What a wonderful find. I was looking for somewhere halfway to meet my daughter for Sunday lunch. She was coming from Newcastle and I from Bradford. Found this place easily and was given a lovely friendly welcome on stepping inside. Only small inside but warm and sociable with lovely decor. Even tho we hadn’t booked, a table was found for us and we were quickly seated. We both chose the traditional beef dinner and wow, the beef was plentiful, gorgeously cooked and Melted in the mouth! Accompanied by Yorkshire puds roasties, mash and veggies. Absolutely delicious! We both chose a desert too which was fabulously presented and tasted Devine! A gorgeous Sunday dinner and easily one we will do again soon! Can’t wait to go back!
The perfect “countryside pub”. Wonderful food and service. If you want peace and quiet, this is the place for you. Can’t fault. Thank you. 😊
A classically beautiful Yorkshire pub where friendly staff are quick to serve you. The food was excellent with lots of fresh and well cooked vegetables. The sweets were equally as good. We enjoyed the meal so much that we decided to go there for my wife's 60th birthday next June. We originally intended to go to a London restaurant for this occasion but why bother when there are places of quality nearer home
We visited the Dog and Gun for a family birthday on 09.02.2020. Food and service were both excellent. Staff were very friendly. Sunday lunch was fab. Many thanks for a great day
Having seen so many good reviews for this place, me and my partner decided to visit after the new year celebrations. It was a Saturday evening and quiet (understandably with it being the first weekend of January). The staff were very welcoming and friendly. We both ordered the build your own burgers which were without doubt the best burgers we've had. You could even choose a gluten free bun!
Also get the potato skins for a starter... delicious!
The Dog and Gun do an occasional Burger Night. Make your own burger for £10.
Chicken or beef, roll, gluten free roll, ciabatta etc. Onion rings, mushroom, tomato, cheese, bacon etc etc etc.
Great value an great taste, plus a range of beers with a guest ale.
We’re frequent visitors. Again last night. Still the best place for miles around. Best burgers anywhere, but the menu is all excellent.
lovely traditional pub. Food was really nice. we had sunday lunch and the roast beef was delicious. Service was also really good. could not fault.
Came here for my birthday. We have been once before and I wanted to go to my fav restaurant of the year. So I chose here! It’s a very special place. Amazing food. I love the cosy atmosphere also.
A brilliant cosy pub with great service and, of course, delicious food. Vegan burgers were super tasty!
Situated just off the A19 in small village of Knayton. Nice old pub with good menu and very good food. Opening times limited so check before venturing out. Also don't rely on booking on internet---a reply will be late, if at all ! Use the phone, but don't expect a response first time! Popular and busy at weekends.
We had a fantastic trip to the Dog and Gun at Knayton for our party of eleven. Everyone had a wonderful meal and the vegan meals got very high praise. Sam gave us her usual warm welcome and the waitresses did a wonderful job throughout the evening. Thank you for your hospitality and keep up the fantastic work.
What a lovely welcoming pub with fantastic food and amazing service. We enjoyed a fabulous evening with such exceptional service and food that I am writing this review immediately after leaving.
We booked a dog friendly table so our fur baby, Ruby could come with us and received the most friendly welcome of any place we've eaten. You can even order your dog a meal or snack to be served at your table. Ruby had steak with vegetables and gravy, which she enjoyed very much. Our fish pie and burger were beautifully cooked and absolutely delicious.
Thank you so much to everyone for making our evening so very special. We look forward to seeing you all again the next time we are staying in Knayton.
Quite a journey for us for a Sunday lunch but it was more than worth it. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The Tim Taylor’s Landlord was superb which was a good sign. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday Lunches. Large portions and everything beautifully cooked. Will definitely return when in the area.
second visit - this time Sunday lunch. very freshly cooked roast- great yorkshire puddings - excellent and friendly service - highly recommend
6 of us had a wonderful Saturday night the food was gorgeous so tasty and well presented. Very friendly staff good service beautiful deserts will hopefully be back soon 10 out of 10 well worth a visit
Two of us came for sunday lunch yesterday. Delicious meal, very friendly staff. Really enjoyed our meal.
Came here last minute and even tho they were really busy they managed to fit us in for some food. The food was fantastic the staff were very welcoming and friendly they couldn’t do enough for us. Would definitely recommend
Really friendly staff , good value for money on their special nights and good range of normal menu. Pleasant surroundings.
We had been to thirsk on a day out from Penrith and found this gem tucked away but easy to find, there were three of us , They were busy but found us a space with plenty of room , We all chose the Sunday Roast Beef , with Mash , Carrots , Cabbage,Broccoli , Yorkshire's ,Roast Potatoes , and Plenty of Gravy ,and an extra portion of Cauliflower Cheese . WHAT a cracking meal it was , the Beef was cooked to perfection as was everything else and large portion's , One of our group said could we help with her dinner , but when she cut into it , she said , forget the help your having none of this , We have toured the length and breadth of Britain this year , and i can honestly say This is one of the best Sunday dinners yet , We could not manage a dessert as we were quite full , Anyone who reads my posts will know i tell it as it is , well this is one NOT to miss
