Lunchtime we serve pub classics from 12:00 noon with the kitchen closing at 2:30pm. Our pub classics are aimed at walkers and passing by trade in need of a hearty meal. Everything is homemade, chef makes the bread, pastry, ice cream, sauces, everything from scratch. Nothing is shop bought or frozen.

We source all our products locally and all deliveries are daily. Our aim is to serve you food from our kitchen which is as fresh as possible.



Imagine being seated in our four hundred year old inn which exudes rustic charm, enjoy our traditional gastronomic food with a French influence as the fires licks under candle light.

Head Chef Daniel Rostron has composed our a la carte evening menu, which is carefully refined choosing Yorkshire’s produce and seasonal ingredients. Each dish balances flavours which complement our thoughtfully chosen wine list.

We serve from 6:00pm until 8:30pm and residents are welcome to dine at their leisure, dinner service is an adult environment only. We do not turn tables which means you have your table all evening.
