please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Again there were (only) 6 or 7 beers on handpull throughout last week with many covered up. I wonder when (if) they ever have the full range of 16? Got to talk to the owners Sarah and Graham as we were staying in the village and they were friendly.

Supposedly sells 16 real ales but there were only about 6 (from 3 breweries) on sale last Friday with my pint of Theakston Best directly from the wood being excellent. However, there were no other visitors there and it closed at 7pm despite it being a Bank Holiday weekend which was a shame because the flagstone floor, Britannia tables, open fire and old pictures give the place a cosy atmosphere.

Whilst not quite as good as the Craven Arms just up the road, the New Inn is still a decent pub in its own right. It has an idyllic location and a reasonable selection of ales, plus a real cider. There's also an impressive bottled beer selection (mostly Belgian). Ales on were Black Sheep Best Bitter, Goose Eye Chinook Blonde, Idle Brewery Idle Dog & Tetleys Cask. The cider was Old Rosie. The pub offers accommodation. Unfortunately it was full last night and we had to stay elsewhere. Unbelievably, a bus stops outside too! £1 for a pack of crisps seemed a bit steep though.

The attraction of the pub was that it served food all day so we could eat straight after a walk. Amongst the available beers were Old Peculiar and Black Sheep. I try to avoid both of these but in this case I tried a Black Sheep which was much better than expected. The locally made Chinhook was OK but not to my taste. There was hand pulled strong cider (looked relatively clear) and a selection of bottled beers also available. Other reviews refer to the good presentation of the beer.
Food was quite acceptable and our group sampled the Steak + Ale Pie, the Game Pie and the lamb shank. The pies were a bit 'wet' with gravy and portions a little on the small size. Otherwise AOK and reasonably priced compared to many of the Dales pubs.
I'll certainly revisit and maybe sample the weekday walkers menu

I know that many people like the atmosphere of fun pubs where you are welcomed as along lost family member. As for me - I don't. This place serves probably the best pint of Theakstons Old Peculier I'v e had since my student days.Given that I'm now retired, that should tell you how good it is.
At the end of a seriously long 'two valleys' walk. the pint of OP was the holy grail that I enjoyed while 'she who must be obeyed' came to join me for a meal.
The food was served. If what you want is haute cuisine and Michelin stars , then don't come here.
If what you want is seriously tasty home cooked pub food with great beer to enjoy in peace then this is the place.
If the after life has pubs, then this should be the model they aim for - well for me at least.

Called into this pub at the weekend on a walk from Grassington. A dog friendly pub it serves Dalesman ale (although it had run out) Black Sheep and Tetleys, I sampled a pint of Tetley and it was OK but nothing special. To be honest ever since it left Leeds its not the real thing anymore... the pub had a lovely real fire on the go, it had the racing on and then the rugby which was good... on the downside the bloke behind the bar was quite miserable... they were serving food which smelled and looked good... overall its a decent pub which could do with maybe one more real ale instead of the Black Sheep.... the pub also appeared to have rooms for rent...

Just come across this lovely pub. If you like a proper pub it is a must. Great local beer (Dalesman I think). Nice freshly prepared food and friendly chatty landlord.
The pub has a livery for mountain bikes, so is a must for the two-wheelers and also very welcoming to dogs and walkers.
Can't fault this in any way 10/10.

If you like pubs with large screen TVs and wall to wall music you will hate this place. Its everything you could wish for in the Yorkshire Dales surroundings with probably the best looked after beers I've had for many a year.

Try a pint of the Old Peculier and see how many memories are brought to mind.

Genuinely traditional boozer in this pleasant village. As opposed to 'tired and shabby', I'd probably call it more rustic, with a separate entrance corridor leading to two rooms. the large bar to the right and a smaller lounge to the left. Both rooms have real fires and are traditionally furnished, with exposed brickwork in many of the places. It was packed full of regulars and the lack of any piped music made for a timeless feel, and a pleasant deviation from the usual upmarket country 'pub'.
Beers on my visit were all from the Daleside brewey, and all tried were in good form. Food was good and reasonably priced.
Would recommend a visit here and would return.

Excellent choice of Belgian and German beer in bottles, and a good selection of real ale. Friendly staff.
The interior is tired and shabby and in need of some updating though. There's tables outside the front and a terrace over the road. A very decent cyclists pub.

Probably the best pint of Teakstons Old Peculier I've ever had.

Called in at lunchtime on a very rainy December day with wet snow lying on the nearby hills. Made very welcome. Excellent guest beer from the Daleside brewery [pub is a favourite with local CAMRA apparently]. Great photos in the corridor by the loos of mountain biking on the Coast to Coast in thick snow in Feb, and the pub advertises a warm welcome to "activities" ie bikers, walkers, horse riders. I would go back by choice asap. Food being served looked good too.

We visited mid-week at 8.30 to be told that there was no more cooking (stopped at 8pm). We had a good pint of Daleside (I think - local brew, anyway), then left. I wish the pleasant new managers luck - but up the road the Craven Arms were still serving good food and ale in front of warm log fires. Draw your own conclusions as to where we went!

Good value food. Lots of beer choice. Poplar with cyclists
