My husband and I visited The Clousden Hill recently and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was excellent, the manageress served us and was so friendly, helpful and attentive. The atmosphere was very nice and relaxing and the food was excellent, I am somewhat on the short side and was over the moon when I was advised small portions could be served definitely on our list for a return visit.

Lovely pub, lovely food but felt a little uncomfortable as the chef and bar staff were arguing in the bar area about being too busy and wanting to stop food orders. We had booked a table for food so lucky enough they accepted our order as the last one but it all seemed a little manic and unorganised.

We arrived and they didn't have our booking. Then we were told we could have a table but food would be 45 mins. Very abrupt. After a long shift for me and my husband we decided not to stay. Very disappointing

Very well organised and table was huge and well separated from others. Impressed with sanitisers on entering. Service was excellent apart from apart a 25 minute wait between starters and mains and 11 yr old was getting difficult and impatient. Friendly staff.
Meal was tasty and childen happy. Good value with eat out help out scheme.

Great homemade food, good to see fresh vegetables used and not from frozen like other establishment's. Great friendly service, always with a smile. My only gripe was the music volume level. Would recommend and definitely go back.

I had cod and chips which can be variable across pubs but this was the smallest portion of fish I’ve seen since I last had whitebait. The best would be the Black Swan in Leyburn where, for a quid more, your cod will be hanging off the plate.

The noise from the jukebox made it difficult to hear the other people on my table and why do live acts imagine a compact room in a pub justifies O2 Arena sound levels?

Very disappointing. We arrived 5 minutes late for a 530pm booking which clearly is our error. However, most places have a 15 minute grace period these days. Unfortunately, everything else was the establishment’s error. We were greeted with “ we thought you weren’t coming we will need to clear this tabl” as there were people sitting at it. “You’ll have to order straight away as the chefs are leaving at 6pm.” It later transpired that they had intended to close off last orders for food at 4pm on the day via Open Table which they had just become members of. However, they had not done this. Bearing in mind I booked this on 15th December, they could have called me ( mobile number and email address given)to highlight their mistake and we could have changed our booking to 4 pm or booked a different restaurant. Instead, we ended up feeling very embarrassed for something that was clearly not our mistake. Coupled with this, two members of the party ordered fish and chips which was inedible. The batter had clearly been recooked and the small amount of fish inside was dry and unpleasant. To be fair, both dishes were removed from our bill without argument. Not a great experience.
