Calming!
We have been enjoying the Punch Bowl for a number of years now but circumstances allowed only one visit last year. Suffering badly from ‘Punch Bowl Withdrawal’ then, we needed to get a jump-start on renewing our acquaintance with it and the lovely people who run it and this we did in mid-February. Suffice to say we have come away well watered and nourished and very happy to have ‘visited’ with the many great employees who have become friends over the years; it is they who lift the PB experience to one you simply wish to keep repeating so....thank you Bev and Sue and Kaz and Andrew and Matthew and Tom and Michael for ensuring that, like Gen. Douglas MacArthur, “we shall return!”

It has taken us some time to return to The Punch Bowl and it was far too long! We have often remembered the excellent stay we had there a couple of years ago and although we have made several day trips to beautiful Swaledale, we have only just managed to return to stay over.
From the friendly welcome to the fond farewell, everything was great. Our room (no. 5) was clean, spacious and well appointed with a view across the valley. The comfortable bed gave good rest and we found the bedding just right for us. Not too heavy or over warm. There was sufficient storage and a well appointed bathroom. We had forgotten their sensible system of having small bottles of fresh milk in a fridge in the sitting room, so it was always on hand for a tea or coffee.
The breakfasts were freshly cooked and delicious and we enjoyed a different choice of meals each evening
The staff made us feel “at home” and we always helpful and professional even when busy

Always ‘punches’ Above It’s Weight!
The Punch Bowl has been a favoured bolt hole of ours for a number of years and we continue to return because, unlike Sir Mick, we do get lots of satisfaction! It all starts with the drive in to this beautiful dale and the welcome we receive from Bev or Sue, Tom or Matthew, Kaz or Mike, depending who is on but whoever is on is always ‘on’. We have just enjoyed another of their three day dinner, bed and breakfast packages and continue to be impressed by the varied choice available on the Dinner Menu, all so appealing that it makes choice difficult....until you remember that what you didn’t choose today will likely be available tomorrow! One doesn’t even have to leave PB’s parking lot to sense Spring; we opened our car door, saw a robin and heard the curlew....and knew we had ‘arrived’! If you are trying the PB for the first time and are relishing all the good things it and it’s staff have to offer, just reflect on the pristine quality of the water and the air....and savour them because they too come gratis as part of the package!

Splendid Stay
We stayed at this splendid hotel for four four nights under a dinner, bed and breakfast arrangement just after Christmas. The quality of the food, both breakfast and dinner, was excellent with enough veriety to cater for the period concerned. The Superior bedroom (No. 6) was extremely comfortable and spacious. The only small point to note was that the hot tap was dripping slightly (needs a new washer?) and that the bedroom / bathroom door was sticking to the frame (needed a firm push). Please note that this is not at all a moan. Finally, the staff were friendly, attentive and catered to all needs. In short, this was our 2nd stay at the Punchbowl and we enjoyed it as much as the first visit. We will most certainly stay again.

A Lovely Place To Stay!
We enjoyed our stay with you and we\'re very comfortable. However I would like to make a couple of comments.
1 It would be good to have 2 chairs in a double room.
2. The very comfortable sitting room would be even better if there was the facility to make a drink.
3. On this occasion we felt that the food was not up to the very high standard we have experienced on our previous visits. We felt that half a duck breast was not an adequate serving for a main course and some of the food was rather lacking in flavour.

That said the breakfasts were superb and the front of house staff very friendly and helpful.

All staff were very friendly and helpful. Whilst we stayed in peak season my only criticism was the cost. I think 120 pounds a night is somewhat on the high side. I would love to return out of peak season with my wife as it is a wonderful place but would only do so if the cost is less, i do not know if deals are offered at off peak times to returning customers

