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 to the place so had looked at menu on the website. Was looking forward to ordering 2 dishes in particular and so was very disappointed to discover that the current menu was not the same. My 2 dishes had disappeared!
We ended up ordering other dishes which were quite average. Nice place with a good ambience but they need to update the menu on their website when it changes to avoid potential disappointment.

Lovely food in a lovely setting. My only disappointment was that the fried chicken some pieces were on the bone. I think this should have been clearer on the menu.

Great experience. Staff were working very hard but remained calm, polite and helpful. Was really saddened to hear they were having to pay for spillages out of their tips, especially when the spillage was a consequence of working really hard to get a lot of drinks orders out in a timely fashion!

Beautiful setting and the food was lovely
The service was quite slow but they only had 1 person taking orders. He was very personable so it didn’t matter too much…he didn’t seem to have very capable staff.

Second visit to the Stone Trough. We went for lunch and were seated in the new conservatory (new to us) which has great views over the river valley in this lovely rural location. Service was prompt (althgough not very busy when we were there) and the food was excellent. All in all a great place to go. Also dog friendly.

Bit disappointed with our meals. Far too many chips especially with the crispy chicken which also had absolutely nothing else with it, definitely requires a salad garnish at least. Beautiful view but we were also cold. Expected to be inside. Unfortunately not somewhere I would go back to.

The food was lovely, the views are lovely.
What a shame like so many places they were short staffed.
The staff were curtious and apologetic and were obviously really busy.
Won’t stop me going again though

Wonderful extension which allows for outside dining, while protecting customers from the elements. Very friendly staff, seemed genuinely interested in making sure we were happy with our food choices. The fish pie was deliciously cheesy (and fishy!) and the very tasty mini kebabs starter was enough for a main course with an added side salad. The chicken in the Caesar salad was a touch dry. The presentation of all dishes was excellent.
Will definitely be back.

We always enjoy our meals here. This visit was different because of the Covid situation. The food excelled as always and Charlotte our waitress was everything you could wish for in a hostess. The greeting at reception was very congenial and a pleasant experience. We are very unlikely to ever stop visiting The Stone Trough as the standards never fall and the beer is always well kept. Food is always of a high quality and very well cooked.

Unfortunately the service was very slow. Had to wait for over 25 minutes before we had our drinks order taken. We ordered the food at the same time as we had had more than enough time to look at the menu.
The food was freshly cooked and was tasty.

This was our first time eating at The Stone Trough and it won’t be our last!!

I had the Sunday roast and I have never tasted beef as good!! (Believe me I like to eat out often!)

The children’s meals were delicious and to a high standard! Two course for £7! An absolute steal!

The adults menu had a great choice and not too overwhelming!! Three course for £18 or two courses for £16!!

We actually didn’t think the food would be of such a high standard when we saw the prices but believe me the prices didn’t reflect the quality of the food!

Such a relaxing atmosphere, lovely staff, all very welcoming!

We are looking forward to our next visit!

Thanks all!
