Get comfy in a leather armchair by the wood-burning stove, or take a seat in the restaurant area to sample some of the wide range of hearty pub classics.
I started with the crisp breaded whitebait, while my companion looked to the specials board and selected mussels in a deliciously creamy cider sauce. The menu boasts an impressive variety – for mains I chose a delectable halloumi salad with peppers, tomatoes and new potatoes. My companion plumped for one of The York Inn’s hearty homemade pies – a mouth-watering pastry casing enclosing succulent venison, Port and cranberries. We’d recommend working up an appetite before you visit as The York Inn serves satisfyingly hearty portions, and with such tempting options you’ll want to leave room for pudding. We just about had room to share a mountain of profiteroles, oozing with fresh cream and generously drizzled with chocolate. Despite the tranquil setting, The York Inn is only a few minutes off the A303, and is certainly worth a trip.