Interesting Stay
We arrived hot and weary from a long walk to find the pub extremely busy with a large Christening party. No chance of sitting outside or in the bar but we did find room to sit and enjoy a shandy before being shown to our room. This was spacious and well appointed with a large comfy bed and a decent sized en suite shower room.
It was good to find a quiet and pleasant residents lounge and a fridge with fresh milk for our tea.
Our evening meal was served in the dining room and the food was very tasty and nicely presented, with a good selection of wines.
After dinner we retired to the lounge again and the pub finally quietened down.
Slept well and enjoyed a good breakfast the next morning.
We had ordered packed lunches which were slightly disappointing. They were on bread not baguettes and the tuna filling was extremely thin and there was no cucumber for one of them. The cheese and tomato sandwich had no tomato either and they weren\'t labelled so we had to unwrap them to find out what was in them.
Otherwise we were well cared for and didn\'t pay them as their machine had broken down! We were staying at their sister pub the next night and sorted the bill out then.
The bonus was being woken up by a pair of nesting house martins just outside our window in the morning.

This was perhaps our 7th or 8th stay here and we keep coming back because....\"it is always dependable and impressive\"! The setting is idyllic with such ready access to so many points of interest, and all within easy driving distance. And as good as the location is, it is matched equally by the staff, many of whom have become friends, from some of the long-termers like Bev and Sue, mid-termers like Richard and Kaz and more recent team members like Michael and Thomas, all who work seamlessly together to ensure a lovely experience for their guests. Behind the scenes, housekeeping keep the place spotless and the chef/kitchen staff continue to produce excellent meals to very high standards.

Comfort And Great Food Accompanied By Good Service
This was the first time that we\'d visited the beautiful Yorkshire Dales and we decided to stay 4 nights DBB at the Punch Bowl rather than have our normal self catering holiday. We were not disappointed! Our room had its own external access with fantastic views over Swaledale. There was a very comfortable king size four poster bed and my wife described the interior as country comfort. The room was very clean, spacious and the en suite benefited from an invigorating power shower plus bath. The food in the restaurant was excellent and made from fresh ingredients. The service was polite and attentive without being too formal. The wine was good quality and affordable. There was a good range of real ales from local breweries and of course, Prosecco for the ladies (they\'re the rules :)). We don\'t usually go back to the same place more than once but will be making an exception in the case of the Punch Bowl Inn.

50th Birthday Party
I arranged my 50th Birthday party in late December at the Punch Bowl Inn. We had the most fabulous night, well 24 hours in fact as the party started with afternoon tea, followed by a Champagne reception, dinner, stay in the most gorgeous rooms and then a full breakfast the next morning. It was the perfect way to celebrate 50 years. The staff are just brilliant, very attentive and accommodating. I planned the whole event with Bev via email and she is just the best party planner, understanding how I wanted the party to go and offering great suggestions. The food was perfect as there were quite a few dietary restrictions, but everyone was catered for. We brought our own music which worked well in the main dining room and gave us the chance to dance the night away. I could not have imagined that the party would have gone so well, but everything was perfect and I would highly recommend the Punch Bowl to anyone wishing to have a really special time. The accommodation is also fabulous with the most comfortable beds and great views across the valley. Thanks to everyone at the Punch Bowl. I hope to return before too long.

Familiar With The Area, Good To Find A Quality Place To Stay
We live not too far away in another part of the Dales, but it was good to be able to stay the night and base ourselves near Reeth. The Reeth fireworks were a bonus, and the Punch Bowl food afterwards was surprisingly good. It has given us the idea of getting a group booking together of several of our friends, but that might take a lot of forward planning as we could see the pub was popular.
The kipper for breakfast was the best I had ever had!

Lovely Break In Swaledale
My wife and I and my mother and father stayed for four nights commencing 12th November 2016. We opted for two superior rooms and we were not disappointed. The rooms and en suite facilities were large, clean and well appointed. The rooms also had good views over Swaledale. We enjoyed drinks from the well stocked bar on returning to the hotel every day and there were six comfortable chairs to use whilst enjoying the drinks. We ate in the hotel every evening, choosing from the menu written on the mirror at the end of the room. The menu was varied and what we had was well presented and delicious. The breakfast in the morning was speedy, tasty and there was more than enough of it. I had the cooked breakfast and though it was more than enough and was very varied, I was surprised that there were no baked beans on offer. However, the sausage was terrific. Finally, the staff were excellent hosts and nothing was too much trouble. This is our first stay at the Punchbowl and it will certainly not be our last. I know I can speak for all four of us when I say that we had a great time. Thank you very much.

