Reliable stop near Dalby Forest

At a glance

Bar menu
Open all year

On a wide ridge above wooded dales, the sound of steam trains may drift across pastures to this very traditional Yorkshire Inn near Pickering. The North York Moors Railway is just one of a string of attractions within easy reach of the limestone-built country pub. With beers sourced from nearby craft breweries and menu ingredients with a distinctly Yorkshire pedigree, the Wood brothers have an embarrassment of riches to offer their guests. Seasonally adjusted menus may offer Radford’s sirloin steak with home-made chips; or spinach and ricotta cannelonni as filling mains, topped off with a chocolate brownie.
