Visited for Steak Night (£25 for 2 inc. bottle of wine). Food was really excellent and wine too was superb. Really great value for money and we were full, but still managed a pudding (an apple pie and a jam sponge). Also excellent. Will certainly go back next time we are in the area.

My wife and I have thoroughly enjoyed our meals at The Galphay Inn and as other reviewers have said, so glad we ignored the review of 15 August 2010. The food is home cooked (agree with all comments re the chips!!) and is excellent value for money. There's also a good selection of beer, lager and wine. The Inn has a nice atmosphere and is run by a lovely couple, who are making terrific efforts to ensure that the reopened Galphay Inn is a success. We wish them well for the future and will continue to support them.

As previously stated this pub has reopened after two years. The beer is first rate - the landlady is very friendly - the food is basic "pub grub" sensibly priced. home made and very good. The best pub in North Yorkshire!!

Despite arriving very late in the afternoon at this pleasant local pub, the landlady was very accomodating in providing a well cooked meal with good portions of meat and freshly cooked veg plus a tasty vegetarian tart with real chips and mixed salad. The roast pepper soup proved a good choice of starter. The atmosphere was friendly and the comfortable surroundings made an enjoyable experience which is worth repeating.

What a lovely pub! We went in a party of five, late this afternoon and Sue, the landlady, was so accommodating that she rustled up an excellent Sunday lunch well after they normally finished serving food at 4. A warm welcome, stylish surroundings, good home cooked food, excellent beer and great service. What more could you ask for?

We are also glad that we ignored the review dated 15 August as we have just had a lovely Sunday lunch at The Galphay Inn. We eat regularly at this pub since it re-opened a few months ago but it was the first Sunday Roast we have had. It is great to see it open again after being closed for 2 years. We have thoroughly enjoyed every meal we have had and appreciate the reasonable prices. Couldn't agree more about the chips!

So glad that we decided to ignore the review dated 15/08/2010. We had a really lovely pub meal with excellent service. The food is very much that of the old style bar meal - good tasty food at a good price! Not like so many pubs that charge restaurant prices for mediocre fare. By the way - the chips are the best !

Very disappointed with this pub. We booked a table well in advance and arrived on time. We were told there was a short waiting time for food. There was only a choice of two sunday dinner meats which was fine, but as there wasn't a lot of options we didnt expect to wait over an hour for the food!! When it did arrive the beef was about 2 hours overcooked and only one slice offered. The veg was overcooked and we weren't offered enough for 5 people. The gravy was disgusting, it was extremely lumpy and so solid it didn't want to come out of the jug. When we questioned the proprietors, all we got was a lot of attitude and hassle. All in all we didnt enjoy the food or service. The only thing they got right were the drinks, even though when one of my party tried to change her mind whilst the manager was writing the order down, we got a lot of attitude and was told she had already written down her drink order. Not a good experience particularly as we were out for a birthday meal. WE WILL NOT BE RETURNING OR RECOMMEND THIS PUB!!

the pub closed a couple of years ago but has now reopened. The food is good. Reasonably priced. wines delicious and I'm told the beer is ok too! open each day from lunchtime except Monday and will always rustle up some simple but delicious food even when at quiet times. home made cakes are good dogs welcome

This is essentially a foodie pub, but saying that it also serves excellent real ales, including Timothy Taylor Landlord. The food is excellent, the decor is tasteful country and the place has ambience. On Thursday nights they offer free bottles of wine with every main course purchased. The food is much better quality than served in many pubs, and is one to recommend.