A Great Place!
Hotel is in a great location with terrific views. Our room was clean and comfortable. We had a meal at the Punch Bowl the menu was extensive and food was tasty, portions were good and freshly prepared. A nice touch was the \"sitting room\" on the top floor with views and comfortable chairs. The staff were polite, attentive without being pushy and knowledgable about the area. All in all it was a great choice.

But over and above all that, every member of staff was exceptional and that\'s what made our stay so pleasurable.

What A Great Place To Stay And Explore Swaledale
We stayed at the Punch Bowl for three nights. The accommodation is superb - really comfortable bed and lovely en-suite with a fabulous view over the valley. The food is of a very high standard. We ate three wonderful evening meals from a wide choice menu with an extensive wine list. Breakfast is excellent. We had great service throughout - everyone was so unfailingly helpful - especially Beverley, Sue, Kas and Richard.
This is a perfect location from which to explore the Dales.
We would highly recommend The Punch Bowl - one of the very best places we have stayed in the countryside and worth every penny.

No hesitation recommending The Punch Bowl. Second visit this year. This time stayed in twin room #8 which is beautifully decorated and on the top floor with a lovely view across the dale. Easy parking. Staff were welcoming and the food (dinner on Saturday, breakfast Sunday morning) was very good. They were very busy on Saturday night with a large group booked in at 7pm, we ate soon after but service was spot on, there were no long waits, and no details in the order were missed.

Great Relaxing Stay
All in all a perfect place to stay and take it easy!!
Pros- Great veiws over valley, We were in Room 6
Very comfortable bed and plenty of room for our belongings. Large bathroom and plenty of hot water.
Staff freindly and helpfull .
Fantastic walks literally on the door step. (We did not need to use the car at all during our 3 day stay!
Braeakfast fantatic with the best yoghurt we ever tasted ditto the suasages. Nice to be served two eggs as standard.
Cons- the only issue I had were the evening meals although delicious there was a sad lack of vegetables on the plate so it was necessary to have to pay an extra £2 each for mixed vegetables or small salad and then another £2 for a dish of potatoes. The meals were not exactly cheap to begin with!!
Please don\'t let this put you off though this stops me awarding the pub a full 5 stars!!

Cozy Haven When All Around Was Flooding
We stayed here for a few days on a muddy boots break just before Christmas. The welcome was friendly and informal, and all the staff were very helpful and congenial. We had a room in the annex which was gorgeous, clean and comfortable. We were glad we\'d booked dinner as travelling around was difficult in the floods; the food didn\'t disappoint and was of high quality and delicious.

We decided to stay in the bar on one of the days as the roads out were pretty impassable and we were made very welcome. Sitting by the fire was very cozy and inviting, and the choice of hand-pulls was very good. The inn took in deliveries for the locals who were cut off which was a nice touch and it meant we were kept up to date with the weather reports! Richmond and Leyburn are well worth a visit if you like towns that aren\'t \'samey\' and boringly repetitive.

The only thing we could have wished for was a better selection of cider. There are lots of bottled craft ciders available and real ciders are becoming more popular. (Ones made from fruit other than apples don\'t count!). Just a regular Strongbow would have been nice. This is being a bit picky as all in all the food and drink was excellent. It\'s just a matter of individual choice, not really a criticism, and you can\'t have everything. Just a suggestion!

We had a very enjoyable stay and certainly hope to return to this beautiful area. We would hopefully be able to do a bit more walking in better weather. We would definitely stay at the Punch Bowl again.

