Alice Hawthorn Inn: Absolutely Top Quality!
This is an upmarket pub/restaurant in an upmarket village, refurbished after being closed for two years, and apparently reopened in August 2009. It's overlooking what must be one of the prettiest villages in Yorkshire! I received a fantastic welcome when I arrived, and all the staff were attentive and on the ball.
The other reviews here are out of date - the pub is stunning now inside, and open every day except Monday. Sundays is Sunday Roasts 12 til 6, but Tuesday to Saturday, they do lunch 12 til 2.30 and dinner 6 til 9. I had the Fish Pie for my dinner - it was really tasty. And my girlfriend had Pork Fillet braised in cider - she loved it.
Favorite Dish: For pudding we had the 'Trio of Chocolate' to share - naughty but definitely very, very nice!

The Alice Hawthorn: Meat Dishes Rule!
A traditional country pub with tables outside (in the form of picnic benches).
Favorite Dish: On a hot summer day it was the quiche, chips and salad that appealed to me (as usual the salads on the menu seemed to be a bit pricier than they should be). The side salad on the quiche was quite generous with pickled beetroot, coleslaw, lettuce and tomato. It was all washed down quite adequately with a glass of cider!
The menu has a good choice of meat dishes such as lamb in sauce, various chicken dishes, cumbernauld sausage and steak. Usually I would have opted for one of these on a cooler day.

The Alice Hawthorn: The Beautiful Quiche
This place is famous for its meat and fish dishes and to be honest there's nothing much on the menu for us (veggies) but we love this place so much that we come here time and again. We tend to just have the Quiche (or a sandwich), but the Quiche is nice and so are the chips that come with it.
Alice Hawthorne: Pub Grub
Favorite Dish: Ploughmans and homemade Quiche with chips and salad were popular and portions were generous - so much so that a local cat enjoyed the food from our table too but I'm glad the huge old goose didn't come wandeing over for some grub!
Alice Hawthorne: The Only Village Pub
A sleepy country pub - so sleepy it doesn't open until 6pm! Anyway we enjoyed sitting outside on their picnic benches before ordeing our food.
Apparently renowned for their meet dishes but on a warm summer's evening after a days tour in nearby York, long cold drinks and salads were the order of the day.
