My family and I visited the listers on our regular annual trip to malham (this is our 4th time) as usual the village was bustling with tourists visiting the wonderful scenery this lovely part of the world has to offer. We called into the lister arms for a fantastic pint of wainwright and reserved a table for our evening meal. On our return we were greeted by the same gentleman ( short hair sorry didn't catch his name ) that took our reservation for dinner, although he was rather busy on the bar he was very friendly and offered me to sample the new local bitter, a nice touch. We were shown to our table by a friendly young lady to be amazed by how quiet it was for the time of year, we ordered the butchers deli board to share as a starter which included half a scotch egg, pâté, a sausage and salad - not good value for £11 followed by pork belly and fish and chips which was served with green beans rather than mushy peas as stated on the menu? The food was ok but not as memorable as previous visits, after chatting with the waitress we realised the young management couple from previous visits had moved on. The food seems to of gone downhill in the last 12 months with no management presence the only positive is the staff members who seem to keep the place going. Needless to say we dined at the Buck on the next 2 evenings.
