Description: The Rythre Arms has been the Steak Mecca of Yorkshire for over 32 years. We are situated in a traditional, centuries old, pub restaurant nestled between Tadcaster and Selby and serve the best locally sourced beef available. Our steaks are matured and butchered on the premises and range in size from the modest 6 ounce Fillet to the Rythre Monster that comes in at an awe-inspiring 78 ounces!

“Favourite place to eat in the UK”
Reviewed December 21, 2012 via mobile

We have been a few times to the Rythre arms which was first introduced to us by friends when we lived down there. Now we love in Durham it makes it a little more difficult to go but we still go down for special occasions. Everything about this place makes the all round journey of 160 miles well worth it. It's a tiny little what looks like a local pub in a small village in the sticks but it should be on everyone's front door. Firstly the food is astounding, first impressions are a it's a little pricey when looking at the menu but when you actually realise the size and quality of your food that comes out you really wonder how they're able to still make a profit with those prices. We've never had a bad meal yet, and the tbones are amazing. The service is always astounding. We follow the owner on twitter who is frequently advertising new deals and if you let him know you're coming he personally makes you welcome and sure you're looked after. You honestly feel like you're getting VIP treatment. The only real downsides to this place, which aren't really downsides, are its location, the bar can feel a bit dingy (but that's just most places in the Yorkshire sticks I think) and I've never been when its quiet. You always to have to book, sometimes weeks in advance for festive periods, otherwise you're just not getting served as it just gets so busy for such a small place. I've been on a Monday night in the middle of January and its still been heaving. Because its so out the way and small, it's such a shame this place doesn't have more of a national reputation as it really is utterly fantastic!!!

“Excellent Mixed Grill”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

Went to the Ryther Arms last Saturday. Took my friends and one of them had eaten at some of the best steak eateries in London. We sat down and ordered the mixed grill which consisted of an 8 ounce ribeye, lamb chops and loin of pork. The best we've eaten ever, anywhere. Great wine and service. be sure to ask the head barman about steak and corresponding wine choice. He certainly knows his cabbages that boy!

Amazing steaks, but loses marks because it is a bit pricey and they wont let you share the Ryther Monster.

“Best steak we'd ever had, can't wait to return”
Reviewed December 5, 2012 via mobile

Booked a table for 5 for my mums birthday on Saturday 1st Dec, have never been before and none of us we're disappointed. Lovely place, great service, clean, cosey, can't fault it. And the food, quite simply the best steak we've ever had anywhere! The accompaniment's were also fabulous, onion rings to die for! If you haven't been then give it a try, but watch the portion sizes they are huge, don't have a starter if you're a lightweight like me!
