Comments by walkers who stayed at The Postgate Inn in Egton Bridge on The Coast to Coast Path
The owner could not have been more welcoming. We arrived after a long day on the Coast to Coast. The last 2-3 hours in torrential rain. We were soaked and she went out of her way to make sure we got everything dry.
Comfortable room and the meal we had was excellent.

Slightly quirky in the nicest way. The staff were very helpful staff when I arrived early from Blakey and I enjoyed sitting in the sunshine with a pint of cider waiting for Karen and the Sherpa Van to arrive. The pub dog, Peanut and Riley the cat kept me entertained. They then made us a delicious ploughman’s lunch even though by then the kitchen was officially closed. Our room was comfortable and dinner in the evening was very good indeed. The next morning Charlie the pheasant came by for his breakfast while Karen was waiting for the van. We very much enjoyed our stay here.
It is in a very good location since it is an easy and pleasant walk on from Glaisdale and ditto for the walk into Grosmont the next morning. As another walker observed, it warms you up for the climb out of Grosmont.

We stayed at the Horseshoe but a bit of research before we started C2C had told us to try the Postgate for dinner. We were very pleased with the choice. The best meal we had on the whole C2C walk.

My first instinct, when planning the trip, was to stay in Grosmont, but I couldn't find anywhere except the Grosmont House Hotel, which I have tried twice and will never frequent again.

The welcome was good and the room more than adequate. The dinner in the evening was excellent and good value for money.

I didn't have lunch, but those who did were very complimentary and the portions were gargantuan.

Saying in Egton Bridge makes the last day longer, but I still got to RHB by 3.30pm. You also get your muscles warmed up before the 1 in 3 climb out of Grosmont.

We were welcomed by everyone in the Inn. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The evening meal while slightly more expensive than we had anticipated was well worth the money and was a great treat on our penultimate night. Will be back soon to savour more of the food and hospitality

Arrived about 2.15 p.m. - were just going to have a drink but caught sight of the Ploughman's Lunch. It was irresistable and tasted as good as it looked. Comfortable,ensuite room.
Best evening meal on the coast to coast - the Postgate Inn menu is not 'pub grub' and the portion sizes are not overpowering. If you want a special meal near the end of the walk this is the place to eat.

The menu was excellent - I've never seen so many fish dishes and the food was brilliant. If you're not staying and you want to eat here you should probably book in advance, but it's worth it. If you're staying they will hold a table for you.

Unfortunately we didn't stay here. If the breakfast had been anything like as good as the dinner we had in the evening we would have floated the last 17 miles. An absolute dream.

Did not stay or eat here this time but have eaten here previously and popped in for another look this time. A real gastropub only matched on the walk by those at Osmotherley.

Made very welcome by Mark & Peanut the dog.
Good beer - Evening meals are large portions & very well cooked - Thanks guys for a great evening

Good food, friendly owners. Comfortable room with lots of hot water. We'd stay there again.

A fantastic menu, well cooked and presented, if a little pricey (hey, I'm used to paying for food in London so was surprised to see some of the prices here). What a shame though, that the room was quite a disappointment. The most expensive stay of the whole 17 days (we had rest days!) and we had gaffer tape holding parts of the bathroom together. The bath was cracked and raised and had bits missing. Had to get out of the cold shower & get re-dressed to go downstairs & ask for the boiler to be turned on. Not really what you're expecting, especially as we paid £69 for the room (we thought we'd booked a £59 room). I'd say walk the extra 2k and stop in Grosmont.

We arrived on a very wet August afternoon and were made to feel very welcome. Shelly took our wet clothes to dry and although our room was basic, it was en suite, with a shower that did work and was comfortable. We were quite happy. We were even happier that night.
My family ( wife, son, dauhter in law and two grandchildren) came to meet us here for a meal. Rarely, in a pub of this size, have I ever seen such a varied and adventurous menu !! Each of us tried something different and each of us agreed that it was superb. I never did meet the chef, but whoever he or she is, the food was marvellous. The sweets we had were also fantastic. The best food I had anywhere on the c to c.
It wasn't cheap ' pub grub' but it was well worth the money !!

We visited the Postgate in June 2004. First impressions were not good. On arrival the pub was shut and we were left outside in the pouring rain for 25 mins before we could make anyone hear us. Our double room was a dissapointment. Outdated and in need of refurbishment. The evening meal was good though very expensive - £4.95 for apple cumble !! The one redeeming feature was the good atmosphere in the bar in the evening - mainly due to England playing and winning their second game of Euro 2004. We were charged £5.95 each for our packed lunch - again too expensive. We have stayed in some fantastic B&Bs on the C2C this wasn't one of them far too expensive for the standard of accommodation - recommend you walk the extra mile and stay in Grosmont.

The hotel changed hands at the end of 2002. It is now really a restaurant with bar and rooms rather than a pub. Very friendly reception, comfortable rooms and decent shower. Limited drying facilities. Excellent beer and a dinner to defeat even the most hungry walker. Portions are enormous and the vegetables never ending. It is worth leaving room for one of the excellent sweets though.
Peter Bradley, left on 18 September 2003
The room at the Postgate was a little outdated and in need of refurbishment - however talking to the owner in the evening this is on the cards over the winter months.
The food however is out of this world - we manage all three courses and throughly enjoyed every mouthful. My compliments to the Chef.
Egton Bridge is a flat 1.5 miles from Grosmont and a good alternative stopoff for C2Cers
Keith and Tanya, left on 09 September 2003
Enjoyed the stay, but not up to other similar places we stayed at during the walk in June. Twin room was cramped, and the shower didnt work. Evening meal was very good.
Glen, left on 02 July 2003
A nice pub, with friendly staff and good food and drink. Good for the last day. Grosmont has possible railway interest and is larger, but this is more rural. May 2003
Sally and Michael Woodley, left on 14 June 2003
Thanks forr making my last night on coast 2 coast so comfortable and effortless. Very cosy bar & dining area. Cheers!
