    Absolutely fantastic lunch! Booked for a college reunion, 6 of us in total & The Inn provided the best place to make it all happen. Everything went perfectly from start to finish. The food & drink are wonderful, great value & to an excellent standard; but the venue just made it. The decor & ambience of the place is lovely but most importantly ALL the staff were brilliant. I found this gem of a place by accident a few weeks earlier on a cold, wet Monday lunchtime & on the strength of our fab time then, rebooked. I just need to persuade my Partner our next mission is to reccie the rooms with an overnight stay 😉

    We ate here last week for my dad’s birthday & it was a perfect ’quieter table’, with great service & food & we really enjoyed the whole experience! I’d definitely recommend & eat here again when in Yorkshire.

    Booked via Open Table in the afternoon for reservation at 7pm. The table was nicely situated and the young waiting staff were polite and helpful. The food, when it came, was very good and attractively presented. Unfortunately we had to wait an hour between ordering our main courses (we didn't have starters) and the arrival of the food. Other diners were in a similar position, and no word of explanation or apology was given to us. Short staffing in the kitchen combined with the number of bookings at the same time seemed to be the reason. Hope that this was a one-off failure of service, as there are positives to the venue including menu choice and food quality.

    Very quiet with attentive staff, but was early evening and the chips with the fish and chips tasted like they had been leftover from the lunchtime menu and no sauces or condiments offered Would visit again but for the price would be sending the food back if it was presented the same

    Whilst the food was excellent when it arrived, delivery of it was extremely slow. We were a table of 6 and it took an hour for two starter portions of warm bread to arrive and a further hour for main courses. We were also sat in a section of the restaurant near a staff door which was in constant use and auto slammed shut after every use.

    Great food had by all, we loved the king prawn and swordfish skewers with salad and flatbread but would suggest they didn’t put it on top of the flatbread as it makes it soggy, pie and lemon sole was delicious, we also all had queen scallops to start which were lovely.

    Our order was taken we assume to another table, however we were chatting and didn’t realise until one of the managers came to check on us, they quickly rectified it and brought out immediately. They gave a complementary drink and a small discount for the error which is brilliant level of customer service. We weee not bothered as we enjoyed the meal and dessert so much! However was a lovely touch. Beyond attentive service and great setting!

    Professional and polite staff who provided excellent service, together with a lovely Sunday lunch at a sensible price. I will definitely be going again.

    We've eaten here a few times and it been fantastic, so I'm reluctant to write a bad review. Maybe I should of said something at the time, but I had guests with me so didnt want an issue. Waited 40 mins for the order to arrive, ordered sausage and mash with gravy and peas, got chips and beans? My son's hotdog bread was inedible, it wouldn't even snap in half. My soup as slimey and tasteless. I didn't eat it. The double cooked chips were dry. The burger had the edges cut off so I'm guessing it got burnt. Really disappointing, will come back and try again thought as we have had good meals there. Maybe the regular chef was off?

    Thank you so very much for your review following your recent visit it us - I was indeed very sorry to read your recent comments regarding a wait for food and a number of dishes not up to our usual high standard, as you have experience with us before this is certainly not the level of service or food we would usually deliver. I have discussed your feedback with the senior team who also send their sincere apologies. I would ask that you contact myself personally if you are to plan a return visit so I can ensure you have an exceptional experience as before. We really look forward to welcoming you back to The Inn South Stainley in the future. Kind regards Graham Usher Managing Director
