldn't have been friendlier. Breakfast was excellent as was the pub food. The room was more than adequate, tastefully decorated and clean. Tea, coffee and biscuits were plentiful.

The first time we visited the Goathland Hotel was a number of years ago - pre child. We had a drink in the bar just for the sake of having a drink in the 'Aidensfield Arms'. We returned over half term with our 5 year old son and were made to feel as welcome as a smelly sock, being banished... More

The NYMR and Heatbeat seem to give this hotel an easy ride and it does not have to be as consistent as it would without such advantage, unless you are a TV fan probably not worth a visit as there are many other options in the area which have to work harder.

Bedrooms where old fashioned and run down but not in a charming rustic way just in a OMG let's just go home way! The kettle was older than me!! The bed was as hard as a stone! The carpet was threadbare! The staff were Polite but not exactly friendly and that's the nicest thing I can say about this Hotel.... More

Just spent a great weekend in goathland let down badly by this pub ! The attitude of the family owners stank they are just not trying in my opinion in terms of service and their attitude not only to our group but the vast majority of customers that came through the door. We gave up on it on Saturday dinner... More
