We stayed at the Lister arms on 23rd July 2014 and were given room 14 when we checked in which is separate from the pub. The first impressions of Malham and the Lister Arms were Wow. The journey up to the village of Malham has some beautiful outstanding scenery but once you arrive in the village it is the idyllic... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Lister Arms in mid July to do some walking in the area. The pub was pretty easy to find but be aware this is one of THE most popular villages in the Yorkshire Dales so on a nice weekend Malham was completely packed with visitors. We stayed in room 2 which is actually a... More

Stopped one night in room 11. Everything about this place is perfect. The accommodation, the food, the beer, and the location. Enjoyed a six mile walk to return to a drink in the beer garden at the rear or on the benches at the front of the building. We ate outside in the beer garden we were fortunate it was... More

We booked a table for 8pm on Sunday 12 July. I checked what food was available before we booked and was told that Sunday lunch would be available at that time. However, when we arrived we were told that it sells out at lunchtime. Also, there were 2 other meals on the menu which were also not available. Not great... More

What a shame that the bar could not cope with a busy Saturday evening's trade. I was in a group of 6 friends looking to have food and drink. We ordered separately, in singles and couples, to avoid issues with bill splitting. However, after 3 of us had ordered food the bar decided it was not going to take any... More

We arrived early and my wife was not feeling very well. All the staff could not have been more flexible, kind and attentive - and excellent service continued through our stay. The first room (14) we were offered was absolutely huge but smelt of cheesy feet and the windows could not be opened. We were therefore offered another room (11),... More

Stayed recently for a 3 night visit to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary - we received a very warm welcome. The bedroom was pleasant and overlooked the beer garden. Very small en-suite but was perfectly functional (no shaver socket though) and had a nice selection of toiletries although would have liked to have had some conditioner as i had left... More

Hello. Thank you for your comprehensive review of your recent stay with us. Very glad that you enjoyed your visit. I apologise we got your room bill wrong; it is easily fixed. It is a tricky one itemising bills, if we listed everything bills would be four pages long however when we don't it can be difficult to read. We... More

We decided to stay for a couple of nights on a whim when touring the area. Lovely building outside and nice rooms inside. Food very good. Bar area has rustic flagstones which are washed down every morning which keeps the place really clean - frequented by walkers during the day, so a wise arrangement. Breakfast was lovely -recommend the eggs... More

Had a lovely meal and a couple of pints outside. Pub was busy but got served quickly and food turned up in less than 10 mins. Much better value than the other pub in the village. A couple of vegetarian options too which was nice
