Fodor's Expert Review Shoulder of Mutton Inn
This cozy inn in an 18th-century building on the outskirts of an unspoiled country village is traditional but not fussy, with open fireplaces, original oak beams, and windows that look out to panoramic views of the Dales. The same satisfaction is in the food, which incorporates local ingredients whenever possible. Main courses include smoked haddock on a bed of crushed new potatoes and baked monkfish in a tomato, garlic, and ginger sauce, as well as traditional pub grub like homemade meat or fish pies or local sausage with mash. The craft beer selection is outstanding. The inn's six rooms are simple but comfortable. Just to confuse things, there's a Shoulder of Mutton pub in Middleton Tyas, also outside Richmond, that serves highly regarded pub food, and another one near Harrogate.
