It is more than pub grub but not quite fine dining...the best meal I have had in a pub in some years, nothing to complain about.

Went here for a meal midweek .. The standard was very high and all of our food was delicious . They had a good range of beers and warm spiced cider. Perfect after a long walk in the snowy hills. would highly recommend a visit here

Lovely food with good vegetarian options, food was well cooked and the bar staff suggested suitable wine which was well suited. The pub had a lovely atmosphere with a log fire and comfortable sitting area, and dog friendly.

After a good walk we called in for a late Sunday lunch steak pies were excellent as was the roast pork. We sat next to the log fire to warm back up. The staff were really friendly and helpful well worth a visit

On a cold January night, the Lister arms was a welcome sight . We sat in front of the fire, settled the dogs and settled in for the evening. The beer was excellent, Thwaites' Wainrights as was the food. We both had Steak and Ale pie and couldn't fault it. The fresh veg it came with were also very welcome.... More

I couldn't give them five stars as I didn't have a meal here but the menu looked good and the restaurant area looked nice. A chap on the table next to me had a wedge of the pork pie as a bar snack and it looked brilliant. We were just putting our coats on to leave otherwise I would have... More
