We have the executive room. It has a grotty shower, the wash basin in the bedroom, and a waterbed (?). It costs £70 – the same as the wonderful King William last night. But then I look out the window and see the hills and the viaduct and, yes really, it is worth every penny.
It is such an amazing evening. Clear blue skies and warm sun. I don’t imagine they have many of these evenings right up here. We sit in the garden overlooking that view – no-one else around. Special.
Food wise the pub does proper Yorkshire food (although technically we are in Cumbria). All there pork products come from local rare breed pigs – but they have run out of sausage and mash. I went instead for pie and chips- served with gravy of course. Big, tasty and just what’s needed.
