Ok

Basic pub grub at a little over basic pub grub prices. Though the steak pie was pretty good with plenty of steak, the pulled pork burger was only adequate as the burger itself was relatively poor. Decent beer at a reasonable cost. Table service left a little to be desired and the obligatory 'is... read 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

9 of us went here today for a family Sunday lunch today 13 June. It looks quite modern and gastro from the outside but it stops there. We were sent upstairs and noticed that the place hasn't been decorated for quite a number of years. Both the gents urinals were leaking on to the floor and the toilet seat was... More

We stayed B&B in Leyburn and went to the Bolton Arms for a cheap and cheerful meal and were not disappointed. Excellent food hot and served with pleasant staff

We went to the Bolton Arms for tea. We were allowed to take the dog in with us. Food was below average and expensive for what we had. Very dated inside. Staff not at all friendly it was as though they didn't want to be there.

Stopped here for a quick bite to eat at lunchtime. The food was below average - a ham salad and a steak sandwich, which was one meagre overcooked slice of beef, with onion rings steeped in cheap sunflower oil. Raw chips added to the experience. The biggest problem was the price. Over £21 for this, half a coke and a... More

The Bolton arms is a little tired but please don't let the bar area put you off. The food was freshly cooked nicely presented and very good value. Please try it
