We are staying at the Holme Grange farm across the road so the pub was an ideal location for dinner with the kids. We were able to get a table for 4 no problem. The quality and taste of all dishes was top notch and the kids puddings were great. Well kept beer as well to top it off. Very... More

Delicious food and a lovely relaxed atmosphere with log fires. Just what we needed after an hours walk in the rain & mirk. The only problem was that we had to leave to go home!

Up north again and called in at the Galphay Inn for Sunday lunch. They are doing individual roasts and I had a lovely piece of beef cooked pink served with good roast potatoes, freshly cooked vegetables and a good size Yorkshire pudding.
