Taking pride in its beautiful location, The Kestrel near Knareborough serves well-loved British pub food and has a luxurious Innkeeper’s Lodge. In keeping with its remote setting, The Kestrel has an al fresco beer garden and an eye-catching stone design, including the warm hearth for winter dining.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Kestrel menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Kestrel ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

Despite its country location, The Kestrel is just 7 minutes’ drive from Knaresborough, and 6 minutes from Harrogate.

    There were 4 of us dining at 1pm, it took 45mins before our order was taken. And another 40 mins before food came... then sat with finished plates for ages before anyone took them away. The staff were pleasant enough but would not recommend to my friends !

  • ((((( 17 January 2017 by LU from York

    Enticed by a bookatable 25% discount we came as a party of 3 and were greeted by friendly staff. We all enjoyed our choice of meal - very large Main course so glad we didn't have a starter! The Thai cod was delicious - just the right amount of spiciness according to our vegetarian son and my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the duck with orange sauce. Our waitress was very helpful and friendly.

    Overall we received excellent service - our waitress was attentive to our requirements and dealt with the hosts dietary issues very well. The food was most enjoyable and all the party enjoyed it. The atmosphere was just like home with a warming log fire and all the trimmings. Thank you. We will be back!
