Was only there for an evening meal. Felt the service was ok, but needed more staff to cater for a larger audience.
Meal itself was ok - I'm a fussy eater though so wasn't ideal for me.
Overall the general atmosphere was good and the night was enjoyable.

Picking up our hire car I knew then that what had been for the last sixteen days was over. We had walked the surface and the contour of the Earth, each foot step solidly placed on rock, pebble, moor and peat, over creek and stream and through mud. We had felt the sting of the sun and the stifling humidity. We had been drenched to the skin and cold, we had walked amongst the clouds and seen the mist roll in from the sea. Pheasant, sheep and cows ...
And so to the last day. We had a wonderful stay at the Horseshoe Hotel. As we ate our breakfast and contemplated the days walk the rain fell outside. And it continued all morning. We got our waterproofs on, picked up our packed lunch from the bar and headed off onto Wainwrights route one last time. We reached Grosmont, the base for the North Yorkshire Moors Railway in about 40 minutes. The railway platform meets the main road so we got a glimpse back in time; the ...

First High Blakey moor, then Glaisdale Moor. The weather was fine and sunny, but a strong and cold wind pushed at our backs. I had seen enough heather after about an hour! Off the path we stopped to look at ancient way markers, burial mounds, and grouse with ...
... have improved dramatically. Much of the way has been along paved paths, built we learnt with the flag stones from demolished cotton mills. Today's path was wide and sandy, joining the old dismantled Rosedale railway all the way to Blakey Ridge. There were loads of people on it. A community marathon had sweaty tattooed creatures passing us regularly, then there were the cyclists, other trekkers, weekend walkers and even a couple of trail bikes competing for the ...
... 3 steep climbs (accumulatively 1000m) and descents . The gradients were tough but we were rewarded with spectacularly clear views to the north and east. For much of the time the ground to the left of the path fell away steeply giving uninterrupted cliff like views to the fields and villages 1000 ft below. The moorland itself was covered with heather, some in flower and much prettier than anything we had crossed ...
