Visited for lunch today our first time after passing 100's of times! We were greeted by a warm and friendly waitress and whilst we hadn't booked were shown to a nice quiet table in the dining room. We were given details of the specials by our server Bronny who was very attentive despite it being quite busy, our drinks arrived... More

Visited with family for a lunch. The table service was attentive and left little to be desired. However, the food was lacking in quality. I had the beef burger; the burger was dry and over-cooked, the brioche roll was stale. Most bizarrely the chef decided to put a 3-4mm slice of red onion (literally a slice of whole onion) in...

We were here with a party of 13 on Saturday night 25th November. I must admit I wasn't looking forward to eating here due to some of the negative comments I have read, however I was pleasantly surprised by the good food and exceptional service. Our waitresses worked very hard to ensure everything went smoothly and nothing was too much... More

Great wine selection and varied menu. Food has always been good but the service is inconsistent and I've been known to wait for nearly an hour for my food to arrive

Convenient for business people to meet up from either Leeds, Bradford or Harrogate. Good menu, coffee or alcoholic drinks, spacious open area or smaller more intimate spaces - I've used it on many occasions for meetings. Give it a try if you haven't already discovered it!!

We live in the village of Pool in Wharfedale so often pop to this pub. Its got a great reputation and people travel long distances to enjoy the food and drink. The food is always well prepared and presented, a touch of class. The only downside is the beers as they have not bought in to the real ale culture... More

This was a first visit for a while, following a mediocre experience about a year ago. The service was excellent. Our waitress Judy handled all my food allergies and intolerances with sensitivity, suggesting options and checking with the chef. The food was excellent. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. But the service was brilliant. Well worth another visit.

My third visit in recent weeks, and yet again, a very enjoyable lunch served by attentive and friendly staff! Really nice interesting starters and substantial main courses and all against the background of a real fire! Lovely! I really do not recognise the comments made earlier this month (Absolute disgrace? - I absolutely think not!) and I shall certainly be... More

I regularly pop in here on the way home from being in the Yorkshire Dales on the way back to Leeds. It's a classy pub with a traditional feel. A real nice pub.
