Fabulous meal for 20 people. Helpful, pleasant staff managed to give excellent service to a rather boisterous group and I would recommend the food, the service, value for money and the ambience wholeheartedly. Congratulations and thank you.

We have just spent a couple of nights at The Craven Arms. The staff are very friendly, the room large enough and clean. We had room 6 which is to the back of the hotel. Although it is just off the A65 we slept very well with no traffic noise even with the window open. We used the restaurant for...

I have visit the Craven Arms several time in the last couple of months. The food was excellent on every occasion. There is a good selection on the menu and it is good to have smaller portions as an option for a lunch when you don't want a big meal. The staff are good, the food is presented well and...

We stayed here for two nights, from the start we were welcomed warmly. It was really nice to stay somewhere that has a great restaurant, good rooms but is still connected to the community. With a number of locals coming in for an after work drink as well as groups coming for an evening meal. Great balance, not protencious. Evening...

Excellent facilities, service and food. Have eaten here 3 or 4 times now and it has been consistently excellent. Latest trip was 25th January and the food was superb; beef wellington brilliant, gammon superb, leek and onion delicious. Cheeseboard with the fruit cake is always brilliant and the apple and sultana crumble perfect. If you haven't tried it give it...

We stayed for one night as an two adults travelling with an adult child. The room was spacious and comfortable and clean. As non smokers we are often confronted with revolting smelling rooms. This one wasnt. It was at the back of the pub and was quiet from patrons and traffic. The breakfast was absolutely lovely with a good selection...

Booked last minute for a weekend of walking. I had previously visited the Craven Arms for a meal earlier in the year and was impressed with the food then and thought it would be a good base for walking around the Three Peaks area and I was not disappointed. My room was cosy, enormous bed and even though it faced...

I was staying here with my son for a couple of days' walking. We received a warm welcome when we arrived after a 6 hour journey and quickly made use of the bar, with a very nice pint of Ribblehead. The room was good, 2 single beds a long way apart, ideal for a father and teenage son! The food...

We spent last weekend at the Craven. Everything was A1 except at breakfast both mornings it was very difficult to get a second cup of coffee. Some guests were offered a second cup and some were not. We tried to attract attention but with no swift success. Eventually, when it was really too late anyway, we did shout the waitress...
