4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

We stayed one night in Room 11, which was a big comfortable room with a charming rustic feel to it. It was also lovely and clean, and despite our concerns there might be some noise from the pub we didn't hear a thing. Wi-fi reception was not possible in the room so it meant any emails etc had to be... More

Visited this pub for lunch after walking around malham, I had previously looked it up as we needed somewhere dog friendly. This pub takes dogs only in the bar area they have a seperate more formal dining area where they are not permitted. The menu was great and varied offered all your usual pub favourites along with a few different... More

My fiancée and I stayed at the lister arms last night. The rooms are completed to a very high standard and the pub was equally as good, with great beers & food, and much room to relax in, especially on the lawn at the front. We only have one real criticism of the place, however in my book it's a... More

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at the Lister Arms and can't praise it and the staff enough, nothing was too much trouble, the beer was very good as was the food, we ate there all 4 nights. The room was very comfortable, clean and spacious and we will definitely be returning for another holiday in the... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Room 5 was large but spoilt be the tiny en-suite shower room which was in desperate need of upgrading - mould and damp smell. Food - ate here on the 3 nights we stayed and could not fault. Service great. However it lacked something - perhaps the personal touch.

Visited the Lister twice on our trip to the Dales and loved the place. The setting is excellent and sitting out front overlooking the green in the sun you just didn't want to leave. On both visits the staff were very friendly and efficient and had more to say than just taking your order and giving you change. Unfortunately we... More

The Lister Arms is in a stunning location overlooking the green, and river. Our room was very spacious and welcoming, with nice big windows that opened up to let fresh air in. Very well decorated and maintained, and what i would expect for the price paid! Regarding the pub, again very well looked after with fantastic food, and a great... More

We didn't stay here but we did stay in the village, which is lovely and a great centre for walking and visiting the Dales. We ate dinner twice in the restaurant at the Lister Arms and had lunch in the bar on another day. On all occasions the food was well cooked and well presented, and service was attentive and... More

This was our second visit to the Lister Arms and we weren't disappointed . The hotel is very comfortable as are the bedrooms, tea and coffee facilities with home made biscuits. The food is first class both breakfast and our evening meal were faultless. The staff are brilliant especially Caroline nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be returning.
