Stale smell of old oil

We walked in and walked out, the smell of stale oil was definitely off-putting. Not to be recommended on the smell alone.

Pub looks very nice from outside but there was a notice saying Under New Management and New Winter Menu Starts Today which might explain the slightly chaotic atmosphere. Eg what's the soup of the day? Tomato and basil. Fine. Ten minutes later - No, it's Minestrone. That's fine. Eventually two bowls of tomato and something appeared. Tasted OK but don't... More

So, I thought I'd have a trip up to the Dales, and found myself enjoying an evening at The Bolton Arms, Leyburn. Firstly, I was lured in by how majestic the place looks from the outside. It certainly stands out from the other buildings that surround around the Market Square. As I entered the pub, it was warm, cosy and... More

We ate at this pub on a Saturday night and we were not disappointed. The pub was busy and the new landlord very welcoming. We will definitely go back.

Visited to get Black Sheep bitter and stayed for a meal. Good simple food and best chips I have had for a long time. Very quiet but it was a wet Thursday evening. Staff were very helpful

We went because we saw an advertisement which lots of things for children to do. The view from the castle was excellent, but the activities were very disappointing.
