A lovely, warm and welcoming pub if you're visiting Malham. The menu has a good choice and is reasonable value and there are plenty of good ales at the bar. The pub is dog and walker friendly and all of the staff are accommodation. We thoroughly enjoyed eating and drinking in this pub.

It turned out that Beck Hall was an equally good option so we were not disappointed. Having had a look on Tripadviser to see what was available in Malham for dinner, we... More

We called in for lunch after visiting Malham Tarn and cove. The selection of food on offer was excellent as well as the quality. Fire was roaring away and the staff were very friendly. Made a wonderful end to our visit to Malham.

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...

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!
