The food was pleasant enough but nothing you wouldn't get in a 'cafe' for half the price. I had the scampi that was out of a packet, the chips were ok and the salad was drenched in some sort of dressing. My friend had the same opinion except for his fish that he said was good. His plate was covered... More

This is a really nice pub. We have been here a couple of times and the food is always good and freshly cooked. There is a nice village atmosphere to the place and it is always full. Well worth a visit.

This pub is a constant good place to eat, been a few times over the years and never had an off day. Set in the quaint village of Well at the bottom of the hill. 4 miles from Bedale, it doesn't overly offer anything different, but a friendly atmosphere and good pub grub.

Well is a pretty place and the Milbank Arms reflects the village. The owner and family and staff must be (no are) the most genuine friendly people you could be privileged to be served by. The pub has a lot of atmosphere and as for the food. The first advice is if you are going in the evening, don't eat... More

I chose to come here for a birthday meal as the place has some character and it's location is a picturesque little village. The choice of food was good with something for pretty much everybody and there was a specials board too which was inviting, We ordered and did not have to wait long for it to arrive, we were...

First impression, the barman was friendly and very welcoming. We had Burger Steak Special and a Feta & Olive salad with crusty bread. It may seem trivial but I hate the limp lettuce you are often served up in places, with no dressing at all. This was crisp and fresh with a lovely light dressing, topped with Feta, Olives, Onion,...
