Cayley Arms
Ranked #43 of 46 Pickering B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 25, 2011

An ideal location for visiting the Wolds and the North York Moors or the coast. We stayed here over night to see a concert at the nearby Dalby Forest. Felt welcome on arrival and throughout our stay by the the hosts Sue, Dickie and staff. The food was very nice and all homemade with generous portions. Good selection of guest beers which were refreshing! Rooms were clean and comfortable.

Just returned from a short break at the Cayley Arms, Allerston. A great base for visiting the Wolds and the North York Moors.

The pub itself is very friendly, we arrived on a Friday teatime (the Royal Wedding day) and we were immediately made to feel welcome by the locals as well as the hosts Dickie and Sue. The food was absolutely lovely and all homemade with very generous portions. In fact on the Friday, I ordered a starter of soup and after having this struggled to eat the very tasty chicken goujons that followed! Breakfasts were amazing, piping hot and plentiful, definitely did not need anything else to eat throughout the day. The twin room that we stayed in was at the rear of the pub, so no road noise although I do not think that this would have been a problem. Room was clean and comfortable and more than adequate for a short break.

This is the ideal location for those who are happy to chat to locals (all very friendly) and perhaps play darts and domino's etc in the evening. Not for those who want to party the night away though!! I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it as a good base to anyone. Dickie was also a really good host and I enjoyed the tour of his farm on the Saturday morning which was an added extra as he has some lovely pedigree cattle.

Stayed at the Cayley Arms for one night on the 7th August 2010. The pub/inn is easy to find and is well located for exploring the moors and not far from Whitby and Scarborough. Although it is on the main A170 road we weren't disturbed by road noise. There is no village around the pub - it stands alone on the road. The village was signposted down a side road and we didn't visit it as we were out and about. If you are staying here there is no centre with shops, pubs, retaurants to walk around so unless you are taking your car out at night you are eating and drinking in the Cayley Arms.
The owners and all the staff were very pleasant.
The rooms themselves are OK but the rooms themselves and the en-suite add-on area are both small. The breakfast was excellent, all hot and freshly cooked. In the evening you can either eat in the bar part of the pub or in the separate dining room. There is a limited wine list. The food is home made and mostly good, if a little 80's. All meals are served with a side salad and chips or herbies (which were described as herbed potatoes but turned out to be another form of fried potatoe and not the fresh potatoes with herbs that we expected). There was not a fresh vegetable in sight and we weren't offered a selection which was disappointing. I had the potted Pork which was homemade and well flavoured and my husband had the mackerel pate which again was home made and tasty. We both opted for the slow baked lamb which we were disappointed with - partly from our own expectations I expect. We expected a piece of lamb cooked on the bone (shank or something like that) What we actually got was small cubes of lamb in a small terrine. It was well cooked but not impressive. I would describe the food as good home made pub grub - not restaurant fair.
Would I stay again, probably not, but it made a good base for a one night stay.

Stayed one night - 07 April 2009. The new owners, Dickie & Sue Ward have done some excellent work to revive this pub. The en-suite rooms were clean, very adequate and quiet - TV, radio, coffee & tea. Good base for exploring Yorkshire Wolds and the Coast. Sue only cooks for residents on Tuesday evenings so my choice was a bit limited. The home made salmon fish cakes were excellent followed by fruit cake (courtesey of Sue's mum) & Wensleydale cheese. Everything on the menu is genuinely home made with meat sourced from a Pickering butcher and the farm of origin is displayed on a board in the bar. There are 2 other special nights - Chicken & Ribs and Yorkshire Pudding - best to check which nights these dishes are served. Breakfast was everything you would expect from a farmer's wife - plenty of it and well cooked. Finally the pub is in the Good Beer guide - a Cameron's bitter and a guest ale plus the usual choice of lagers etc. Wine list is small but well balanced, suited to the choices and looks good value.
Very nice forest walks at the back of the pub. Not much to do at night but talk to the locals, play dominoes and other traditional pub games as an alternative to the PlayStation. Suitable for famillies, singles and couples who are seeking a quiet stay.
