"Booked a last minute break and having never heard of Middleton Lodge was somewhere new to try. Only 1 room left (standard) and took advantage of the special Autumn offer of £219 dinner bed and breakfast. Arrived onto the huge, wooded estate and after temperatures taken given key and welcome pack and parked up. We were staying in the Coach House and a stunning canopied, fairy lit courtyard awaited us before and headed up to our hayloft room ‘Adventurer’ If this was ‘standard’ the other rooms must be exquisite! Vaulted, beamed ceiling, unique themed furniture, king size bed with white crisp linen, fridge with juice/water/fresh milk, Nespresso, iron, hairdryer, Roberts radio - everything you would expect from a boutique hotel. The bathroom was gorgeous- roll top bath and walk in shower, huge sink, fluffy robes and towels and absolutely beautiful toiletries (I’m in love with the Rhubarb hand wash!) After enjoying some relaxing in the room, headed down for a G&T under the patio heaters before going to our table in the restaurant. Again, tastefully and immaculately decorated in a lovely building. Dinner was perfect: £40 allowance as part of the offer meant we gorged ourselves on sour dough and crackling nibbles; fish cakes and lamb flatbread starters; fantastic sea bream and cod mains; plus a delightful apple brioche and brownie sundae. Timed really well and a thoroughly enjoyable experience. After a good nights sleep, headed down for breakfast which again was delicious and a little different from the norm: huevos rancheros and poached egg with sweet potato, chilli and lime. Washed down with juice and coffee. A real bonus was our morning walking round the grounds - really glad of a crisp autumn morning to enjoy the fabulous vegetable walled garden and the woodland walk. We will definitely be back pre-Christmas, hopefully to enjoy a stay in the Dairy and to enjoy the grounds in the winter. Can’t wait!"
"Firstly may I say Middleton Lodge is my absolute favourite place to visit. I would normally shout from the rooftops how wonderful this place is. However, last night was such a disappointment. We all know covid has affected many businesses but this is no excuse for poor quality service. As you walk through the beautifully lit gazebo area you expect it to be everything and more. We were out in what is normally the waiting room for drinks before being taken to the table, next to the toilets! It was freezing too. We had booked well in advance, not last minute. We had to wait 25 minutes before someone came and asked if we would like pre dinner drinks, normally done as you enter. There are plenty of waiting staff, so no excuse there. When they did arrive some 15 minutes after ordering they were, in fairness, Devine. The starters were lovely it has to be said. The mains however, were a disappointment. I had lamb nice, but not exceptional, the couscous was cold was it meant to be cold? The fillet steak was so dry you could have bounced it off the wall. In fairness to the maitre’d she agreed, rushed it away to start a fresh. A tad better, but still not what you would expect from this class of restaurant. Of course the rest of the table had finished eating, never a good thing. And again, the maitre’d took the cost off the bill. Which although extremely nice, and unexpected, isn’t really what we wanted, just a good quality meal. As we know everywhere has to closed by 10.00pm it was now 9.50pm no time to enjoy puddings or after dinner drinks although they were offered. As long standing visitors to this establishment I was very disappointed. I wonder in hindsight would the forge restaurant have been any better?? I don’t feel I want to return for a very long time. I feel so sad, as I said at the start this was my favourite place to go."
"What a perfect place to escape the world for a night. I booked the Dairy Cottage as an anniversary treat. We were greeted at the gates with a temperature check and were handed to keys to the room meaning we could get into our room earlier than we had expected. The room is out of this world - it comes with a hefty price tag but I felt it was worth a special treat. The outdoor hot tub made it even more luxurious and we also used the indoor bath the following day. The room was warm and extremely comfortable. Loved the little touches like the music playing softly as we entered the room. We ate in the Coach House as part of the Dinner, Bed and Breakfast. The menu was stunning and made it hard to choose but we were both happy with our fish dishes. The ambiance of this place was just right. We tried to find the entrance to the Walled Garden the next day on a stroll around the grounds but couldn’t see it ... oh well, guess we’ll have to come back and find it another time!"

