We loved the atmosphere of The Bolton Arms. Loved the big old fireplace. I think we should go back on a winters evening on one of our trips just to sit near the fire. It's located on the town square so parking is close by. The food was good and enjoyed by all. The wait staff were attentive and pleasant.... More

Recommended to me by my B&B host, I chose the lamb shank, which was perfectly cooked. Plenty of fresh vegetables. I was offered a free taster of the local ale. I foolishly ate the whole blackberry and apple crumble and custard which I enjoyed! Good service until a slight mix-up with the wrong bill but altogether a good evening. Interesting... More

We visited one night last week hoping to have a meal there, but unfortunately we didn't stay. It's a lovely impressive building standing at the top of the market square in Leyburn with great staff but the place lacked atmosphere.....there was only ourselves and one other couple in a large lounge, and it was very bright. We expected it to... More

Visting Leyburn and this pub looks very impressive from the outside. When we entered the bar my impression was of a place that needed some work done on the decoration. Walked up to the bar and asked for a pint of Black Sheep Ale (a local brew) and was told very abruptly 'we don't serve that'. With such a warm... More

Had Sunday lunch there which was ok with a window seat overlooking the countryside Food ok with a good choice of vegetables although meats were limited Food was a bit cold I thought perhaps hot plates would have helped? This place on previous visits was very busy so why was it so quiet when we went? The flaking paintwork ,... More

We visited this pub a few times during our recent visit to Leyburn. The staff were extremely friendly and the beer was well kept. We also ate here one evening - very good traditional pub food with good proportions and nicely served. Good value for money. No doubt we shall return.

Been here a few times in the past and always loved the food so went for a meal with family. It was a Thursday night and it was cold and empty with no atmosphere. Food was ok but nothing special, though steak was nice. Not sure if its more popular in the summer and at weekends but there was next... More

I think people only go into this pub when every else is full. It is now scruffy and empty of locals who all go to the Golden Lion. Very sad as it is a lovely building
