Our food:
Breakfast, packed lunches and dinner

We believe in giving our guests the opportunity to taste and enjoy the very best that the region can provide. Therefore, we prepare all of our food from fresh ingredients sourced from local suppliers and producers and our own garden when in season. Some of the local producers have won regional and national awards for their produce.

We have an extensive breakfast menu, that features award-winning black pudding and Wensleydale Sausages, locally cured bacon and homemade bread and preserves. The eggs are from our own chickens.

For lunch we can prepare a packed lunch to fit in your rucksack.

Finally, for guests who have booked directly with us we can provide an evening meal (except on Saturday nights). We have a selection of 3 course menus including vegetarian and non-vegetarian choices (and vegan/gluten free on request). We will prepare and agree a menu with you prior to your arrival.

The cost is £8.00 per person.

For guests who have booked directly with us, we offer a 3-course meal. We offer evening meals on Sunday to Friday inclusive, but not on Saturdays. We normally serve dinner at 7.00pm. We are not licensed, but you are more than welcome to bring your own wine and other drinks. There is a fridge, wine glasses and a cork screw in each room.

We do need to know at least 48 hours before your arrival if you would like an evening meal on your first night and then at breakfast on subsequent days. As with all our food it is freshly prepared and we do need a little time to source the ingredients and prepare the dishes.

We will prepare and agree a menu with you prior to your arrival.

The evening meals are £30.00 per person
