Built in 1631, this white-painted coaching inn is right in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. For a morning coffee, head for the Whisky Lounge, where you can indeed also enjoy a malt whisky, or a pint of Heifer Gold or Black Sheep real ale, if you prefer. Of the two dining areas the Fish Bar, with sea-grass flooring, wooden tables and rattan chairs, is the less formal, while the restaurant, which leads to the garden, is furnished with chocolate leather chairs and linen table cloths, and decorated with distinctive artworks by international artist, Doug Hyde. Whichever room you choose, the food is AA-Rosette quality; start with smoked salmon and horseradish bisque with ciabatta croutons; continue with herb crusted hake fillet, chorizo, tomato and parmesan risotto with crispy shallots and herb oil; or roast Nidderdale lamb rump, pesto mash, crushed summer peas and dorati tomato. There are whole pages of choice for both vegetarians and vegans, and well as a lobster menu, a grill room menu and a fine choice of tapas and sandwiches.
