A warm, friendly welcome set the scene for the whole stay. The staff were all outstanding in their roles. The servers were knowledgeable about the food and drink and courteous at every point. The food was excellent. All cooked fresh to order. Minestrone soup full of vegetables and herby. One of the best steak and mushroom pies I've ever eaten...

Visited on 8th October for our 50th anniversary dinner, with 10 of our friends. Previously booked our table in The Garden Room. Bearing in mind it was a Saturday evening and the hotel was extremely busy. We were greeted by a member of staff who invited us to the table. From start to finish it was an extremely happy evening....

I'd been hiking throughout the Yorkshire Dales and stayed in 8 other excellent inns or guesthouses. It was a delight to end my trip at the Wheatley Arms in Ben Rhydding which turned out to be my favorite overall. The bed/bath were very nice and it was certainly convenient to have off-street parking (I had a car at that point)...

We are relatively local and have visited quite a few times now. Lovely food, great wine list, fabulous surroundings, lovely garden, children's menu is great too I just find the service isn't as good as it should be. From slow service to just plain rudeness... Could be brilliant.... Sort it out guys!! 😃

We arrived and shown to our table for 8, we were offered drinks & menu's which arrived and then the drinks arrived and...

Seven of us here Sat evening. I had menu said steak and mushroom pie £13. Should have been called potato,carrot,mushroom and steak pie. It was a little taller than a normal pork pie with very few small pieces of meat in it. And £13. Served with mash and a single whole carrot with green leaves under the pie. If you...

This was third time eaten there. It's gone a little down hill. Food and service now no more than average. Don't think we will be back. Menu not as exciting and the quality just wasn't there. Disappointed as first visits were much much better.
