Visited the Lister Arms during a short stay in Malham. I didn't eat here but did see other people eating and the food looked OK and a little cheaper than the Buck Inn. Having said that choose not to eat here because of the price and drove out of Malham to have evening meal. There is a good selection of... More

We were camping and walking in malham and visited the pub for an evening meal. It was very busy and we soon found a table. Staff were friendly and helpful. It was not your usual menu for pub grub and there was a 'specials board'. As an adult family of six there was a meal to suit everyones taste. I... More

We had a lovely meal with a couple of friends. The food was excellent, but unfortunately the service was a little slow. Once we had completed our main course we had the feeling that we had been forgotten about. This shouldn't put you off though as the quality of the food was excellent.

We turned up without a reservation, and were invited to a restaurant table immediately. Delicious food that we all enjoyed, in a friendly atmosphere. Great beer choices too.

Great pub, with loads of guest ales and a warm fire what more do you need. The staff are friendly and efficient. A wide selection of drinks (not just ales). Lovely food at a great price. (Better price and quality food then The buck down the road).

Called here for lunch Sunday afternoon. My husband phoned first and booked a table. He enquired about disabled access and was told there was. No problem getting his mother in and out of the pub and there was more than enough room once inside. However, she struggled in the toilet saying that is was very small, that the toilet itself...

Dropped in for dinner as we were passing. Service was good and the food, beer battered haddock with chunky chips and mushy peas, was excellent

There was nothing we disliked about this pub - what a find. We ate there for three nights and had a few drinks too but what was lovely was the fact we had lots of games to choose from which my daughter loved and the food was outstanding. The staff were just excellent and we will be back next year.... More

A friend recommended the Lister Arms as he lives in Yorkshire and visits often to dine. The food did not disappoint with an excellent ham hock terrine, a steak dish in a mushroom sauce and a lovely white chocolate cheesecake with fresh strawberries. The pub has an excellent range of ales and I was introduced to the ales of the... More

Above average pub food. Some flavourings a little sweet or bland. But all in all an enjoyable meal. Service good. Busy night but completely under control. Thanks.
