Located on Railway street in the picturesque North Yorkshire village of Slingsby, six miles west of North Yorkshire market town of Malton on the B1257 road to Hovingham, Helmsley and the North Yorkshire Moors, and just sixteen miles from the historic city of York, the Grapes Inn is well located for tourists or walkers visiting the coast, the North Yorkshire Moors, local market towns and tourist attractions in the Ryedale area.
The Grapes Inn is a Grade II listed building with a great history. The deeds go back as far as 1749, with an entry referring to a ‘cottage house or tenement with a brew house’. It appears that the present building was probably built or re-built in its present form shortly after that.
Featured in The Yorkshire Post’s ‘Pub of the Week in June 2013, the Post noted ‘You know when you walk into a place and every sense screams that you’ve stumbled across a classic in the making? Well that’s the Grapes Inn, Slingsby.’
Combining a memorable dining experience with the ambience of a traditional English pub, the Grapes also features Theakstons, Black Sheep, Copper Dragon and Timothy Taylor’s Landlord on tap in the cosy, welcoming bar. A short and simple menu includes smoked haddock and spinach, home-made burger and chips, and the meltingly tender steak and ale pie. The Grapes Inn is able to cater for every special occasion, such as Christmas, Easter, Mothers day and Valentines Day. We also are happy to provide the pub for weddings receptions, wakes and parties.
