We came across this place by accident whilst strolling along the river. We had spent some time at Brimham rocks and was looking for a nice pint and something to eat. Pateley Bridge seemed to be closing for the day, and as we don't eat meat, and my husband is on a special diet were feeling a bit miffed, so decided to walk along the river. I made a joke about finding a pub as we were walking out into the countryside, when lo and behold we came across a sign welcoming us to Harefield, so we followed the path under the arch, to some steep steps overlooking what seemed to be an old tennis court, surrounded by Greek garden statues (which I love). At the top of the steps through a small gate was a very pleasant pub garden with lovely views. On entering the pub we noticed an extensive fish menu, and pondered wether to stay for a meal when greeted by a very hospitable lady who poured us an amazing local ale. The decor was very quirky and welcoming, so we decided to stay for a meal when the kitchen opened. My husband and son went for something plain, and as the fish and chips were cooked in rapeseed oil suitable for a low fat diet, and I had the salmon teriyaki (which my son regretted not having), and it was amazing, the salmon was cooked perfectly, just melted in your mouth. My son followed with a plum crumble which he said had warming spices with fresh custard, the poshest crumble he'd ever eaten, and very reasonably priced. If only we lived closer. Do go! You won't regret it.
