5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Enjoyed this perfect getaway with my partner and our dog. The location is perfect set in a little village. Our room was clean and fresh. The staff are very friendly. The food is delicious and reasonably priced. Lovely warm welcoming hotel. Would definitely return and hopefully enjoy the hospitality again. Thank you ......

12 of us descended on the Forresters Arms from all over UK and Sweden to celebrate my Mum's 90th year and 3 generations plus dog were made very welcome. Nigel and team were very helpful with our special meal which involved 'Elvis' making an appearance! They hid the special cake,until needed, chilled the Prosecco to perfection, produced 12 meals of a high standard and all done in a very unobtrusive, professional but friendly way. Mum and Dad liked their ground floor room 1 with their 'private garden' as they called the smoking area. All the rooms were comfortable and I can vouch that our bed in room 8 induced a sound sleep.The breakfasts are very tasty too. The real ales were much appreciated by several in the party.It is wonderful to find such a gem of a place where dogs are welcome.It showed Filippa Yorkshire country inn hospitality at it's best.The other guests and locals joined in the fun and we all had a lovely time in a very relaxed atmosphere. It was a very special weekend in a special place and we were all sad to leave, but we'll be back! Chris D

After experiencing some very poor service and quality with the so called four star "name" brand hotels on our travels through the UK, I was very pleasantly surprised by the service we received at this little Inn.The staff went out of their way and the food was fantastic. The rooms were comfortable and the town was quite.

Fell over this little gem today (4 June 2013). Had lunch outside the front of the pub - wow what a lunch. Served from a new menu that day on a wooden platter was the ploughmans and forresters salads. Absolutely beautiful and the cheesboard a new one on me was the lavender cheese - it was superb. The staff here are definitely friendly and could not be more helpful. The food is second to none and the menu is excellent and well priced. I would recommend this place any time and as for the beer - GO FOR THE HORSE its brills

Just returned from another lovely visit to this great pub. Food superb. Bedroom comfortable with plenty of space to lounge about. Staff attentive without being intrusive. Welcoming atmosphere, so much so, we joined in with the locals on their quiz night. Sorry, we won't be there to set the next one. A fabulous 2 days celebrating a birthday and a wedding anniversary. Looking forward to another trip closer to Christmas. One final mention 'breakfast was delicious'.

Room Tip: Have stayed in most of the rooms - all lovely.

Just returned from two nights at the Forrester's. A well appointed en suite room with fluffy white towels and good quality toiletries provided. This is a family run establishment and Nigel and his staff really do go the extra mile to make sure you enjoy your stay. Dinner on both evenings was cooked to perfection and portions are generous. The Forrester's breakfast is also excellent -perfectly cooked local produce and generous portions. The village is an absolute gem and the locals are as welcoming as the staff. This wasn't our first visit to the Forrester's and it certainly won't be our last.

The Forresters Arms is situated in the village of Kilburn, near Thirsk, Yorkshire. The village is famous for the Mouseman furniture made by Robert Thompson Craftsmen. The family run hotel is an excellent venue either for a quiet break or as a base for touring. The bedrooms are well appointed. The selection of meals is first class. A must if you are visiting Yorkshire.
