During a recent trip back to the UK my Australian partner was keen to visit a traditional English country pub. After looking at reviews of establishments in the area we decided to try The Milbank Arms. As soon as we walked through the door we were greeted by friendly and attentive staff; we decided on a lovely bottle of red and secured a cosy spot by the open fire. The food menu has something for everyone, with the addition of a specials board. We finally decided on sharing the pate and fishcake as a starter, followed by the venison and pork stack. We both thought our food was delicious, fresh and homemade. The portions were very generous but we couldn't resist trying the chocolate cake for pudding, the perfect end to a lovely meal.

Friendly atmosphere, filled with locals. Would definitely recommend.

Last time we visited Thorpe Perrow Arboretum we stumbled across this village pub. They made our party of 2 children and 4 adults very welcome and we enjoyed our lunch. So a repeat visit to Thorpe Perrow brought forth requests to re-visit the Millbank Arms. The welcome and the food were just as good as last time. The 7 year old wanted fish and chips (as did grand-dad) and the staff were happy to share one (very) large piece of fish between the two diners (afterwards desserts were also shared!). So it's thumbs up again!

There was six of us & we all had different things off the menu. None of us was disappointed with the quality of the food. None of us could fault the service. None of us moaned about paying the cost of the lovely food we ate. Fab place to eat out & I would suggest that you booked beforehand because it's a popular, proper Yorkshire pub.

We visited the Milbank Arms on Saturday night for a family meal out. Our choice of pub was based purely on the Tripadviser reviews, as we hadn't been there before (we didn't actually know it was there!). We had a fantastic evening, the service was superb, and the food delicious with plenty of choice. We'll definitely be going back!
