The fact that dogs are welcome in certain areas means you will always have our custom whatever the weather. But I would really like to say such a big THANK... More

Our first visit and it won't be our last. We had a very enjoyable Sunday roast, the food was lovely particularly the home cooked Yorkshire puddings. We brought our own gluten free gravy but there was no need as they made some up for us. The main positive was that every member of staff that we interacted with was genuinely... More

Having eaten in the Rustic Arms on a few occasions now and always had great food and service we decided to take the family there for Bonfire Night. We arrived early so we could eat before the display. The food was amazing as usual but I was horrified at how crowded the garden was with people wanting to watch the... More

Hi Mel, thank you for you review. We are pleased you enjoyed the food that was on bonfire night and yes there was rather a large crowd. We must say it is free entry to everyone and you never quiteknow how many people will be turning up. From this experience we will be moving the bonfire next year so that... More

My fiancé and I, my brother, sister-in-law and our 2 dogs visited here for Sunday tea after a walk nearby. My fiancé and I are quite local living in Castleford. The website is in all honesty pointless. For a place that does food you would expect to find a menu on there but there isn't one. Instead there are photos... More

Had mum's birthday meal there with all the family. What a great place. Food is amazing. Caroline & mark are fantastic hosts who can't do enough for you. Brilliant atmosphere for a country pub. Would recommend to anyone.
