Just a ten minute drive from Skipton 'The Tempest Arms' is set in the gateway to the desolate hamlet, by the name of Eslack. With mis-matched chairs, hand pulled ales and roaring fires the restaurant offers a homely feeling.
Perhaps the only downside to the restaurant is the half an hour wait for your meal to arrive; yet it is not a disappointment. Ham platters, side salads, carrots in lemon butter, large portions and crisp golden chips leave you feeling thoroughly satisfied and the half an hour wait is forgotten. Of course there is always the option of a dessert if you can find the room in your probably now full belly. Mouth-watering plum flavoured sorbet to delicious white chocolate cheese cake and back to chewy giant meringues with cream and ice cream.
Although 'The Tempest Arms' isn't just a restaurant, it is much more a restaurant-come-pub-come-inn. If a three course, large portion meal isn't for you then how about a packet of crisps and a pint of hand pulled ale; perhaps a cup of Yorkshire tea, in the relaxed quiet pub area.
A unique asset to this restaurant-come-pub-come-inn is the sales it offers. Mugs, postcards and walking sticks, all found in display cabinets dotted around the building; making a walk around 'The Tempest Arms' become a treasure hunt for a souvenir. Whether for you or your friends back home.
So if you feel like a night out away from the rowdiness of Skipton's 'The Castle' or are looking for somewhere to enjoy a formal meal at friendly prices, 'The Tempest Arms' is defiantly somewhere for you to consider.
