Great local

Wandered in on a rainy day. Nothing pretentious just good friendly staff. Log fire could have done with a few more logs on but pub was warm enough. Just had a drink but food looked OK, decent pub fare and many people eating. Several locals in the bar. Big comfy arm chairs by the fire were great.

As long as you are not expecting the higher eschelon of cuisine, this magical pub turns out excellent quality pub grub and fantastic cask ales. Lovely roaring fire and fabulous views.

We have been to this area on numerous occasions always stopping off in Leyburn but had until now never been into the Bolton Arms. It stands proud in the Market Place & from the outside looks quite ok so we decided to go in & have a drink. Once through the door what a difference, drab, dark & dreary. We... More

Visited with two friends, looked very nice from outside but inside was a different story! Tired, dirty and a bit dank, unfortunately it was getting late so we ordered food...... The three sausage baguette turned out to be a one sausage baguette and the tuna sandwich was more like a thinly spread fish paste sandwich! £34 very badly spent, we... More

We made the mistake of visiting this pub on 1st November. The bar staff chose to serve regulars who had come to the bar after I had been standing for a couple of minutes. The bar man was surly and made us feel as though we were an inconvenience. The carpets looked dirty and the bar and handrail were sticky... More

Tried this pub recently while in the area, not bad but quite rowdy in the back but beer OK but I wouldn't rush back I'd try other pubs in the area first
