The Priests House :-
As seen on Yorkshire TVís _The Real Emmerdale, Where better to enjoy a relaxing meal than in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, especially in the fabulous Upper Wharfedale considered by many to be the most beautiful of Yorkshire_s valleys.
Nestled adjacent to the impressive ruins of Barden Tower and the Barden Bunk Barn, this historic grade 1 listed restaurant and outside tea terrace has a fine reputation for excellent cuisine. So much so that booking ahead is the only sure way of a guaranteeing a table in the small, quaint dining room.
Whether for a quiet meal, a private function, a medieval evening or for a very special wedding day, this is a quite special venue. From walking through the orchard, ducking through the 8 foot deep entrance way to the medieval dining room, with log fires, a dark oak beamed ceiling, candles and paned windows.
For ambience, this is the real thing.

WHY IT BECAME "BAD LUCK" FOR THE GROOM TO SEE BRIDE BEFORE THE CEREMONY
Until relatively recently, brides were considered the property of their father. Their futures and husbands were arranged without their consent. The marriage of an unattractive woman was often arranged with a prospective groom from another town without either of them having ever seen their prospective spouse. In more than one instance, when the groom saw his future wife, usually dressed in white, for the first time on the day of the wedding, he changed his mind and left the bride at the altar. To prevent this from happening, it became "bad luck" for the groom to see the bride on the day of the wedding prior to the ceremony.
