Anyone for Settle ?

Evening all,

Staying at Austwick Hall near Settle shortly.

Apparently food there pretty good but wonder if is anywhere else - from decent pub for lunch and proper real ales to evening meal places - worth trying nearby rather than eating at hotel both nights ?

Pub wise The Lion at Settle has some decent feedback and room looks quite nice.

Traddock hotel gets decent write up in some places - any good ?

I always struggle in the Dales to find genuinely great value places so all help gratefully received.

Thanks in advance.

      I'm not sure how close you'll be to Middleham, but quite awhile ago we had a very good dinner at The White Swan there. I can't guarantee what they're now up to, but maybe a seach will reveal the quality these days. It's a nice town, at any rate.. lots of jockeys on their horses in the mornings. :-)

        quite a way way, it turns out, but thanks for the suggestion !
        anyone else out there ?
        are there no West Yorkshire hounds ??

          Is the Bull at Broughton, nr Skipton any use? Or too much of a schlep?

          One of Nigel Haworth's pubs which, if it is as good as the three in Lancashire, then it will be pretty decent. If too far, may I suggest that you wend your way back to Merseyside via, say, the Clog & Billycock nr Blackburn.
