Just spent one night at the Listers whilst visiting the lovely village of Malham in North Yorks. The rooms were very cosy, both the dinner and breakfast was beautifully prepared and served in very pleasant " bistro " type surroundings and the range of beers in the bar were excellent. The staff were very welcoming and went out of their... More

Plenty of space to sit indoors and out, on picnic tables on grass and log fire respectively. Good range of Thwaites and guest ales; try the 'thirds': three thirds-of-pints to sample each of the Thwaites ales at same price of a pint. Traditional food menu; we had fish sharing platter that was generously portioned. You'll struggle to be disappointed!

Had a lovely mid week stay with friends at The Lister Arms . There are some great walks just out of the hotel , nice room but if staying again would upgrade to a feature room. The food was good [ you must try the belly pork]. Staff were very helpful and being given fresh milk in a flask anytime... More

Had a lovely one night stay in the Lister Arms. It is well situated on a village green with a few shops etc nearby. There is a great walk to Malham Cove which I would definitely recommend doing. Our room was lovely, very spacious and comfortable. The food was good, with a nice choice of ales. Breakfast was the only... More

First impressions of this hotel were wonderful. However, the next morning a series of events made us quickly change our minds. The shower door was completely jammed and when we told a staff member that we were disappointed not to be able to shower before breakfast her reply was quite alarming. She stated that they knew about this and had... More

The Lister Arms is great for people who want a short stay break within the Yorkshire National Park and caters very well for walkers etc. It was unfortunate that when we stayed the weather was really hot and sultry. We had an upgraded Superior Room, very well furnished with a comfortable large bed. the BIG PROBLEM was that the Gothic... More

Called in here for an evening meal and wasn't disappointed. Wasn't particularly hungry but fancied just about everything on the menu...the worst thing about this place was choosing what to eat. I plumped for a steak and ale pie, the Mrs had haddock and chips...one of the best steak and ale pies I've ever had, likewise the fish and chips...never... More

Charming cozy Inn with a lit fire. Food is absolutely gorgeous. Breakfast with strawberries and open for special demands. I asked for cheese and had lovely Cheddar, my son had Bacon buns even if they were not on the breakfast menu. The staff is very service minded, smiling and doing their utmost to satisfy any demand. Charming. The place is... More

We had a family wedding taking place nearby and we booked 9 rooms for two nights (in total 16 stayed) and the hotel could not be faulted. On arrival we were all made to feel very welcome. All our rooms were lovely and the finishing touches of the fresh milk along with the "Yorkshire" mugs were excellent. The bonus feature... More