Faultless
I was trying to find accommodation in North Yorkshire for a 2 night stay over the Bank Holiday. It seemed most of the county was booked! As a result I must admit to a little trepidation on making a reservation at the Punch Bowl as I wondered why there was still some availability. However, any concerns were dispelled immediately upon our arrival. Room 10 is a beautiful room, well decorated, very spacious, very clean, very comfortable with a very large bathroom. The food in the restaurant is first class at the price, and the beer in the bar was equally well kept with a decent selection including a local Pale Ale and the ubiquitous Black Sheep. Breakfast was excellent although served in quite a narrow time window, but on a Bank Holiday Weekend I guess there\'s no reason to be eating any earlier so no complaints. A special word for the management and staff, who were professional and efficient while remaining warm and friendly throughout, and thanks to Chef for staying a little longer than normal to rustle up some dinner on our slightly late arrival. All in all this is the perfect place to stay when visiting Swaledale, with Richmond, Leyburn, Hawes, Aysgarth, Castle Bolton etc etc all within easy reach, and with some spectacular moorland through which you can drive (and then walk) if you take one of the narrow lanes straight up and over rather than sticking to the main roads. We\'ve stayed in some far more expensive places in the surrounding area (Yorebridge House\'s best rooms for example, which was nice, but a bit full of itself), but after staying at the Punch Bowl I would say that everything you need for a perfect stay in the Dales is here. Thanks to everyone for making our stay a great one, and we hope to be back soon.

We\'ll Be Back
Visited the Punch Bowl for a couple of nights whilst visiting Swaledale for a couple of days walking. We were in room ten which is on the found floor of the \'house\' next door. The room was lovely, with everything you could need, my husband was particularly impressed by the homemade shortbread biscuits. The food is highly recommended, with a good variety to choose from. the wine and beer also has a good selection, if you can\'t choose from the beer on top, you can have 3 x 1/3 pint in order to help decide on your favourite. The staff are helpful and friendly. Wifi works in the bar, which is fine and not unusual in older buildings with thick stone walls. we\'ll definitely stay again when we get up to swaledale.

Excellent accommodation, superb meals and great hospitality.
The location might be hard to find (put your trust in the sat nav) but it is breath-taking.

Highly recommended.

Superb Visit
We had a wonderful time in your lovely inn. Our room and food were excellent. All staff very helpful.
Please take the following as helpful hints and by no means criticism:-
1. Mugs in rooms instead of cups? ( but loved fresh milk from fridge)
2.Soap bars rather than squeezy bottles and conditioner as well as shampoo.
3.Face clothes would have been welcomed.

Hoping be with you again and bring some friends.

We arrived in the evening thoroughly soaked after walking for the last 2 hours of our 20 mile plus day in a downpour to be welcomed by Sue who very kindly took all our wet clothing & boots to the boiler room to dry. After a relaxing hot bath in our spacious & comfortable room we enjoyed a drink in the bar before dinner which was delicious & of great quality. Bags of character, impressed by the Robert (Mouseman) Thompson bar & furniture. Not the cheapest stay on our 190 mile trek across the country but good value given the standard of accommodation & service.

The Perfect Getaway!
We had found a groupon voucher for this place which included two nights bed and breakfast. When we rang to book they only had superior rooms left so we had to pay a tiny bit extra to upgrade but i\'m so glad we did! The room was just stunning, so beautifully decorated and well kept. Complete with mini fridge and homemade shortbread. We also ate in the restaurant both nights and while the food was a bit pricey it was very good! As was the cooked breakfast each morning. The lady who runs the place was so kind and couldn\'t do enough for you even helping us to decide where to go each day. Because the place is set so high up aswell we had a stunning view of the valley and it also meant that you had to drive along some incredibly fun country roads every time you wanted to go anywhere. An all round brilliant b&b and one i would highly recommend!!

This is not a hotel but a very good gastro-pub that provides tastefully decorated bedrooms with comfy beds and in our case a large en-suite bathroom. The meals are served in the dining area away from the bar, although you can eat there if you wish, on plain pine scrubbed tables by young, and in most cases, knowledgeable staff who are eager to please. If we had any queries, we had one, which if our experience was anything to go by, was speedily and politely dealt with. What more can you ask for or want.

Stayed for a couple of nights whilst having a walking holiday. Fantastic location looking down the Swaledale valley. Rooms are excellent quality and Room 9 we stayed in was very comfortable (a bath would be nice especially as this is an upgraded room), but don't let this detract from the quality.

