Perfect for lunch!

We came here after walking the cove and gordale scar! We saw pictures on instagram and decided before we got here that we were going to eat here after exploring! As it was a sunny day we didnt fancy a big sunday roast so we opted for a butterfy chicken dish with salad and chips and also a regular... read more

We had a meal in here whilst staying in Malham and the food was really good. There are pricey dishes on the menu but there are also cheaper dishes, so there really is good choice depending on your budget. The drink prices are expensive but it is typical in both pubs in Malham. Friendly bar staff and waiting staff, plus... More

I have been going to The Listers for several years and have never been disappointed. I haven't visited for about 12 months, so today we went for lunch outside after a walk. The setting and service were great as always, but unfortunately the food was a little lacking. I had the fish finger sandwich, which was served in such think... More

Brilliant location in centre of village, lovely public bar, staff helpful but feel it has a captive audience. Beer was really good though. Had burger tbh felt it was average and when you add the sauces/pickles came to £17 the following day had a seafood special at £13 which was lovely

Had a couple of meals here while staying in Malham. The pies were very nice but would have like a better choice of veg with them as just offered mushy peas or peas. The Risotto was very nice and the desserts were great.

Throughly enjoyed a hearty meal after walking in Malham with the kids and dog. Sat in garden at the back. Think it was about 2pm by the time we got there. Found a table no problem. Lovely food and very relaxed atmosphere. Definitely will go back.

I dined here on my own - checking out which restaurants/pubs to recommend to customers who come to Malham on a Dog Walking Holiday. I had the sea food linguine - very tasty. Dogs are welcome in the bar and garden.

Great food there was a nice choice and some lovely puddings. I was really surprised when I ordered onion rings and they were real onion rings made with real onion and batter not your shop brought rubbish. Was nice to sit outside in the garden. We went 2 afternoons in a row as the food and the whole experience was... More

We have no criticism of the staff who were friendly and tried to be helpful, so this is more a criticism of the system they are running. Go here for a meal if you enjoy queuing at the bar to order, and if you are happy to eat anything exactly as described on the menu with no variation. I am... More
