All was lovely apart from having three dogs in the dining room. One was on the seat and another put it's paws on the table and was getting in the way of the staff. Only one sat under the table.

The appetiser was missed. Great Ribs, greasy fish batter. The ravioli was very tasty however just warm. The restaurant was very busy and service quite slow. Friendly and gracious staff.

Was put in the horsebox and as it was a beautiful day felt a little cut off. Soup cold, mains came out too quickly before starters has been cleared away. Food mediocre to be honest. Won’t rush back.

The spofforth in is everything we are looking for, a lovely, beautiful pub country which welcomes dogs and are so disappointed that it seems completely incapable as functioning as a restaurant. Every single time we have been which is several, the service is appallingly slow, the food is always wrong. Last visit it took one hour 45 mins for a horrible dry cesear salad. We were offered a complimentary round of drinks as an apology - which took 20 minutes to come. The restaurant was not full and it was busy as a pib should expect and cater for on an Easter weekend. It’s just appallingly run and just not good enough. It’s the end of a brilliant dog walk wetherby to spoffarth and I would love this to be a good pub, but it has continuously proved to be dreadful. This weekend was it’s last chance and as per it it spectacularly rose to the occasion to proven itself rubbish.

There was very little choice in the menu. My food was cool. They had run out of various items. The prices were high. We are a group of ladies who have eaten together regularly for 10 years, this was our worst experience ever.

Undercooked fish (soggy batter) with overcooked chips - how on earth can you get such a basic dish so wrong?
