Attended a close friend's father's funeral here and a review is a must. The place was packed to the rafters but the staff were welcoming, attentive and just kept on going. The food was just lovely, fresh and plenty of it. We will return hopefully in happier circumstances but I felt my... read more

Just been to the Milbank Arms for lunch with my mother in law. The atmosphere was good, friendly staff with personalities. The food was excellent, roast beef cooked how you wanted it and they were flexible about having a starter as a main. The crunchie Sunday desert was awesome teamed with good espresso. A good beer selection as well so... More

Popped-in for lunch in transit to a weekend in North Yorkshire ...... well worth it. Really nice Inn / Restaurant, well-presented, cosy atmosphere and quite classy. Onion soup was a little underwhelming (a little watery) ..... Beef Bourguignon (a Special) was exceptional.

We visited this pub for the first time last night and have the most lovely meal. The food was fantastic and had puddings to die for (we had the sticky toffee pudding and hot chocolate fudge cake they were both incredible). We had the best service from our waitress thank you. The price was really reasonable. The Milbank Arms really... More

We visited this lovely little traditional village pub following a recommendation from a family member. The pub is very welcoming with dark wood beams, a roaring fire creating a great atmosphere. The menu provides an excellent choice of starters, mains and desserts with specials on the board too. Our food was cooked to perfection, just as we ordered and the... More

We stayed in the Village of Well on Fridad the 13th of February and visited the Milbank Arms. The staff were really friendly and welcoming as were the locals who were chatty and very nice.