A lovely place to stay, friendly, helpful staff. We stayed in room 11, which is beautifully decorated, with great views,(unless the cloud is covering the hills). IF and I say IF, I HAVE to mention anything, it would be to re-silicone around the back of the bath. On a personal note I would like ALL hotels to have bath sheets and anti-slip mats in the bath, but that is purely personal. Everywhere was spotless, and the food was well cooked and presented. Perhaps add a little low background music? I hope to return sometime in the future.

We have just got back from a two night break at The Punch Bowl. We could not have asked for staff that were more willing to help out and cater for our needs. I am a vegetarian, and a very fussy one at that. Once I'd explained to the staff my dietary requirements they spoke to the chef and came up with a range of ideas for meals they were able to create for me which weren't on the menu. The food was excellent, the drinks were reasonably priced and all of the staff members 'go the extra mile'. Thank you! x

A Nice Change From The Cb Inn
We decided to introduce some keen walkers to the Yorkshire Dales and stay two nights at the Punchbowl rather than the CB Inn. It was a really nice pub with tastefully furnished rooms on a quiet road. The food was superb and a great choice. We had a vegetarian in our group and the chef obligingly suggested an alternative choice to what was already on offer. Pan fried pheasant was excellent, as were the steaks. The pudding portions were generous, so leave space! The only downside was that some gaiters were removed from the muddy boot area, so best to be sure you are ok to leave things by the door ( although we believe they may have been taken in error since no boots were taken). The atmosphere was definitely quieter than the CB, but we're were a large group. Definitely nicer to eat in the bar area if there is room. In summary, lovely rooms, friendly and obliging staff and great food - what's not to like?

A warm, friendly welcome on arrival .We were shown to a lovely room with windows overlooking the beautiful dales .Our room had a big ,comfy four poster bed and a large en-suite bathroom with lovely white fluffy towels. Staff warm and friendly and as soon as you enter this lovely hotel you feel very comfortable. Food is of a very high standard-locally sourced and seasonal prepared by an amazing chef and his team .Service is excellent.I would definitely recommend this hotel to visitors to Yorkshire-many lovely places to visit nearby -Richmond , Leyburn ,Aysgarth Falls , Hawes and Wesleydale Creameries to name but a few.

The Punchbowl Certainly Packsa Punch
A thoroughly enjoyable weekend in Room 4 courtesy of a Travel Zoo voucher & good value for money.Thanks to all the staff for a 'home from home' welcome even the black faced Swaledale sheep nodded to greet us upon arrival.The food produced by Gino, the larger than life & well travelled chef was excellent.The home made bread at breakfast was a nice personal touch together with fresh milk available 24/7 in the sitting room.My wife & I thoroughly recommend the Punch Bowl ideally situated between the market towns of Richmond, Leyburn & Hawes.One word of warning at this time of year the weather changed dramatically to sleet & snow on our journey home & we found ourselves almost stranded on one of the wild desolate moorland roads.Fortunateley this experience failed to detract from a superb stay at the Punch Bowl which we recommend whole heartedly.

Simply The Best
Stayed one night on a Travelzoo deal. Received a warm welcome and were shown to our room which was spotless and spacious. The usual tea, coffee and biscuits were available but with fresh milk rather than the horrible packets.
The bar area is typical village inn style with the exception of all the wooden furniture being the famous Dales "mouseman"
complete with tiny mouse on each piece.
Good selection of hand pulled beers plus the usual others and excellent selection of wines.
No standard menu here, just a large mirror with around a dozen, certainly non standard,
selections. When the food arrived it was as good as some of the well know Chef dishes and, happily, not "pictures on a plate".
Service was excellent with the chef checking with diners that everything was OK.
The ambience was excellent as were the views over the dales.
All in all an excellent experience which many so called five star places could learn from. Well done.

