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

The chips were fresh cooked not frozen like so many places these days. The staff were very friendly,yes the place is a bit dated but I... 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

Service was quick and friendly. It's reasonably priced for the big portions. Steak and Ale pie was superb, big chunky chips and good amount of vegatables too. Had an acoustic guitar player who gave the good atmosphere a boost.

This place looks good from outside, but walking in it looks rather run down. Ordered steak pie, chips and veg from the limited menu. There was plenty of. Meat in the pie, but I think they must have dropped the salt seller in it. It was so salty! On the plate was a gravy boat, with thick dark very salty... More

We had Fish, Chips and Mushy Peas. Could have eaten that every day. Excellent quality, service and value for money (£9.99 each).

This Pub needs some work doing on the inside but what it lacks in décor it certainly makes up for in the welcome from the staff. The food was excellently presented and cooked and very generous helpings - unfortunately for me!!!! The staff are working hard to ensure guests have a good experience - just try it and see for...

We have just returned from an Easter break in Leyburn and visited the Bolton Arms on a couple of evenings just for drinks. A fine imposing building but looks can be deceiving. The inside is tired, weary and soulless . When we tried to get served with drinks (and the place wasn't full) the bar person seemed to struggle to... More
