Hart’s Head Inn
Belle Hill, Giggleswick, Settle, BD24 0BA
If great hospitality, fantastic food and wonderful drinks are top of your list, the Hart’s Head Inn in Giggleswick is the right place to be. The kitchen, bar and restaurant were refurbished in early 2017, and the dedicated team is pretty pleased with the results. Natural light floods the relaxed dining space, where antlers and plush blue chairs offer a country-chic vibe, and chandeliers add a touch of sophistication. Head chef Graham’s Sunday roasts with all the trimmings have built up quite a reputation with locals, as has his signature cheese and onion pie, which hits the spot every time. Quality, seasonal produce makes up a menu of seasonal specials, pub classics and bar bites. Although the options change regularly, you may find the likes of poached duck egg with potato rosti and wholegrain mustard sauce, and homemade sausage roll with red onion relish to start. Main courses are equally delicious, with options such as pan-fried salmon accompanied by creamed cabbage, pancetta and crushed new potatoes, as well as chicken Milanese with fries and gremolata. End proceedings with a classic sticky toffee pudding drizzled with butterscotch sauce. There’s a pint with your name on it, as well as a special selection of gin for spirit-lovers. Seven individual bedrooms, fortnightly quizzes, live music events and seasonal events are just more reasons customers flood through the Inn’s doors.
