We would like to thank everyone for their ongoing support over the past year. We have temporarily closed our doors in order to get ready for reopening the bakery, takeaway and the Beer garden the first week of May.

If you have a table booked before this date, sadly this will not be able to go ahead.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page as we will try our best to keep you updated on there.

We are actively taking bookings for the B&B and the restaurant (Via email, telephone and the website) for dates after the 19th May when we plan to reopen our doors for the pub, restaurant and B&B (Don’t panic, the bakery and takeaways will continue but will be served from indoors!

Again if you have a bedroom booked before this date, unfortunately this will not be able to go ahead and we will be in touch.

In the meantime we hope you all keep well and hope to see you all again very soon.

Keep safe.

Thank You to all of our Customers!

A huge thank you to all our customers who have taken the time to review us on Trip Advisor. We really appreciate your ongoing support and welcome your feedback!

Sunday Lunch

Run by a family from Brittany and it shows in the excellent quality country cooking, perfect balance between quality, portion size and price. Chef’s special game pie £11.95 more filling than it looks – great flavours, roast dinner not overly ladden with food, but very tender lamb, veg and gravy. The Brittany crepes are excellent value, thin cooked perfectly with attention to detail all for £5.25. Very attentive waitress, and prompt service.

Lovely Food With A Garlic Twist

The food was quite brilliant and had a french twist to some of the dishes. Not to be missed!. We visited twice whilst on a break in the “Dales” and on both occasions had brilliant meals. The menu as in the title above gives a clue to the country of origin of the chef.

Our restaurant has a reputation as one of the best dining experiences in the Yorkshire Dales serving quality, hearty French food.

Austwick, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park is an ideal base to explore the countryside. Ideal for walking, cycling, caving, running and fishing enthusiasts.

We have a selection of local photography, framed and mounted available to buy. Come in and see this beautiful artwork in our bar and restaurant.

We have 5 luxurious en-suite rooms that have recently been refurbished to a very high standard. All available on a B&B basis
