Nice pub,food okay but my husband was a bit disappointed with the turkey,leek and ham pie. It was something that I have never seen before,just a small and I mean small piece of pastry on top of the small amount of the rest of it. I had the battered haddock which was alright but nothing to write home about. My... More

We went here for the first time, hearing some great things about it. It did not dissapoint. Both my hubby and I had Plum Spring Rolls to start and they were delicious. I had a lamb shank for main with Daufinouse pots and veg, it was perfectly cooked and so was the veg. My husband had the Special Burger with... More

I found the Milbank Arms through TripAdvisor. What a fantastic place and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. The food was superb and so much flavour, made with all fresh local ingredients. The staff were lovely and made you feel so welcome and it has such a lovely atmosphere. It is one place I will definitely be visiting again when... More

We have visited the Milbank Arms in Well at least 6 times now and every time it just gets better and better..... we always feel so welcome. The food is absolutely delicious (not small portions) and presented beautifully. My favourite main course is the Sea bass with caper butter.......... it is to die for! At the moment the asparagus is... More

This was not a problem as it was the same menu throughout. There was some nice specials on my husband had the goats cheese starter & my... More

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 recommendation was necessary.

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

We were greeted promptly and made to feel like welcome guests. I don't now when we will be in North Yorkshire again but we will make it a point... 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.
