“Best Hiking Lunch in the Dales”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

My friend and I have been walking the Dales for many years- our days consist of about a 12 mile hike intervalled with a lunch stop at T shop or pub. We have found that the best meal for us rests at the Bolton Arms at Redmire. The pub is always clean, warm with a homely real fire and the staff ever pleasant. The food is hearty, well cooked, tasty and plentiful and all this being reasonably priced. Our accompanying dog is welcomed into the bar area and we look forward to our days where our walk revolves around the Bolton Arms. Many thanks and see you all again

“Birthday meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

We went to the Bolton Arms for my birthday meal and there was 17 of us! We were asked if we could pre-order but this was not possible and I said that we were fine to wait for the food - well there was no wait! The service was amazing!! as was the food! Could not fault anything of the night. The restaurant was busy last night - not just ourselves taking over the place! and so the organisation of the restaurant staff was outstanding. The staff were very helpful and looked after our needs aswell as looking after all the other diners. Very impressed with the service considering we had given them no prior notice to what we wanted to order. The food was gorgeous and I loved my lasagne that I had. The whole atmosphere of the pub was very welcoming and relaxed. We will definitely be going again as will all of our friends who came last night

“We loved this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

My wife and I booked a cottage in the village of Redmire for a week over the New Year period. The Bolton Arms had been recommended to us by some friends so we e-mailed well in advance to book a table for an evening meal on our day of arrival. We also booked two places for the New Year's Eve celebrations.

Janet and Bill are a lovely couple who go out of their way to make you feel welcome, we had three evening meals during the week and they were all extremely good value and of very high quality. The waitng staff are quite young and we were very impressed with how 'professionally' they performed there tasks.

New Year's Eve was great fun, the locals are friendly and it's easy to stike up conversations if you want too.

There are a variety of local walks brochures and maps available around the bar.

The Theakston's Best Bitter is recommended!

We are already looking forward to going back, possibly in the autumn.

“Tasty food and good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

We had stopped at the Bolton Arms in Redmire for coffee after a ride on the Wensleydale Railway and decided to go back for dinner. Do not mix this hotel up with the Bolton Arms in Leyburn - the quality is quite different! Redmire Bolton Arms was excellent. We had beautifully cooked scampi and local lamb steak. The service was efficient and friendly - thank you for a lovely meal.
