“Fantastic place to stay!!”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Just returned from the Wombell Arms Inn, we stayed for one night as we had business to attend to in Scarborough. What a find!! I booked this inn because of the comments on Tripadvisor and have to agree with everything that was said. Owners,staff and local people were all very welcoming. Dinner and breakfast were superb. The Inn was warm, comfortable and spotless clean, bed was very comfy. I thought of comming back from Scarborough and staying another night but the weather was so poor (heavy flooding everywhere) that we thought it better to get home but as we visit Yorkshire many times a year, we will definately stay there again.

We chose to stay 3 nights at the Wombwell Arms while househunting in North Yorkshire, and what a lucky find it turned out to be. Our hosts and all the staff were friendly and interested in our daily activities, such that it was a pleasure to come back each evening and unwind after a stressful day. Our room with ensuite shower (No. 1) was on the small side but spotlessly clean and smartly decorated and perfectly adequate for the two of us. We did not have any noise issues.
We loved the combination of rusticity and stylish decor in the bar and restaurant, the food was superb and a real treat both at breakfast and dinner, and the icing on the cake was the after-dinner stroll in the clear evening air to see beautiful, romantic Byland Abbey under floodlights.

We live in Yorkshire but stayed here 3 days to spend more time in the North Yorkshire Moors. Staff were very welcoming and the breakfasts were excellent.Dinner was good but some dishes a little pricey and a touch limited for a 3 night stay.
Room 1 and shower were small but adequate- very clean and well presented. We were on a special deal and I asked Ian if it was quiet as it was directly above the bar. He told us it was sound proof and there may be a little noise until 11pm. However we could hear every word clearly until 11.30pm Friday,midnight on Saturday and only 9.30pm on Sunday, which is when we went to bed, being the last customers. Parking in the car park could be a problem if the restaurant was full,although street parking was available.

This place is a bit of hidden gem that would be easy to miss as it is a bit off the tourist track. The inn is traditional and the rooms are therefore quite small but it is a very old building so what else would you expect. The rooms were very clean and had all the facilities that you might expect. The pub itself is very welcoming and the beer was well kept and there was a good range. The food in the restaurant was excellent. The owner is South African and there were some really interesting and very very tasty options. The wine recommendation was perfect and it was well worth the money.

The owners were very welcoming. Breakfast was excellent. Goog quality and generous. I have to say that whatever you do, don't pass on the black pudding!

We would certainly very happily go back.

Been coming here for many years and have always enjoyed it. I can't understand adverse comments made by others about the attitude of the excellent people who run the Wombwell Arms, as we've always found both management and staff pleasant, very welcoming, helpful and attentive. Our fairly recent visit - the first for some time - turned into a very happy evening for all concerned. The food is good though, to be perfectly honest, not exceptional and prices are a bit on the high side - but this is a pricey area and the pub has a good reputation. The statement on the menu that the prices don't include a service charge are rather puzzling and leave one uncertain what to do (in my opinion the service charge should be included in the price printed on the menu - as is normal practice nowadays, in the UK and most of Europe). There is a reasonable choice of real ales on handpump - though on the evening in question one of the beers was not on 'top form' (that's a risk you run with cask conditioned beer - the last few pints from the barrel don't have the best taste). Will definitely be going again, despite the slight 'niggles' mentioned above.

We stayed for one night to enjoy a meal and not have to drive home afterwards. The inn dates from 1620 and has been decorated in a fresh modern style that maintains the character but is not at all fussy: scrubbed pine tables, exposed stone, neutral paint etc. Bedrooms are similar in style and ours had a lovely big wardrobe with plenty of hanging space and drawers. I couldn't make the shower work properly but they are closing for a week of maintenance next week so that might be sorted out. The breakfast was very good and the evening meal good (in my opinion). Many dishes were very reasonably priced and it all seemed to be freshly prepared. The selection of wines by the glass or bottle is interesting and should cater for most tastes. My husband said the beer was well kept. I would have liked chairs in the bedroom, there was space, as the only place to sit was on the bed but it is a minor quibble. Wass is a lovely little hamlet with its own abbey ruins and pretty wooded surrounding countryside with interesting historic towns and villages, like Helmsley, close by so the inn is well positioned for a short break.

We had booked this place as a stop off on the way back to the South from a trip to Scotland and were very glad we did. Very friendly landlord, landlady and all the staff. Nice modern and comfortable accommodation with great well presented food and a nice selection of beers. We would definitely recommend The Wombwell Arms to friends and would visit again if in the area.
