Dropped into The Tempest Arms before Christmas and had an excellent meal, was very impressed by the friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Decided to pay another visit, book a room for the night and take our border terrier. Once again we weren't disappointed, great food, friendly staff, clean and relaxing room. Will definitely be going again.

We came to stay as a surprise for my husbands birthday. We had a hot tub suite room and it was amazing. Beautiful decor (though there were a few aesthetic bits that needed re-doing e.g scratches on a few surfaces and peeling paint near the bath.) The staff were very polite, helpful, and made us feel at home. The food...

We spent our first day out and about. We got to the hotel about 4.45pm we were greeted with smiles and a table of cakes. You could help yourself and take to your room to have with tea, so good. The room was fantastically clean. We did not realise till later that it was a double bed, which you only...

Been here four times never disappointed, already booked for next year. Always try to get room 11. Very friendly and welcoming, good selection of beers and spirits. Breakfast and dinners are always a pleasure, expect nothing less than Yorkshire portions.
