Built in the 18th century, this beautiful coaching inn in the centre of Ripon is an ideal base for exploring nearby Harrogate and York. Well-kept local cask ales from Timothy Taylor and Saltaire breweries can be enjoyed in the bar, as well as wines from a carefully chosen list. Sandwiches and ‘pub classics’ appear on the menu alongside local steaks and signature dishes such as pheasant en croûte with potato gratin; sticky Ripon beef; and crispy skinned sea trout with Whitby crab cake.
