A couple of pints of Yorkshire Moors went down very well yesterday as did the very tasty ox cheek and Porter pie. Largely silent couples at the neighbouring tables didn't help the atmosphere in the bar though.

Brewery Tap - open at 11:30am and filled with punters on a brewery tour by midday.

A couple of pints of their Yorkshire Classic went down well.

Ok but the beer wasn't that exciting - spent too much time pleasing dogs, not enough pleasing humans.

Great pub in a stunning location, beer (Cropton Brewery Tap) is superb along with the food. The service can get a little strained if busy but it is well worth it. My only other comment, it would be nice if they had a guest ale from somewhere to compliment their own range but on the whole an outstanding country pub

Country pub, that brews its' own beers, ranging from 3.6% to over 6%. Bottles can be bought to take away.
Tried a pint of the Amber (5%), not to my liking, bit of harsh taste. Next, a pint of IPA (5%), which |I would highly recommend. Then a pint of Blackout (5%), which was a stout with a strong but strange treacle flavour, unsure about this one, might have to go back and have another pint.
Place does food, the chips are possibly the best I've ever had in a pub.
Dog friendly. Only gets 8 out of 10, as too family friendly. If dogs have to be kept on leads, so should children.

Visited in the last week. Very impressed by the friendly welcome , range of beer and good food. Well done. We had sea food platter 22.95 for two, very nice. I thoroughly recommend this pub.

Lots of good things to say about this pub. Their own beers are top notch and the guests are interesting and well chosen, though on my visits staying in the village, lower gravity beers were less well represented. Service was helpful and quick. Lots of people (locals and trippers) come in for an early supper and then it becomes more of a straightforward pub. The menu is not adventurous but the quality was fine and one doesn't need every place to become a gastro-pub. The interior is typical country inn. 25 years since I was last there, but the standard has remained high.

Great pub with cracking ale and food. The ever changing selection of Cropton beers is complimented by the Morrissey Fox range and some crafted larger if that is more to your fancy.
The food is excellent and the portions massive (not sure why they have a sweet menu).
The greetings have always been welcoming (visited the pub half a dozen times over a five month period) and the use of oversize glasses ensures you get a full pint of top ale.
The many rooms ensure there is somewhere for everybody, and there is a pool table, dart board and TV.
Hope to be visiting again soon

Stayed 5 nights here and must say it is as close to a perfect pub as you could wish for. Good value, friendly, efficient staff, excellent food (love the breakfasts), and the beer is just to die for. The quality and range of beers is fantastic, I particularly loved the Blackout Porter, whilst my wife was taken with Yorkshire Moors. Would recommend this place to anyone.

Stayed one night at this lovely pub and wished I had time to stay longer. Beer brewed in the pub's own brewery next door was exceptional, especially the session beer Endeavour and the Uncle Sam which was a bit stronger. Bar staff were welcoming and the food was excellent (chips 10/10). For 40 b and b with beer like this, got to be the best deal I've had lately. Next time I'll be in the camp site next door so I can stay longer. Locals, by the way, were friendly enough and only grabbed the stool at the end of the bar ( and he was the brewer so I guess he's entitled.)

Give the place a break! Sure it's not a five-star tourist business but it's friendly (really, when you make the effort) and the beer is outstanding. If you want a sanitised tourist pub this is clearly not the place for you - but for an all-round back to basics beer and food pub where you can drink something that has literally only travelled from the bottom of the garden, give it a go!

Visited the pub recently whilst holidaying in the area. Really got the impression that they did not welcome tourists encroaching on the locals turf. Not very friendly and very mediocre beer. The place looks quite inviting from the outside but inside its pretty tired looking.

Late comment from August. Bought 4 of their Cropton beers to bottle and take away due to driving there.

Really enjoyed the whole experience, very informative tour of the brewery, excellent beer and food

Visited this lovely lookin place whilst staying at the nearby Cabins. Walked in to find the place swarming with kids, and a huge scary bloke monopolising the pool table. I thought we had walked into the pub in 'American Werewolf in London' with everyone turning round to look at us open mouthed as we entered. Everyone who was crowding the bar promptly turned around and dug themselves in by thier elbows. staedfastly refusing to move out of the way so i coud actually get to the bar for a drink. The barmaid did her best to pass our pints over the other punters, but they still they didn't move.
We sat drank our rather average beer whilst getting the evil eye from some creepy old bloke with a big dog. It was all we could do not to actually run back to the car.

I've never really rated this place, nor its ale either. Buying a few bottle of supposed Cropton beer from M&S recently was a big mistake. The beer was lousy, the cap had rust on its inside edge and I suspect the product was 'off'. Sounds like a place and product that might be trading on former glories and reputations past.

Whenever I've been here, and I used to live nearby, the ale has seemed to be a little problematic. Strange as it's their own beer! Far too many families, too.

Fab pub, great beers, but beware if you stay over. Rooms are rather expensive for what you get, and get in there quick for breakfast. The details for meal times were not prominent in our room (bfast - 8.45am-9.15am on a sunday!) We arrived 10 mins late and they only could manage dry toast and a cuppa!

Popped in saturday lunchtime had a pint of the local brew superb, excellent food, top chips, can't fault it
branwell - 23 Sep 2007 03:30
had a couple of meals here while we stayed nearby, the food is 1st class and would highly recommend it, and the beer is lovely. we had our two girls with us and this wasn't a problem, although you they won't allow children in the bar.

Excellent beer, excellent location (you only go if you know of the place and you like proper pubs) and a very good pub. Only gripe is that if you have kids, you have to sit in out of the way places.
redclanger - 1 Sep 2007 19:16
Forgot to mention that the beer goes by the name of Cropton Brewery.

Excellent place. First visited a few years ago while walking on the Moors, beautiful area, and fantastic pub. They serve wonderful food, home cooked, delicious and fantastic portions.
Add to this their fantastic Micro-brew beers and you have a winning formula. Brews own beer!!! The Brewery used to be in the cellar, but now as production has increased it is in a new building at the bottom of the garden. Try any of their beers and I am sure you will enjoy.
Also has pool table.
