"Nestled in the shadow of the impressive ruins of Barden Tower, a grade 1 listed building with superb views of the valley and surrounding hills, The Priests House has a fine reputation for excellent cuisine and service. Whether for a quiet meal, an intimate and exclusive wedding, a private function, a music night or a genuine medieval banquet this is a quite unique North Yorkshire venue. Both the House and the "Old Chapel" are steeped in history and charm, retaining most original features such as real log fires, dark oak beamed ceilings and paned windows. As soon as you set foot inside you know this is a place with a special ambience."
