Location superb. Booked in early with Great welcome. Room fine. Bar and Restaurant superb. The quality of food and presentation was way above what I expected. Reasonably priced. The Chef certainly knows their stuff. Well worth the visit if staying in the area. Even if only for the food. Well done.

My wife and I have just today Wed 1st July 2015 returned from a 3 night stay at The Craven Arms. The room was small, but immaculate, the hotel itself is lovely a mixture of olde worldy, and modern, with a nice beer garden to the rear, and seating in the front to enjoy the beautiful country scene, and the...

I support all the previous excellent reviews. If you're in the area do give it a try. Doesn't look much from the outside but inside is a gem from the layout, the decoration and the food is superb! Salt beef Wellington was great. One tiny complaint from my eighty year old mother was she found it difficult to eat her... More

We visited craven arms for an anniversary dinner and I must admit the food was well below average and the prices were a joke. We ordered 2 fish pies. 1 burger. 3 trio of pork and a beef wellington. The fish pies had no fish in. the burger was a lump of fat and grease and the trio of pork... More

We are staying at a lovely little B&B in Giggleswick (review to follow) and the owner offered to book us a table at the Craven Arms. When we first arrived at the Craven Arms we were a little concerned that we might be under dressed as it looked very upmarket. However we were pleasantly surprised, the restaurant area is very...

Five of us had one night here at the end of our first day's cycling. After an initial mix up about room bookings, which would have involved two friends sharing a double bed, this was soon resolved and our three rooms were comfortable. The owner was very friendly and the food very good. Wifi was a little erratic, however this... More

Have just been to this hotel and although it is in a fantastic setting and the rooms and staff are lovely it is on the busy A road so there is traffic all day and night so cannot sleep with window open. The scenery is wonderful and the staff cannot do enough to help.

Impulse booking for a midweek treat that turned out to be a really good choice. We have had mixed results here before but this evening was great. Good selection and good service. We even had to remind them to add the cost of wine on! Would go here again without hesitation.

It all started so well. We had booked a table for 18 as a post climbing meal & one was beautifully set out for us. We were asked to pre-order our food which we all did. However, the inevitable problem of 'jus' reared its ugly head as these usually contain wine & I have a serious allergy to wine! So... More
