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.

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 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. The real ale (Black Sheep) was really well kept and the food was fantastic. The prices were really reasonable and we had a really, really... More

We had a fantastic Friday evening, great food, drink and company. We were made welcome on arrival and enjoyed selecting our food over a drink at the bar. Quality food and generous portions. Left with a warm feeling!

As well as the food being 1st class (all home cooking) the beer (black sheep) and wine were very good too and all reasonably priced. Plus importantly all... More