"We only stayed for one night at the hotel which is now re-named The Wensleydale and for the last couple of months has been under new ownership. There is clearly quite a lot to do to bring the hotel up to standard but a good start has been made on the reception and restaurant areas and windows. The room was a little 'tired' but there were new towels, bedding etc and the main thing was it it was clean! Everyone was very helpful and friendly. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed the night we stayed but we enjoyed our breakfast which was plentiful and well cooked and presented. Ideally located and we look forward to returning at some future date to see it post refurbishment - one suggestion - perhaps make replacement of the stair carpet a priority. It definitely has a bit of an 'aura' about it!"
"This old coaching inn is in a great position in the middle of Middleham town. After a warm welcome in the Bar/Reception we climbed the stairs to our room and straight away got the impression that this old inn was looking very tired and worn. We paid £10 extra for a superior room which had 2 large windows overlooking the town square but there was nothing else superior about the room! There was no shampoo, soap etc provided and only 1 toilet roll. Bed was clean & comfortable. We discovered the hotel is in the process of changing hands so look out for a re-vitalised White Swan in the future."
"Rooms comfortable. Views across the square. Able to watch horses going to an from the gallops. Local Theakstone’s beer and lager at the bar. Excellent seating area outside, in the sun most of the day, able to just watch the worl go by! Food excellent,service attentive. Very good value. Definitely return."

"Did a late booking for dinner having heard good reports. The menu wasn’t reduced due to Covid which was great. The safety precautions were excellent with a one way system, table spacing and no sharing condiments. We felt very safe. The food was wonderful the Fish cakes with poached eggs were substantial and very tasty. The McKinnon filet steak was a triumph cooked to perfection along with a plain fillet steak again cooked perfectly. The trio of creme brulee had beautifully balanced flavours and finished the meal perfectly. This will definitely be our go to place when we are in the area, a real jewel in the dales"
"Visited 4th October for Sunday dinner. Sat in the bar as we had our dog with us. My daughter had the chicken goujons off the children's menu, great portion. I had the lamb whilst my husband had the beef. We were both pleased with our meals-little bit more veg would go down nicely. Puddings were fab. Only reason I've given a 4 not a 5, is lack of baby changing facilities which I think in this day and age is really quite poor. Changing my 13 week old son on the floor wasn't ideal at all, luckily I carry a travel mat in my changing bag but others may not. Just something to bare in mind. "
"Stayed this weekend very hospitable and made to feel very welcome. Arrived mid afternoon no lunch menu but was furnished with home made pate and terrine with beautiful warm bread washed down with cool Peroni. Had a short walk and came back for dinner, wonderful special fillet steak and sticky toffee pudding. Breakfast equally tasty. Felt completely safe at all times all staff very friendly. Did I say the good was stunning? 😉 "

