Called in for a meal whilst stopping at the Buck in Malham. The Lister looks very inviting from the outside, and we were not disappointed. The interior is lovely, just as a traditional pub should be. Service was friendly and very efficient. The meals were very,very good, as was the range and quality of the real ales on offer. The... More

We completed a nice circular walk to the Cove, the Tarn and down to Goredale Scar on a crisp November Sunday. This place was the first that we came back to in the village, and we were drawn in by the promise of an open fire. We found a seat near it, in very comfortable chairs, and ordered drinks and... More

Dropped in on a dales cycle ride on a fairly brisk November day. The mushroom soup, "home-made" bread and "home-made" pie were all delicious. The mulled cider was very good too. Nice place, great atmosphere and excellent food. Glad we dropped in!

The food at this venue is first rate with each ingredient of prime quality. We had the meat sharing platter consisting of superb ham, lean duck, best pork pie, super hock, fresh bread, unusually good chips, fresh homemade coleslaw not to mention Rosies Pig which is a daft name for a fab moreish cloudy cider.

After a brisk walk to Gordale Scar, we were more than ready for lunch. The Lister Arms looked a likely choice. It took a while to attract the barman's attention but our drinks were served promptly. However, it took some time to drag him away from chatting to other guests to place our food order. Our orders arrived after a... More

The Listers Arms is a warm-welcoming, cosy pub. I took a liking to the club sandwich and my parents did like the furniture! My parents also enjoyed the pies and the reasonably priced alcohol. It's as five out of five from me!

The food is home cooking at its best. Just around the corner from the YHA in Malham if you have arrived too late to book food. Cosy fires. Very popular, tables get quickly taken you may have to stand and wait a while but its worth it. Good selection of drinks.

Walked in on a wet miserable tea time, to a lovely open fire. A good selection of real ale at the bar. I opted for the Main Line bitter what a great choice! Me and the wife had the Haddock and Chips which was delicious and well presented. We also appreciated being able to take the dog with us.
