Stayed here whilst visiting friends in the area. Comfy bed, quiet, even though overlooking square. Breakfast was great. Some minor niggles, handles missing on the wardrobe, and chest of drawers, but good value. Only had breakfast, so can't comment on food, needed to be back before pub closed as you need to go through bar to get to rooms. Friendly...

Three of us dined here and ordered mains each. One requested a small fish and chips as would not have been able to eat...

A comfortable bar with pleasant staff and management team, we were made to feel welcome. There is a diverse selection of customers and everyone seems to enjoy themselves. There is a well stocked bar which seems to...

We waited at least a half hour for our meal. We could hear a couple women in the kitchen chatting away. A couple...

This appears to be the best pub in leyburn, we were staying next door at a sub standard hotel which we subsequently left as soon as we met the landlord and landlady! A live band was playing, the beer was good, the regulars were friendly, the staff were amazing, the rooms were nice and the bacon had incredible hangover curing...

A warm welcome from friendly staff and management, the rooms were comfortable and the breakfasts were great, nothing was too much trouble. We had a lovely dinner in the bar on one evening and there was an excellent selection. There is a lift for the use of the more elderly guests and plenty of free parking outside the door, provided...

We planned a cycle trip around North Yorkshire and booked two rooms here. The staff were very helpful and explained about the meals available (i'm a vegetarian) and the arrangements for bikes. We confirmed the booking nearer the date and were told that one of our two single rooms had been upgraded at no extra cost to a double room,...
