Fodor's Review

The peaceful rural location of this "restaurant with rooms" in the scenic Nidderdale valley belies the sophistication of its distinctive cooking, which has been consistently rated as one of the top five dining spots not only in Yorkshire, but in the UK. It won its Michelin star with an emphasis on seasonal ingredients, creative combinations of flavors, and elegant presentations, as in appetizers like seared tuna with squid and chorizo, and pheasant with pomegranate and date. Main courses might include a saddle of venison with oxtail in a sloe gin and cherry sauce, or a wild sea bass with tomato, saffron, and shrimp gnocchi. The dessert selection is fabulous, so save room. The dinner menu is pricey, but the set menu at lunch (£40) is a good value. The restaurant is housed in a building that is partially medieval, dating to the 11th century (the monks of nearby Fountains Abbey made cheese in the cellar), and partially an 18th-century coaching inn. The 11 rooms are spacious and charming, four are modern courtyard rooms, and prices start at £172, which includes dinner and breakfast.
