Review on The General Tarleton

Known locally as 'The GT', this impressively renovated eighteenth-century coaching inn is easily located not far from the A1. It's a place of two halves, with much attention focused on low-ceilinged, fine-dining restaurant (open for dinner Monday-Saturday and Sunday lunch); also check out the delightful new garden terrace.

The menu is a showcase for local and regional produce, which is given vibrant modern treatment in the kitchen. Seared king scallops and homemade black pudding are served with creamed leeks and palm sugar dressing, roast rack and confit of Dales lamb are accompanied by a garlic, broad bean and thyme jus, while desserts might range from Yorkshire treacle tart with clotted cream to poached pear with honey ice cream in a cardamom tuile basket. The excellent wine list casts its near far and wide for serious drinking at attractive prices.

Similar food - plus some lighter pub-style dishes - is also available in the bar/brasserie right through the week. Here you will find Yorkshire real ales, plenty of wines by the glass and a menu that runs from potted shrimps to slow-braised oxtail pie and seafood Thermidor.
