Went for an evening meal and were shown to a table in the front room ,as the pub is divided into smaller areas. Staff were attentive and helpful. The menu was varied with a specials board as well. We took a long time choosing! When the meals arrived they were well presented and of excellent quality. My husband enjoyed the... More

I have visited the Aldwark Arms on a number of occasions now and thought I must give a review based on all of these visits. This place is a proper local pub doing proper , no nonsense food , great beer and wine and should, in a world of themed eateries and chain pubs, be applauded for getting it right.... More

We came for Sunday lunch and was very disappointed with the service. We ordered drinks and was seated and told about the food on offer. We then waited for 25minutes until our order was taken, and then it took us to ask twice before anyone came, the second time we asked the bar manager was quite rude saying that there... More

We were staying in a cottage close by and decided to give the Aldwark Arms a try. What a find. The menu has clearly been developed by the team of chefs and the owners. There is no trace of the "standard pub grub" about this place. Yes there are the standard pub dishes but a lot of imagination has gone... More

Wonderful pub, with great choices for food and drink. Friendly staff and relaxed warm atmosphere. Ideal for intimate dinner for two or larger parties and anywhere in between. Can't compliment it enough.

We stayed at the Aldwark Manor Hotel just down the road in this lovely village. We really loved this pub and visited it three times during our short stay. The first time was for lunch on the day of arrival, when we selected from a varied menu and thoroughly enjoyed the food, the friendliness and the ambience of the pub.... More

We ate here a few times while staying for a few days at the nearby Aldwark Manor Hotel. The pub is really cosy and welcoming, and the food is top class. We experienced both lunch bar meals/light lunch and evening meals in the restaurant - all meals were really delicious and fresh and the dishes were a little different to... More

We went for lunch and expected to be offered the over 60s meal but it was not on the menu. We should have said something but we did not. The main meal for most was ok but my pie was poor as the crust was rock hard. The desert was again poor being too dry. It was also noisy with... More

Our group of 'Ladies That Lunch' experienced a super lunch once again. After visiting in August we decided to book again and we were not disappointed. Good choice on the menu, good prices, starters, mains and desserts all really great. The staff are very friendly and helpful and they make you feel that nothing is too much trouble, they certainly...
