Ok

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

Went in to grab some lunch, the exterior of the pub looks very nice, sadly the interior is shall we say a bit tired. Nevertheless we ordered 2 diet cokes and it cost £6, actually more expensive than beer for coke, and not bottles of coke either. After that we decided not to stay just a rip off.

We came across the Bolton Arms whilst on holiday and having a day in the Dales, we stopped for lunch. It was a lovely sunny day so we decided to sit in the small garden which in itself was very nice. My son was playing in the garden when another customer arrived with their 2 dogs which began urinating on... More

Well this pub has views to die for and on the Leyburn 1940s weekend many people enjoyed them sitting outside listening to the music and looking out over the Yorkshire Dales. It is in the heart of the town and serves good food and drink at reasonable prices. On this particular weekend it was the busiest that the pub gets... More

Good welcome from the only person on the floor the barmaid. Had to find our own menus on the bar. Tables cleared slowly and not well cleaned. The barmaid made up for the other staff with her friendly appearance and service patter. Food choice was varied and it was average in quality. Fish and chips were greasy and peas lacked... More

Upon picking a place to eat we chose the Bolton arms . First impressions nice however inside was dated. The gammon was lovely however the children's pizza was hard and not even a knife would cut through. The pasta bolognaise was bland and no taste to it ! However the garlic bread was on par !!!! We complained to the... More

Prawn and side salad and ham and cheese n salad. Well presented on a big long plate. Landlady/gaffer think her name is Susie. Good pub,... More

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!
