We stayed for 2 nights during a snowy spell, and had a great break! Our room was very warm, comfortable and clean, as well as lovely and spacious. We decided to eat in the restaurant both nights, and the food was top notch on each occasion. We tried the Sunday lunch, the steak, a cheese and bacon burger and the... More

After a snowy walk what a delight it was to come into this cosy and friendly pub. The seat in front of the open fire was especially welcome! Really enjoyed an excellent Sunday roast and a glass of mulled wine. We will definitely be back.

My friend Helen and I have just spent a Friday night at this fabulous establishment. We were greeted by friendly faces, served with amazing food, warmed by roaring fires and had the most wonderful peaceful nights sleep, waking to a gentle sprinkling of snow and a hearty full Yorkshire breakfast.

On snowy winters night in the middle of January we ventured out for dinner at the Lister Arms. We weren't disappointed, a warm log fired atmosphere with a great choice drinks.

Called in for lunch here and were met by a friendly landlord in a lovely old fashioned British pub. Open fires were used and dogs were made most welcome. There was a great choice of hand pumped beers over the bar plus the normal bottled beers, lager and soft drinks. We didn't have wine, but the wine list appeared extensive... More

This wonderful, warm, welcoming pub was at the end of our blustery Sunday walk and as they allow dogs, we bundled in to be greeted by smiling staff, mulled cider and cozy open fires.
