Details

The Old Star is a 17thC ex-coaching inn run as a pub until 1983 and now run as a guest house. It is situated in West Witton. It still retains original features such as the mounting block outside and the stables opposite, whilst the lounge and dining-room have the original oak beams exposed. We offer an excellent English breakfast using local and homemade products while lighter or vegetarian options are also available.

West Witton is a village of great antiquity and was recorded in the Domesday Book as Witun (village in a wood). It is in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and is an ideal centre for walking, cycling and touring the Dales. On one side the village is dominated by Penhill while to the other a lane winds down to the unspoiled River Ure. There are 2 excellent pubs, both of which sell real ales and good food. We also have a very friendly and well stocked village shop which sells newspapers.

We are no longer licensed but you are welcome to bring your own drinks.
