Great service (with smiles) as always from Graham and staff. Just love the cosy atmosphere, good range of ales (Dent brewery kamikaze was our choice, yum!) and food always excellent and fresh. It's always busy so booking a couple of days in advance is recommended.

I went to The Strickland Arms for lunch with about 10 friends just before Christmas. Despite being very busy the staff were helpfull friendly & appeared unrushed as they made sure everyone was looked after. All our meals were served efficiently with no one left waiting with an empty place setting whilst other peoples meals went cold. The food was... More

We're locals and are regulars at Wednesday quiz nights. On Sunday we walked to the Stricky and can honestly say the service and food were excellent, an improvement on a year ago. Thank you Nicola and the rest of the staff for a great lunchtime experience.

We have visited the Strickland Arms, which is close to Sizergh Castle several times over the years and have always come away satisfied; Its a very popular pub and reservations are sometimes needed on the weekend as it gets very busy. We have always enjoyed their roast dinners on Sunday and they also cater well for vegetarians. We recently called... More

The Strickland Arms is a great place to eat - or just to drop in for a drink and a warm by the open fires. It's a lovely period building which is owned by the National Trust, which means the tenant restauranteurs have to work hard to make a go of it. Ther have been different teams over the years,...

Went on New Years day and had a great meal. A good selection for children and Fish and Chips comes in 3 portion sizes. Puddings a bit expensive but only had room to share with another so not as bad value.
