We stopped in here for something to eat on a cold and quiet January Saturday night. We were a party of two gay ladies and our Sri Lankan friend plus a dog and had a very uncomfortable and awkward meal...it's a long time since I have felt so uncomfortable! I almost wanted to stand up and say I was almost...

So disappointed, we've visited Goathland many times but never popped into the Hotel for a drink. We called in to have a coffee, but only had about £1 in change, they do take card but minimum spend was £20!!!!! Absolutely ridiculous in this day and age to have a minimum spend so high, had it been £7 or £8 we'd...

The actual pub is lovely, but the Owners are a disgrace and need replacing. Zero personality, no interaction with customers whatsoever. Cheap overseas employees dressed in something resembling a school uniform, with no people skills or enthusiasm whatsoever. When you have been in a number of times as I have recently, you sense the shocking atmoshere. Never open in the...

My family and I visited the Goathland hotel to celebrate my mums 70th birthday. There were 13 in our group, including 2 children and 3 dogs. The staff made us feel very welcome and were very friendly and accommodating. They were even happy to let me leave some decorations to surprise my mum. I cannot thank them enough for making...

Had great expectations of this hotel, not impressed, not child friendly. Asked to go the family area, nothing in there for the children. Eventually went upstairs to the TV ROOM, some old board games, cards and old books, chess board.. Grandson said he didn't feel welcome in the hotel as the they were always served their food last. Grand daughter...

We assume the hotel trades on the fact that most diners are passing through only once. While the family room was decent and the ploughman's lunch sported a good chunk of Stilton, the children's meals and scampi and chips were tiny. Just a few nuggets of scampi and chicken, not many more chips and no sides or salad garnish. Everything...

We popped in here for a drink initially, we were two families with 4 children and 2 dogs between us. We were quickly told about the code of conduct for dogs as soon as we got through the door and given a card with them on and straight after that another staff member told us again and gave us the...

Disappointing to be given vegetables which were substandard, our new potatoes were anything but new, in fact they were old, hard & green. The rest of the veg (carrots) were poor tasteless and frozen. When you pay nearly £9 per head for a simple pie and veg, I can't see how you could go so wrong. It feels like they...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to our traditional local pub and hotel. We have become world famous by sheer accident but for the very reasons Yorkshire Television chose us we like to think that the very best of an English village pub has been delivered to an international audience. Our belief is that many come because of the fictional Aidensfield but return for the spirit that is Goathland. Essentially we offer the convenience of a small hotel but with a big personality. The hotel has eight en-suite bedrooms; they all have individual characteristics and views of our wonderful moors and timeless village. Our rooms reflect the traditional building and retain all the charm and character of yesteryear. The rooms are all fully equipped with 32" LCD Televisions with Freeview, Tea, Coffee and Hot Chocolate making facilities and of course all fresh white linens. ... more   less
