“Queens Arms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

We also stumbled across this pub after I stated that we would stop at the next pub and have coffee. We also thought it looked closed although a very elderly lady with a cane hobbled around the corner, so we went in... I felt quite guilty when I ordered 1 tea, 2 coffees, and 2 glasses of water, it seemed like it was putting her to too much trouble. Eventually all was on our table and to our surprise the tea and coffee were excellent. It was a fascinating place and I doubt there is another anyway near like it, so, don't be put off, and most certainly don't be in a hurry because she doesn't get around very fast and can only carry one thing at a time. Just made our day ;)

“A gem of a pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Stumbled over the Victoria Arms one dark night on the way back from Catterick to Lancaster. I thought it was closed as there was almost no sign of life from the outside. Fortunately it was open and what a place it turned out to be. Essentially it is someone's home with a small bar in it. The elderly owner and his wife were sat in the bar surrounded by the ephemera of their life - photos, stuffed animals, posters, you name it. It feels a bit 'Slaughtered Lamb' intitially but in reality is as fascinating trip into how pubs used to be run. Go quick, it's sure to change.
