This was our second visit for Sunday lunch and both times we have been really impressed by the food and service. The staff were friendly and had taken the time to do an Easter egg hunt round the pub which was a nice idea and kept the kids quiet.

Having enjoyed a spa afternoon at Aldwark Manor we visited on the recommendation of a fellow Spa user. Although we hadn't reserved a table and it was obvious thst they were very busy, the extremely accomodating staff found us a table in the bar. The food and the service were both exceptional and the mini puddings fabulous. Will definitely return.

Outstanding reviews attracted us here whilst in Yorkshire for a few days. The food was ok but nothing special - hearty pub food, nothing more. The service was very average and slow; most seemed to be training and only one could take orders. More effort required all round to justify the reviews in the future.

Dear jbpgolf Many thanks for your review! I would certainly have been happy to discuss and rectify any concerns you may have had during your visit with us but unfortunately we were not made aware of any issues during or after your meal. When you visited us I believe we were in the midst of an exceptionally busy evening (120... More

We visited for an Easter treat to the AA, after a recommendation from some friends in York, so we travelled from our holiday in North Cumbria as a treat. As our SatNav indicated that we were going to be slightly late, we rang ahead to say that we would be there in approximately 10 minutes, which wasn't a problem. After... More

Cant fault anything. Lovely food and generous portions. The staff are all very attentive and its a great setting. Family of 9 with 5 children and everyone happy. Can particularly recommend the chubby chips, ginger and caramel ice cream. The special was a homemade curry which was fabulous. Great offer for early dining too. Would highly recommend

Out in the country, clearly a lot of work has been put in to making the Aldwark Arms smart, welcoming and a thoroughly pleasant experience. It's smart, clean and comfortable; piped music is just right; service, from a mostly very young team, is good. Food very good...clearly the proprietors take their food seriously and it shows. We thoroughly enjoyed a... More

Visited here in February for girly dinner with friends. The food was very good with a great choice, and very good value for money. It was quite quiet on the day we went but the barman assured us it was usually busy. I have visited previously and will do so again
