The Kestrel, a country pub in Knaresborough
We’ve got everything you need from a country pub near you.
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.
Our menus are full of hearty favourites and country pub classics, as well as our seasonal dishes, and we’ll be ready with a well-stocked bar, including cask ales, fine wines and British gin to suit very taste - which will taste all the better when enjoyed either in our beautiful gardens or by our crackling log fires.
Charming country pubs in lovely locations
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.
Whether you’re out walking your dog or just exploring the local area, there’s always plenty to do around The Kestrel.