"We often stay at chain hotels, because we get what we expect to get, even if it lacks the wow-factor. Staying at one-off places is often disappointing. Not so the Frenchgate – and not just because we found ourselves bedding down in the Mousey Thompson bridal suite. We have been interested in the Kilburn wood-carver/furniture-maker for several decades, so it was a delight to happen on this room quite by chance – with a fireplace, a door and two other of his carved rodents that we failed to discover. We shall have to return to try again. The room was lovely, and presumably the best of the nine in the house. As importantly, so were the welcome, the food and drink and the service. How serendipitous that it should be so convenient a stopping-off point on our journey home from the Cairngorms. The setting is delightful, a Jacobean-to-Georgian town house in a quiet cobbled street in a town steeped in history for good or ill, depending on your perspective of English heritage. As to the food, the menu is short, but has something for everyone. My wife and I had different seafood starters, which were exquisite, hers followed by venison and mine by lamb – faultless and combined with carefully complementary vegetables. (We were actually sated before the desserts, which were also to die for, if you like that sort of thing.) We had eaten so much that we discovered the hotel's drawback – no lift, so we had to walk upstairs! Breakfast was delightful, too, crowned by home-made bread."
"A fabulous hotel in a very peaceful and quiet location which is just a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Richmond. Both the facilities and staff were superb. Amazingly comfortable 7 ft wide bed and the food (we had both dinner and breakfast) was of the highest quality. Dinner was a particular standout - imaginative, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. The chefs are very talented. As always, its always worth booking direct either by phone or through the offers on the website - this is a small, owner-managed hotel who will look to tailor your stay to meet your requirements."
"We stayed in the Mousey Thompson Suite, biggest and comfiest bed I’ve slept in. Bathroom had both a jacuzzi bath and large shower. Dined in for the evening and food was excellent. Large lounge area with wood burning stove for guests. Host very entertaining and staff very friendly. Breakfast was good too and for me a bonus you can make your own toast when you are ready for it. Will be back again."

"Having had to cancel our wedding anniversary stay in June due to Coronavirus we looked carefully for a replacement when restrictions were lifted. And what a choice we made in The Kings Head Hotel. Louise and the team really looked after us. A lovely card and a few treats awaited us in our room on arrival. A lovely personal touch. We booked a deluxe room and boy was it worth the extra few ££'s we paid. A hidden door in the bedroom wall led to a beautiful large bathroom with a stand alone bath, large shower and lovely mood lighting. We had the most enormous bed and the view from the room was right onto Richmonds market square. Bang in the middle of the action. Excellent Covid-19 awareness practices in place throughout the building. Staff friendly and attentive to our every need. A true surprise and an exceptional stay. If you think about staying here pay the extra few ££'s for the deluxe room you won't be dissapointed!"
"We stayed here while house hunting in Richmond. We got the last available room so I thought we might be disappointed. We were not. The room was quiet, warm and comfortable. It was very clean and in these risky times we felt safe. Staff in the hotel were lovely. We had dinner on both evenings.There were screens between tables where necessary. My husband loved his mushroom veggie main course! Menu choices were good and food well cooked. The stairs are wide and shallow but if you are unfit, ask for a room in first floor. The room itself merits 5 stars, I gave it 4 because there is no lift to get there! We found out new home and look forward to your hotel becoming a place to pop into for lunch."
"Booked overnight accommodation just before lockdown and were lucky to have lovely weather too. We were given a room upgrade which was a really large room with a view overlooking the square which was brilliant. Comfy and huge bed. Really good service and friendly staff and felt very safe during covid. Would definitely recommend and will return."

"We called up yesterday at 2:25pm (15.3.20) to see if the Black Lion could accommodate 13 people for Sunday lunch. Bearing in mind they stop serving Sunday lunch at 3pm, they were really accommodating and said that we could have the room upstairs. We all jumped in the car and got down for about 2:40 and the staff were nothing but super attentive and brilliant. The Sunday roast was excellent and I’m very fussy when it comes to going out for a Sunday roast as I always feel I could do a better job myself! However this meal was fantastic. Everything was really fresh and the pork and beef was so lean, it melted in your mouth. Thanks so much for being so accommodating at such short notice. We will be back."
"Booked a few days to explore the dales and local area. The hotel is very convenient for the centre of Richmond and has its own small car park having said that we always managed to get a space. The staff are all friendly and very hard working. Breakfast is great with such large portions that we barely felt like eating for the rest of the day ! Plenty of choice from the menu and specials board for evening meal which was also very good. The only thing that lets this hotel down is the decor which is rather tired and could do with a refurb."
"Some places you've visited in the past don't seem to live up to expectations when you return . That cannot be said of Black Lion. Returned tonight and nothing has changed , staff are superb , food is superb, atmosphere is homely and relaxed , prices are more than acceptable. Keep up the standards and cant wait till be are able to return ."
