We are ‘An all-season pub’, warming fires in the winter and relaxing in the garden through the summer months. On Sundays you’d think the whole of Yorkshire had descend on the pub. Sundays are something of an institution, it’s the busiest day of the week, with Roast Dinners taking the centre stage

We pride our self on being accessible, whilst dishes on the main menu can cost from £14.00 to £20.00, there's a delicious take on pub classics that cost around the £10.00 mark, packed with drinkers and eaters alike.
Up in the Restaurant there is a more subtle affair, serving plates of food designed to reflect the wonderful local produce. We aim to combine the traditional local pub with a a top-notch dining destination. A melting pot of local’s who want to avoid the chore of cooking, alongside those looking to have a blow out meal celebrating all sorts of events.
Most importantly dogs & muddy boots welcome!

First Visit was Christmas Eve - what a way to start Christmas.
Fabulous food, friendly staff and a great cosy atmosphere.
It won’t be the last visit - that’s for sure.
Thank you so much

Lovely meal on Christmas Eve with the family. Food was gorgeous, and generous servings too.
All very Covid-secure, no issues there.
Good ambiance - liked the log fires in every room. Would like to come back again one day when we’re in the area.

Friendly warm welcome. Covid safe.
Stunning food. Cosy, characterful gastro pub. We went with 2 young boys and it was perfect! Child friendly, dog friendly. Best table tip - ask for the one in the bar by the fire.

Food was lovely, apart from ran out of mash,greens and puddings and was middle of afternoon.
Must admit I enjoyed the food more the last time I went.
Service was a bit slow after mains came,I know it’s hard with table service now and social distancing , but tidied table next to us and never asked us if we wanted a pudding or another drink,even though we’d finished, in end we asked a member of staff

What a fantastic location next to Kirkham Priory, Wolds, beautiful river and good reviews.
Unfortunately our visit was awful; could my wife cook better?.. definitely
I actually think I could... white frozen baguette, very little balsamic in the oil dip, minute fish cakes, bought-in pie, under-cooked single carrot, watery gravy as there was obviously no actual fresh meat in the kitchen, frozen chips with fried chicken plus poor greenslaw.
We did complain and received an apology... foolishly paid full bill caught off guard when no reduction was offered.
Overall day spoilt by this recommended pub(God knows why).
As my wife said would the owners have been happy with a meal like? I dread to think what their reply would be.
Take my advice give up and let someone else more deserving run it.
It could and should be a showpiece pub in the area. Why didn't we just go to Westoe or Burythorpe instead.

Lovely pub and good food. Wasn’t a problem arriving late due to traffic delays ( we were travelling some distance). Excellent Covid measures.
Would only suggest specific directions on the website as for non locals it was a little challenging to find based on the address on the website!

Traditional stone built inn within 200 metres of Kirkham Abbey. Excellent food, friendly and helpful staff in a relaxed atmosphere. Varied menu. Good variety of gins if you are into that sort of thing, some of which are produced locally.

We booked online on the drive home from a trip to the coast. What a beautiful setting with a lovely view. The staff were extremely helpful and prompt. We sat outside for a drink then moved inside for food. A very cosy, dog friendly pub and the food was tremendous. Definitely the best pub fish and chips I have ever had - so delicious. My boyfriend had the fried chicken in a basket which was piping hot and very good! We will be back.

The menu on the website is very different from the actual menu. Very limited with burgers mainly and no fresh fish or meat dishes other than steak. The time waiting outside was extended even though we had booked and were the only ones waiting. The time to order drinks and food was about 30 min wait. The dining room was very flat and others complained about the dining room.
Very disappointing overall.
