The Woolly Sheep Inn
Situated on a cobbled street, this much-loved country pub makes visitors truly feel at home. The Woolly Sheep Inn is well known to locals and tourists alike as being the go-to place to rest and refuel. A Cask Marque accreditation pays homage to the superbly kept Timothy Taylor’s ales served behind the bar.
You can trust the team at The Woolly Sheep Inn to bring you well-presented, stylish food. The seasonally changing menu is all about dishes that utilise Yorkshire produce. One main that catches the eye is the oven-roasted venison with roasted beetroot, sautéed cabbage, sweet potato fondant and cherry jus. The 28-day-dry-aged steaks come from the local award-winning butchers and are a hit with diners. Desserts are rather tempting – there’s a triple chocolate brownie with salted caramel sauce, cherry ripple ice cream and peanut praline. On balmy afternoons take advantage of the large outdoor seating area with a pint of ale. Why not stay overnight in one of the 12 ensuite bedrooms before exploring Timothy Taylor’s pubs on foot or by bike – the pub is close to various routes.
