One of the ladies who looked after us was very professional but rather unfriendly. She needs to be coached that rushing people straight into the dining room on arrival creates a bad impression, as does the lack of a welcoming smile. The rest of the team was excellent.
Lovely food and good value. Staff were good. Would recommend.
I took my brother to Yorkshire outdoors for a 4x4 driving experience and clay pigeon shooting... the guys at YO recommended you for lunch... and what a treat that completed a great day. Friendly Staff, great beer (only 1 before the driving!) And what a lovely dini8 room. We're both big lads with big appetites but two courses off the lunch menu set us up for the afternoon and the quali9was right up there
. .. I've already recommended you to a friend!
Easily booked through OpenTable, with a confirmation email, reminder & further email on checking in. Lovely atmosphere, ambience, window table & would have had a great view if not for the fog. Fantastic food, not rushed & thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Only small point was the dried leftover ketchup on the table surface which ment the tables were not cleaned adequately from previous use on previous days. Everything else was brilliant and we will be back.
Pie and pint night with friends. The pies were delicious.
A real shame that the food and service was average at best as it's a lovely setting and ambience. I really wouldn't want to pay full price from the menu for the food, the set menu value is about as much as it's worth. For example the chicken i had came with "Charred" leeks.. these weren't charred they were deep fried & unfortunately when you deep fry such a fibrous veg it has the texture of chewing string. Not pleasant!
Lovely pub but staff need to be managed better. Sunday lunch had four options for food but it took a long time to come and was luke warm when it arrived. Roast pork had no crackling or apple sauce. Staff were v friendly, just think that the manager needs to sort out the service.
Would highly recommend. Food / drink and service exceptional. Thank you
Found we were rushed to make a choice of food . As soon as we got there got told we would have to choose quickly !! . The person that took our order blue jacquard dress from Next didn’t smile and the female waitress was horrendous no smiles nothing looked miserable and seemed like her skirt had shrunk in the wash and more bothered about pulling it down then customer service .
Delicious meal lovely way to celebrate a special family birthday
Service with a smile, good food and ambience . What more could one want !
Sunday lunch with our son and his wife, starter was good, then the main course arrived. The staff disappeared so no chance to ask for horseradish sauce, and since no one came to check how our meal was no chance to ask why our roast potatoes had been deep fried and were cold, the veg was cool, the meat (beef) was good tender and pink. So the veg and lack of attention from the staff spoilt a what could have been a good meal.
A really tasty Saturday lunch and a lovely relaxed atmosphere.
Overall excellent time, would recommend to others.
Waiters need to realise tables with children need serving quiet quick, as kids need feeding and entertaining, for a better dining experience for the diner.
Wonderful location, attentive staff, GREAT food, real fire.
I couldn’t fault the food, the service or the cosy atmosphere of this delightful restaurant. It was just perfect for a get together with friends. We weren’t rushed to leave the table and had a very very leisurely afternoon.
Been a few times before and had good food, this time it was not as good. The pate starter was chilled and lacked taste and the fish and chips were ok but the size of the fish for the money was poor value
Lovely atmosphere and festive decorations. Friendly staff and exceptional food which made for a brilliant night.
Lovely early evening meal with friends. We had the early bird which was very good value plus puddings. Service was excellent .
We had the most wonderful evening. The foot was excellent and the service was second to none.
Really enjoyed our lunch will be back grea5 good and a great atmosphere would recommend to anyone
Very enjoyable.would certainly call again.staff very attentave
Stunning location - wonderful food - excellent service - highly recommended !!!
Lovely food and atmosphere highly recommend for any action
The twice baked cheese and spinach soufflé was delicious. I would have had it as a main if it were on offer. We both chose steak as a main course which was cooked just as we asked.
My husband enjoyed the beer which he said tasted just as beer used to taste.
The service was excellent and the meal was good value for money.
My only very slight criticism was that our table was in a slightly dark area of the restaurant.
We'd definitely return if we are in that part of Yorkshire again.
A wonderful meal in gorgeous relaxed surroundings. Great friendly service. Plenty of choice on the menu and an unusual selection of desserts alongside old favourites.
It was my husband's 50th birthday.
We arrived an hour early and were accommodated very quickly.
We were given a free welcome drink as it was a special occasion, and my husband received a special birthday dessert.
The staff were excellent: efficient, friendly and humorous at times.
We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would love to return with more friends later in the year.
The restaurant ambiance is first class.
The decor, the log burning stove add to the homely feel of the restaurant.
However the Food was not to standard. The beef and the Pork were both very fatty in places. The waitress did ask how was our meal? Offered an apology but that was it!!!
Our comments it seems were ignored!
We had beer and wine. The beer was reasonably priced but the Malbec at over £8.50 per 250ml was extortionate. The house rose at £7.50 was the same.
Need to listen to customers. Don't ask " How was the meal " if you do nothing about it!!
A great Sunday roast dinner in a very comfortable country pub.
We really enjoyed our Sunday Lunch at The Carpenters, never been disappointed there and this was no exception. Service, food and quality all top notch.
Absolutely wonderful meal at the Carpenter Arms. Dining for special birthday surprise and the restaurant exceeded our already high expectations. Food was amazing and service staff extremely welcoming and friendly. Couldn't fault anything. Well recommended.
Definitely not as good as it used to be. Front of house girls was a verging on rude when she wanted to rush us with our order. The place wasn't even that busy so it seemed unnecessary. Girl who served us was lovely and always smiling which makes a big difference to how you feel. Still like it but not as good as a few years ago.
Lovely atmospheric village pub with excellent service and quality food. Great for any occasion.
I treated a friend as a 'thank you' lunch time meal and enjoyed it more due to her company. The room was very dark and I had to move to be able to read the menu. Although the meal was tasty, the plates were cold and this meant that the meal was not hot. Had it been hot it would have been tastier.
I was asked at the end of the meal if everything was alright and when I said it was tasty but the plates were cold - I was very discreet and pleasant- the reply was ' well we have a plate warmer' which I felt was not customer friendly!
Really lovely family meal to celebrate several birthdays with one on the day. Service a little slow to start but really nice people and the service picked up as well. Will certainly be back again. Great table position.
We very much enjoyed our visit to the carpenters arms , the overall ambiance is very pleasant, clean and spacious.
The staff were very attentive and professional .
The menu has enough to please most people and most importantly the food was very good perfectly cooked and presented.
We will be back.
Overall it was a very good experience.Food was very well prepared and of good quality.
Thought it was a bit expensive.Will return when next have a special occasion.(birthdays etc)
Superb. Welcoming venue that's dog friendly, while maintaining balance and respect for other diners who prefer not to have dogs present. Excellent food - my husband commented 'that's without a doubt the best fish and chips I've ever had!' This restaurant was highly recommended to us and did not disappoint.
Well worth the visit, a gem of a find. Food is exceptional and not requiring a long wait. Service is good and the views Fantastic.
Very friendly helpful staff , lovely views , food good . We've been here several times recently , we always enjoy our visits .
