Typical British pub

A very good range of beers and ciders, and typical British pub food. Looks far better from the outside than in with screens showing sports and a pool table. If after a quiet family meal not for you. Staff friendly enough though and have own car park

In a town where the restaurants can be expensive, The Bolton Arms offers friendly service, good beer and quality pub food that doesn't cost the earth. Long may it continue!

So, a few beers consumed the night before (Monday Club) and this was a hangover that not even a prompt 4 miler could cure. Went to the bar, ordered 'Hair of the Dog' and a Tuna & Cheese jacket potato. In the matter of what seemed to be moments, I had the chef at my table and parading a full... More

my wife and myself had the unfortunate experience of deciding to have a carvery at this pub today. After first being charged £6.00 for two pints of coke, I then visited the toilet downstairs, as it was mentioned in an early review (june 2015) the floor was still flooded and extremely slippy, quite dangerous if you are unsteady on your...

From the outside this hotel looks really good, sadly on entering a big disappointment. Food only average but cheap, would not return, seems more like a biker pub, a bit slapdash on not at all appealing, I guess they know their clientele and are happy with that, but it could be so much more with a bit of work.

We have driven past this place several times in the last few years but not visited till this month. It used to be covered in beautiful floral window boxes making it look very inviting- alas all empty now. The building is impressive from the outside and stands in a prime position in Leyburn at the top of the square. Inside... More

My husband, myself and our 3 year old daughter called here today for some lunch after visiting the falls nearby. We were all really hungry and desperate to find somewhere that accepted card as we had no cash on us. After driving away from 3 other pubs we came here. To be honest we were just expecting the usual frozen... More

We recently moved to the area and the Bolton Arms is walking distance from us. I agree that it could do with updating with regards to decor but don't judge a book by its cover. We have now eaten here on at least 8 occasions and the food has always been lovely. It's a typical pub menu and I feel... More

I wasn't sure which review to comment on as there's a couple for the Bolton arms. I noticed this one had a lot of negative reviews though so felt it need more positives! We stayed just round the corner from this restaurant last week and it was recommended to us to go for food. The weather was great on the... More
