“Lovely Meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

Me and my boyfriend went to the Staveley Arms for a meal and it was lovely! To start, we had the chicken liver pate and the garlic mushrooms - both of which were very generous portions. For main course, we had the homemade Steak & Ale Pie & the Gammon.
The food was cooked and presented to a very high standard and the restaurant itself has been very well done and has a great atmosphere. Will definitely be returning!

“Congratulations Staveley Arms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Great night pre Tour.
Staveley Arms certainly pulled out all the stops with a hog roast which was well attended by both village people and tourists. I heard one person remark that these these young people ( Stef and Bridgette) had done a great job in pulling the village together in a festive mood.
It certainly was festive with a great wow atmosphere everyone enjoying themselves.
The hog roast was superb and my companion who is vegetarian had sea bass and declared it was the best she had ever tasted.
Top marks to Bridgette, Stef, Richard and all the staff who helped to make this a memorable time for everyone. Your attention to detail, preparation work for the tour, the food and general ambience certainly deserves 5 stars and a return visit.

“Nice Restuarant and bar.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

The restaurant is situated in the lovely village of North Stainley nr Ripon. It is also a mile away from Lightwater Valley theme park. The staff were very friendly here and we visited it several times whilst camping nearby. Every meal was cooked and served to a high standard. There is a good choice of menu and drinks with a nice outside seating area and ample car parking. The food was reasonably priced also. We visited during the weekend and the pub seems to close between lunch and dinner re opening at 1700 hrs .

“Delicious Sunday carveries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

Always has a delicious carvery on a Sunday but you do need to book as this small country pub gets very busy. Food reasonably priced and great quality. A large car park available. Olde worlde charm inside with stone flooring.
Worth a trip out for a meal or drinks.
