Truly Amazing!

This place is just the best. It boasts a cosy fire in the colder months. Really friendly staff, and the food is out of this world. Food is fresh local cooked food. We keep going back again and again and can't recommend it enough.

Excellent food, good service and good choice menu. We went on a Thursday evening and although it was a quiz night we were served with no bother at all. We stayed and did the quiz as well. We didn't win though.

Saturday evening, and when pre-booking, we were warned that there were two large parties in. We didn't realise that these would be all chattery women! The noise level in the fairly low ceiling dining room was incredible, however, we persevered. We mostly ordered from the specials board, an excellent range and choice of both starters and mains. Our party of... More

We love to visit a different pub for lunch every week and have a select few that are at the top of our list. This is one of them. If you want to enjoy a lovely plateful of beautifully cooked food, then this is the place for you. Chris and Di are delightful, friendly and very welcoming.

I hate going out for a meal and having a poor experience so asked a friend who dines out a lot for a local recommendation. She had no hesitation in advising us to try the Milbank Arms at Well. We arrived to a warm welcome on a nice quiet Thursday night. A good selection on the standard menu with more... More

wonderful proper pub in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, with roaring log fires and real ale, as well as a good selection of wine. Sunday lunch was splendid, with a good choice of menu, including meat, fish and vegetarian. A small warning, the portions are large, so there may not be room for an excellent pudding! The menu served... More

Advised by a local retailer to have lunch at the Milbank Arms and were not disappointed! Just walking through the door we felt it was our type of place. Very friendly landlord nothing seemed too much trouble. Menu good with plenty of specials - we both ate from the light lunch menu which was excellent value and very good quality.... More
