Ian and Eunice Walker’s whitewashed village inn dates from 1620, when it was built as a granary using stones from the ruins of nearby Byland Abbey, and it sits in the shadow of the Hambleton Hills.

There are two oak-beamed, flagstone-floored bars, one with a huge inglenook fireplace, the other with a wood-burning stove, and the atmosphere is relaxed and informal – dogs are welcome to sprawl contentedly across the floor, while locals, walkers and cyclists quaff pints of Timothy Taylor Landlord.

High quality, freshly prepared meals are prepared from local produce as far as possible. Tuck into decent sandwiches, salads and ploughman’s, or choose one of the Wombwell classics, perhaps the Wass steak, Guinness and mushroom pie. Look to the week’s specials for scallops with a prawn and saffron sauce, or pan-fried beef with a creamy mushroom and mustard sauce, and leave room for apple and pear crumble or a plate of local cheeses.

The superb quality of the food in The Wombwell Arms was recognised recently when the pub was voted one of the top 50 places to eat in the British countryside by THE TIMES newspaper.

The 3 en suite rooms were all refurbished to a high standard in 2009. All contain double beds which were specially selected to provide guests with a comfortable night’s sleep.

Every room has tea/coffee-making facilities and a flat screen TV with freeview.
