Just arrived home after a one night stay, the welcome was warm and after checking in we were given a flask of cold milk to keep in our room (better than the little pots of UHT). Room was lovely and very welcoming . The bathroom had a great shower. Had an evening meal which was good and the service was... More

Our twin room was really nice, very clean and had very comfortable beds. The evening meal was very good especially after a few pints of a great... More

Our room was a reasonable size for a pub this old, spotlessly clean and with a decent sized shower. Nice decor. Large menu choice for breakfast in... More

Have just spent two nights at the lovely Lister Arms in the pretty village of Malham. What a charming, warm and stylish place this is. We ate there twice, once in the cosy bar and on the night of my birthday in the restaurant. The food and service were excellent and I can't recommend this venue highly enough. The room,... More
