We'd had a long drive and arrived in Malham late. We headed to the Lister Arms for some food and found a lovely little table in the bar. Good choice of food and quality was good. Chips were a little greasy but everything else was perfectly fine. We returned the next night for a drink and regretted not eating there... More

Had a great meal today. Came up from wakefield. All four of us had fish and chips which was excellent. The service was too notch to say they were busy. Came back later after a walk had coffee and cakes which were of a similar standard.

Once great old Pub. Now not as good. Why do staff not listen to order requests. Why do chefs have to put things on the plate you request left off? May have forgiven faults if the ordered Steak had been good but alas only ok. This is a great area to visit. Pub setting beautiful. Thwarts, have spoiled the memory... More

My husband and I ate here on the 18th & 19th of March, we didn't intend to eat in the same location two nights in a row but after the first night we agreed it was definitely worth a return. Great staff, lovely atmosphere and good food at a reasonable cost.

A family party of seven of us enjoyed a great Sunday lunch on Mother's day at the Lister Arms, having booked online earlier in the week. The historic building is in a stunning setting, just off the main road into the centre of Malham and the interior is very welcoming with a real log fire in the bar. Food is... More

I have only been for a drink and it seemed hospitable and nice clean surroundings. Really wished i had read the reviews and stayed here instead of the Buck in of which was horrendous hospitality, food and prices.
