Beside Roecliffe’s neatly trimmed green, this handsome 16th-century former coaching inn has been put well and truly on the map by owners Karl and Amanda. The couple have worked wonders on the striking green-painted pub, which has been lovingly restored. Stone-flagged floors, oak beams and crackling log fires feature prominently in the civilised bar and dining rooms. Children and dogs are welcome, and food and drink can be served in the garden during the summer months. The bar’s beer handles tempt with some top Yorkshire brewers (Timothy Taylor, Theakston, Ilkley), but it’s the wine list that may catch the eye – 20 pages long and a comprehensive choice of 30 sold by the glass. The two AA Rosettes are well deserved for the pub’s fine preparation of fresh and local produce, from salads and vegetables to farm meats and game, in a clearly focused modern British menu. Crown Inn classics are a strong indicator of the pub’s commitment to provenance and seasonality. Four beautiful en suite bedrooms are furnished to a high specification, including solid mahogany sleigh beds and free-standing baths.
