A little pub history
Plompton was originally owned by Eldred de Plumpton, who passed ownership of the hamlet down over seven centuries through generations of his family. Owned by private hands for so long, The Kestrel was only the second inn to open in the area.
Charming local accommodation
Our 10 bedroom Innkeeper's Lodge frequently welcomes travellers to the area. It's our local charm that attracts golfers and ramblers, as well as diners and drinkers from Plompton and nearby Harrogate, Spofforth and Pannal. We also welcome business and leisure travellers to enjoy some of the best bedrooms and accommodation in Plompton.
Make a day of it
Our attractive inn has ample gardens and is set in the tranquil landscape surrounding Plompton Rocks, an important environmental site. Many visitors to Knaresborough Castle make a point of stopping off here for refreshment.
