About Us

We would like to welcome you to The Black A Moor Inn, our family-run establishment. Our beautifully quirky country pub/restaurant/B&B is on the edge of the charming city of Ripon, in the heart of the golden triangle, near to the popular tourist towns of Harrogate and York. 

We pride ourselves on our traditional home cooked food, friendly service, and great selection of real ales from Yorkshire. All situated within calming décor, roaring log fires and comfy seating which provide a friendly and relaxing atmosphere.

Our food menus change on a regular basis – reflecting our use of fresh seasonal British produce, skilfully prepared by our kitchen team. We source all of our produce locally where ever possible and try to do our best to look after the environment by recycling as much as we can. 

From the bar we serve up a great range of drinks including a regularly changing selection of real ales (local ales from some of Yorkshire’s finest breweries often feature on our bar).

We’re also very proud of our ever changing wine list & our small selection of Single Malts. Unless you are local or enjoying a walk or cycle in the area, (we are just off and about half-way along the Morecambe to Bridlington Coast-To-Coast cycle ride) the best way to get here is by car (other cycle routes and footpaths run close to the pub). We have plenty of room in our private car park. Dogs are very welcome in our snug where there are biscuits and blankets for making themselves at home.

“Sleep is the best meditation.” – Dalai Lama

We have five beautiful en suite letting bedrooms, each with their own character. All our rooms have beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.

Whether it’s a weekend away with the other half or a long term business stay, we’ll be more than happy to accommodate you.  



We offer free room hire and have a number of options for private functions. We work with you to specifically tailor all events to your individual needs.

We are also lucky enough to have two large car parks, which makes us a great alternative to the busy town centre. 

Our snug is a small room just off our main bar area. It can comfortably seat 10 people for a more formal function and around 20 standing for more casual events. For more information on how we can tailor make a package for your event, please get in touch

The stables is our larger function room, this is a completely private area which can seat around 25 for a sit-down meal. It is a very versatile space and has also been used for presentations, displays, charity sales, performances and buffets. If you would like to speak with us about availability and options, please get in touch

Our spectacular vaulted ceiling restaurant is an extremely popular space for larger events such as wedding receptions and can comfortably seat around 60 people.
