 We are  situated in the beautiful village of Ampleforth, North Yorkshire which is the gateway to many fabulous walks and Ampleforth College. Our 18th Century traditional Country Inn dates back to 1768.

We are now into our 10th year  and have a ‘simple dream’, to create,  a Warm, Welcoming Village Inn serving Consistently Delicious Home Cooked Food, Local Hand Pulled Ales and Great Wines. Our charming cosy Bar rooms with log fires, oak beamed ceilings, flagstone floors, candlelit tables create a warm friendly atmosphere and make it the perfect place to relax and unwind.  Looking for a Private  Dining Room for that Special Family Occasion or just a Get together with Friends then our Main Restaurant provides the perfect venue, Candles flicker against the Rustic Stone Walls, Soft Music creates a lovely atmosphere.

Try one of our popular Traditional hand pulled Yorkshire beers including Guest Ales from  local Brewery’s, Helmsley Brewing Company and Theakstons. Our fine wines by the glass include New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc which is a firm favourite with our customers and our Popular French Malbec by the Glass is a delicious Red Wine .

Pete’s passion for Homemade food produces Consistently Delicious Dishes from locally sourced Produce. Please note all our meals are cooked fresh to order.

Nikki ensures everyone receives a warm friendly welcome.  Children, Dogs (Bar Only)  and muddy boots are welcome We also provide traditional board games to keep the kids amused and Doggy Treats for our 4 legged friends.

We have 2 small beer gardens for those sunny days to relax outside and watch the world go by.
