The food is great, we enjoy everything on the menu, which we are plodding through. The drinks are very reasonably priced and as we... More

Lucky to catch this place on a red Hot bank holiday Monday , first time we have been there and won't be the last. Food is typical bar food but good value the only downside was an hour wait but were warned and they were very busy.

Arrived early to a warm welcome by staff and whilst drooling over the menu (all wanted to try something different to our first meals had back in June) we ordered tea... More

Visited here with my brother as we were passing by. We were the first customers of the day and the place was really quiet. However the staff were very smiley and chatty and made you feel very welcome. The menus is quite good, with your typical pub grub food. We ordered the sharing starter which was quite large and more... More

Raby Arms is situated in the lovely village of Hart, outside Hartlepool, near to the A19 and having exceptionally good trade, especially in the summer. This is helped by having facilities for the disabled and plenty of seating outside for the sunny days. We offer excellent great value food and drink in a traditional, comfortable local, a safe and relaxed atmosphere. Showing all the best in live Sky & BT sport we thinks its a grea place to watch the match with a range of great drinks offers on as well. We hope to see you soon.
