Just a little bit about us “the Roe family and the history River House”
Alex and I have over 20 years experience in the hospitality industry. After we first met at catering college in Scarborough, we then went on to work in Chester, and returned to Yorkshire in 1997 to work in the city of York.
We moved to the beautiful village of Malham in the June of 2004 with our two daughters, Abigail and Amelia, having bought River House. Soon after opening we were awarded 4 stars and a Breakfast Award by the AA and in 2007 we were awarded a Dinner Award also by the AA which we still hold today. we always strive to use local produce where we can at River House. from local eggs, some from our own hens, meat, to Yorkshire tea, honey and preserves.
New to River House in 2015 is that we have been awarded 4 star silver by the AA a fantastic surprise.
We also got awarded in 2015 by Yorkshire in bloom a silver gilt award for the garden at River House.
More about the history of the house can be found on the history pages on our website
