Whist out for the day in North Yorkshire I was looking for a place for lunch. I had a place in mind but came across The Bruce Arms and as it looked pleasant enough from the outside thought we would give it a go. I am so pleased we did. We had one of the nicest lunches we have had... More

There was a group of about 15 of us who went for a leaving meal. As the Bruce Arms was an easy location and recently reopened we thought we would give this a go. The new management are a lovely young couple who have excellent restaurant experience. The food and service was amazing even for a party of our size... More

We were looking for some accommodation in the area at the last minute. I came across The Bull Inn but they were full and gave me the number for The Bruce Arms. Luckily they had a room available. We arrived 2 hours before check in time as we were headed to a family wedding. Our plan was to get changed... More

At very short notice Hugh very kindly offered to host my 50th birthday party after I had been let down at the last minute. He came up with a very varied menu suitable for vegetarian and gluten free. The food was very good and nicely presented. Nothing was too much trouble and the 3 courses were well timed in there... More

We have visited the Bruce Arms several times and the food served has always been very good indeed. We chose it as a venue for a family party and were thrilled with the success of the evening. Great attention to detail by the 'front of house', waiters well briefed and helpful and of course the food was lovely cooked by... More

We had a pleasant over night stay at The Bruce Arms following a sociable evening with friends. The hotel/pub/restaurant is under new management and she is keen to improve the reputation & quality. A few things do need ironing out but our general impression was a comfortable atmosphere, good bedrooms, food was ok & staff very friendly. Excellent location for... More

Friends had said it was poor but we were nearby and gave it a go. The staff were friendly but disorganized. Our food was generally poor and took ages to arrive - although they weren't busy. Almost all our unexpectedly still shell-on prawns were covered in roe - not nice. We mentioned this but the waiter didn't seem sufficiently well... More
