This was one of the most delightful surprises of our visit to Yorkshire. A restaurant of London standards in the middle of the Dales. The food was great, the service friendly and quick and thankfully a fraction of London prices. It was a little cold but then so was the weather outside and I could have done with the music... More

Sometimes, I find small restaurants a bit claustrophobic and stressful, but not Thirteen. There was the pleasant buzz of other diners, but the tables didn't feel on top of each other; and we felt beautifully attended to, without being asked 'Everything ok for you?' every few seconds. The food looked good, and tasted delicious. The menu offers great choices for... More

Although they were fully booked later in the evening, they fitted me in early. I had just the special - venison loin with beetroot barley, roasted chantenay carrot, cavolo Nero and a red wine jus. It was perfectly cooked and delicious, with a glass of house red, and the service was friendly but unobtrusive. A perfect choice all round.

We visited this lovely restaurant on two evenings during our recent visit to Leyburn. We have been fortunate to eat at this fantastic restaurant on previous occasions and once again we were not disappointed. The quality of the food is first class and we both had different mains on both evenings - hard to choose a favourite! The cheese board... More

We visited with our daughter and her 3yr old twins. Our meals were excellent and the chef specially prepared suitable meals for the children. This has become a favorite place for us when visiting the Yorkshire Dales. I would not hesitate in recommending this to everyone, but booking is recommended for this intimate dining experience.

Looking for somewhere nice to have lunch on our first day of a week's break in Leyburn. We elected to have the set price 3 course lunch. The service was excellent and the atmosphere relaxed and friendly. The food was gorgeous both in taste and presentation.I would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.
