Great pub!
This is a lovely pub in a quiet village - stayed for two nights but purpose of visit was a family visit to Whitby so didn't explore the local area too much. My room was comfortable and very clean. The icing on the cake though was the food ..... brilliant cooked breakfast on both mornings, served hot and fresh from the kitchen. Both evening meals were also very good and the Rioja was excellent.
