Just spent a one night short break at Listers Arms. Couldn't have picked a nicer place to stay. Our room (12) was quiet and of a high standard. Lovely place, food was excellent - i have no doubt that we will return.

We have stayed here before and eaten here a number of times and always found it good. Unfortunately I cannot say the same for this visit. We called in for an evening meal. The staff were friendly but the menu was much cut down from previous visits - possibly because it was winter, although most accommodation was pretty well booked...

We were staying in the Beck Hall and decided to go out for an evening meal and chose the Lister Arms as it was very close to our hotel. It is a lovely pub with a good selection of Ales and there was plenty to choose from on the menu. I have the fillet and it was one of the...

Stopped here for a meal in the evening after spending the day in Malham. Great food, nice staff and a very cosy surrounding. Restaurant was very busy and had plenty of buzz about it too, wouldn't hesitate to visit again should I be up here again.

The Lister Arms is a beautiful hotel that is located in beautiful village of Mallam. The location of the hotel is excellent, and the hotel is totally charming. I would easily give the location 5/5. The quality of sleep was not perfect for us as we could hear people out side , the room was too warm and sadly we...

Stayed on Monday 31st October. After a long walk it was lovely to come back to the Lister Arms. Meal and drinks were fabulous however we did have a few issues with the room. The staff were fabulous especially Ross and a young lady, sorry I didn't get her name. They are a true asset to the hotel. Would recommend...

My wife and I did a 10 mile walk ending at Malham Cove. We had parked out the front of The Lister Arms and put £1.50 into the milk churn to cover the cost of parking. Actually I think it is only a pound but I was feeling wreckless. Living near Brighton a day's parking would be nearer £20. As...
