This place won't be winning any prizes for its décor or rooms, but it could for its staff. Friendly, welcoming and helpful. The room was adequate; tired and a little small, but comfortable bed and plenty of hot water. The pub itself is traditional style, apart from the TVs! The food was great, I ate from the Light bite menu...

Staying locally elsewhere for our walking weekend, we were advised that this was the place to be in Grassington on a Saturday night. The band were great (especially the sax), the staff were brilliant and the locals REALLY know how to have a good time! Great fun - thank you!

We had a great time, every member of staff was really friendly. Beware those staying here and going to Wharfedale Rugby club, there is a lack of taxis in the area and it's about 2 miles to the club from here, and it's up hill on the way back. Thankfully the landlady, Rita, offered to give us a lift over...

I would agree with Maggie C in her review. The positives are the staff, the eggs at breakfast and the location. Everything else is poor. Our room was tiny, grubby and dilapidated especially the bathroom. Carpets are worn and dirty and everywhere needs redecorating. We were on the top floor and couldn't get any hot water. It's all done on...

Popped in for light lunch, we all had home roast pork/ham sandwich and home cooked chips, it was fantastic and good value, it was the 40s weekend and even though the staff were very busy Gentle was super nice, helpful and friendly, well worth a visit

My husband wanted to watch a football match while having a drink and although there was another major football match on in another part of the bar, the staff went out of their way to set up another television for my husband (and one other individual) to watch. I did not want to watch the match or have an alcoholic...

We called in on July 12th for a bar lunch. The pub was quiet (it was only about 1230) and the staff were cheerful and welcoming. We ordered our food, a tomato soup and a tuna sandwich for my wife and a fish pie with vegetables for me. The food was quite disappointing: the soup was good (though it was...

Situated on Grassington Main Street this pub provides excellent food at a reasonable price and, in my opinion, is rather better value for money than the No. 5 close by. I was able to book on-line via email and received a prompt reply. We went on a Friday evening and the restaurant was fairly full so booking in advance is...

We stayed in The Black Horse Hotel for the weekend but ate here on the Friday evening. The pub staff are all very welcoming and the food was fantastic. We ate in the restaurant part of the pub and found the menu and food choices to be way in excess of normal pub food. Starters we had were flat mushrooms...
