We visited after a 4 hour walk visiting the various sights Malham has to offer including the cove and Janet's Foss. Feeling hungry, we sat down and ordered the kids steak & chicken & chips and small fish and chips and the Cajun chicken for...More

Spent a few days in Malham recharging the brain. This lace is a gem. Always busy but offers restaurant and bar for food. Beer is good, wine is better. Great range and not silly prices. Fantastic wide choice of food and a brilliant looking cheese...More

This was a return visit on the strength of a most enjoyable lunch at Christmas time. Oh dear we really did not think it was the same establishment. There was not the same atmosphere (A bit like a flat tyre!) No real buzz. Our order...More

Had a couple of beers here Monday night and dined here Tuesday night. Had the venison hot pot which was excellent. Can't fault it really. Slightly pricey, but in a small place like Malham you are a captive audience.

Perfect room in the barn, couldn’t have asked for more. Very clean and decently done up, and the communal area was lovely with drying room facilities and a dog bathing area. Our dog was made very welcome and he enjoyed the homemade biscuits! Only downside...More

This is a nice place to stop and eat. The pub has a country feel without being dark and dingy. The restaurant area is separate to the pub which makes for a much nicer feel, being away from the crowd. The food is good and...More

I didn't mention 9.30 in my review so think you must be referring to someone else's review.
