Had a very pleasant couple of hours and some very good food at this out of the way country pub/restaurant tonight. I had the salmon fillet which was wonderfully cooked and a good portion. My friend had the sirloin steak which had all the usual trimmings and which he said was cooked to perfection. Our better halves both had the... More

Me and my partner went to The Rustic Arms for our Valentine's Day meal travelling from Doncaster, and we are so glad we did! The staff cannot do enough for you, they are friendly and so welcoming, the food is out of this world, we both had steak, it was amazing! Followed by treacle sponge/jam sponge, which was all homemade... More

Our drinks were brought promptly while we discussed the menu which had a good selection of choices. When we were ready to eat we made our way to the small queue for the... More

The Rustics is a truly traditional English pub/restaurant. Warm and cozy, friendly staff who are very attentive. The carvery has a magnitude of vegetables with varied choice of meats and pie (the pie crust is sublime). And Yorkshires that my mum would be proud of!

Looking for some where to grab a bite to eat on our way home one sunday evening, saw the signs, so decided to give the Rustic arms a try. The place was very quiet, a few people drinking and watching the football. Apparently the carvery is very popular and we had missed that, so we chose from a very good... More

Me and my partner visited the Rustic Arms midweek. I had been here regularly when I was a child and decided to pop by and see how it had changed if at all.
