A welcoming village pub between the Howardian Hills and the North Yorkshire Moors near the bustling market town of Malton. Enjoy a pint of Marston’s EPA with the locals in the lively lounge bar, separated from the dining room – once the village post office – by a double-sided log-burner. Chef-proprietor Adam Myers has gained an enviable reputation in Ryedale for his chargrilled steaks, but other hearty options are fillet of pork stuffed with black pudding, potato and apple rösti, wild mushroom jus; pan-fried calves' liver on mash with red wine gravy; and tomato, pesto and Wensleydale tart and rocket salad. Desserts are no less tempting – sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce and vanilla ice cream.
