Went here for a Xmas meal, the place is small but well staffed and organised, the only trouble tonight is they had no Lamb meals, no Cod loins and no Yorkshire puddings! OMG no yorkshires what a mix up on some ones part, no yorkshires at 8.30! We enjoyed what we had it was very nice, the food was amazing... More

I used to visit this pub many years ago whenever I stayed over in Wakefield for business meetings. I just had to go back when in the area for a few days. My wife and I went for lunch and I was very pleased that we did. I had to choose from seven hand-pumped beers but could only risk just... More

First time we've been to the Arms for a while, the restaurant is now called the Gaslight. Although it looks exactly the same when you walk through the door, the menu seemed to have improved. We were seated at a table in one of the two sectioned off areas, which we liked immensely. The food was much better than previous... More

First time visit for lunch. Cracking set of Ossett Brewery and guest beers on, lovely old coaching inn. My wife had the scampi while I had the Barnsley chop. Great food overall, great welcome and service from the team. Very happy, we'll be back.

Visited on a Saturday afternoon for food. The location is nice, and the cosy pub is lovely. We ordered main meals only: a soup with a side of chips, and a portion of fish and chips. We waited at least half an hour for our food, which seemed excessive to us as it didn't appear to be busy. The food... More

Haven't eaten there although the menu looks quite good. There's an Olde Worlde feel in the bar with a decent selection of ales. However, a trip to the gents to a slightly more modern era - probably the 1970 from the style of wall tiles, although its difficult to tell because they look like they haven't been cleaned since the...

I eat quite reg here as its close to home . Can be little pricy for lunch but never had a bad meal . I think they should offer smaller lite bites not just sandwiches. People who complain about small dark rooms with gas lights and stone floors are nuts . It's an old coaching in with all the charm.... More