Weekend 10 -12 Jan 14
We have stayed at the P B several times and have always found it delightful The staff in particular are invariably polite , cheerful and obviously very well trained.
It has one of the rural locations we know of and , although we visit mainy in the winter months the accommodation is invariably warm and inviting - occasionally the bedroom may be a little chill but we only have to ask the staff to "boost"it and this is immediately done. Check out is always very straightforward.
The meals are top quality - if we have any negative point it is perhaps that the mark up on wine is a little high we believe

Everything We Imagined
I surprised my partner for his birthday and we had a lovely weekend with dinner and breakfasts. After driving down the winding roads we easily found the Inn. It was a bit smaller than we thought but it was homely and very friendly. The (deluxe)room was clean and comfortable and a good size with a large on suite shower room. The TV reception wasn't great but what do you expect for the middle of Yorkshire moors. This was to be a weekend away from square screens anyway!!

All of the food was delicious and it was really nice to know that the chef cared about whether you enjoyed it and he came and talked to everyone at the end of the evening. The poached eggs were perfect and the kippers were a nice change on the Sunday morning.
Next time (which i hope there will be) I will ask for one of the rooms with a bath but otherwise wouldn't change anything else.

We have just returned from a wonderful weekend and would like to say a huge thank you to all of the staff for making us feel so welcome. From the moment we stepped through the door we felt 'at home' and nothing was too much trouble. The food was fantastic - high quality, very tasty and beautifully cooked and presented. Far superior to many four star hotels that we have stayed in. The rooms were spotless and well equipped. We had such a great time that if really didn't matter that the weather was poor! If I could ask for one slight improvement it would be that there was a bath in the bathroom. There was plenty of room for one and I would have loved to relax in one at the end of the day. The breakfasts were perfectly cooked and presented, and there was a wide variety to choose from. I am reluctant to say that you MUST stay here, but only because I'm being selfish and don't want The Punch Bowl to become so popular that I can't get in next time I want to stay!!

A high standard of cleanliness was maintained both in the room and in public areas. The staff were welcoming, friendly and efficient. The food was delicious! We had booked bed and breakfast but ended up having an evening meal on all 3 nights because the food was wonderful and good value. The breakfast was amazing! We will definitely return in the future.

Pure Pleasure
We had a very pleasant stay at the Punch Bowl Inn this week. When we came upon the inn we couldn't believe the beautiful stunning views we could see from our bedroom window.
The staff were extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome. We realised the only place to eat would be the inn so booked our evening meal and found the food to be the best ever.
Thank you for a great stay.

Love From New York
I really loved my stay, the view was just wonderful and what I came for. My room was spacious and comfortable if only it had not been on the top floor, my old legs really got a workout. But I would come again if that was the only room available.
However, I brought,y is ster anther husband to stay and their room was in the annex...it was extremely hot and a little confining. Had I known she could walk stairs I would have liked her to stay in the main building.
What can I say about the food? Just wonderful and we have to be thankful that we did not stay longer or we would surely be fatter. Thank you for all your very kind attention from all the staff. I will try to come again.

Superb Place To Stay
Stayed 3 nights at the Punch Bowl for a post New Year trip to Swaledale. Second time in 12 months. The room was very nice, spacious and excellent view (Room 4). Very powerful shower which I love - certainly wakes you up!
Food was excellent all three nights. 4 excellent local real ales on tap (Theakstons, Black Sheep & Rudgate) but no Black Sheep Riggwelter - disaster! But I was assured it would return in the spring!

There's a nice atmosphere about the pub - big roaring wood burning stove at one end of the bar and comfy chairs. Plenty of locals seem to frequent the place.

The walking in Swaledale nearby was lovely, despite the soggy conditions underfoot - we stuck to the old mine tracks and they were fine.

Staff are excellent and very friendly - nothing is too much trouble. All in all - 10 out of 10! Thanks for a great stay!

A Little Luxury In Swaledale
Previous visits to the PB Inn for evening meals didn't disappoint so this time around we decided to stay for a couple of nights. We stayed in Room 1 and enjoyed the comfortable facilities, excellent breakfasts and dinners and were made very welcome by the staff on arrival. Don't be put off by the comment in the accommodation descriptions about the room being above the bar - it did not spoil our stay at all. The rabbits on hillside outside one of the bedroom windows kept us highly entertained and the views across Swaledale from other window fabulous even though the weather was on the grey side. Definitely would recommend the PB Inn and will definitely be back.
