Called in for a drink, and wasn't disappointed. Good choice of beer, as would be expected, and good value wine. Next time perhaps we'll come for a meal, too. Only criticism as it wasn't well lit outside; it was well hidden and it would have been easy to trip in the dark

Stopped in for lunch on Sunday as I remember this pub as being super friendly, to people and dogs..., and catering for a gluten free vegetarian. Not disappointed 😃. Food was superb and the Sunday lunch modified to make it perfect for my requirements. As ever my pup loved her visit.

I thoroughly recommend this glorious establishment.....and the... More

After a few beers at the Theakston and Black Sheep visitor centres we finished with a meal here. Service was excellent, especially given how many of us there were. I had a perfectly cooked steak, everyone seemed to enjoy their meals.

Sandwiches on the Lunch menu are seriously huge and gorgeous, as my four dining partners can testify. The dust breast from the specials board was also amazing. I tried the real ale the night before and this is also perfect, as it should be being about 400 yards from the Theakstons Brewery.
