A lovely place to visit for Sunday Lunch. Beautiful location and lovely benches to sit outside on. Bar staff were very friendly and helpful, serving staff weren't as helpful unfortunately. It didn't spoil our visit but it was a shame. Would recommend to couples and families.

Visited this weekend - 16 of us for a friends 50th. All ages and children included. Fab scenery, not loads to do if you don't like walking. Friendly and helpful staff. Gorgeous rooms with comfortable beds and lovely furnishings. Really enjoyed ourselves. A great menu in the bar and restaurant and no hassle just to order and eat when you... More

Great place to eat after an 8 mile walk. Food was lovely and the staff very friendly. People were turning up to stay for the weekend. Ideal for the keen walkers and dogs too.

We enjoyed an excellent meal here while staying locally in Malham. Despite being a large(8) group, the staff coped well and all courses arrived in good time and together. Our group enjoyed two sharing platters as starters and the menu offered a wide choice of meat, fish and vegetarian options. Portions were generous and well presented. We would definitely return

My wife and I usually drip in at the Lister Arms some refreshments when we are hiking around the Malham Cove area. The pub has lots of atmosphere, friendly staff and a good choice of beer and food. The garden at the rear is also a nice place to eat lunch on a sunny day.

Stopped here for a drink after walking through Malham National Park. It was very busy, but the staff were incredibly calm, friendly and efficient. We were nearly put off by the queue, however realised how quickly it was going down. Sat outside in the sunshine. Thanks for a great afternoon. Will definitely return if in area.

Cracking country pub with good range of beers, and large servings of really good grub. Book for the restaurant on a nice day, or come early for the bar food - this place is popular for good reason.

We stayed in one of the Lister Barn rooms a short walk from the main pub, overlooking the beck. Very nicely decorated, the communal lounge area had great log burner, drying facilities and an area to make drinks, which is a nice feature. I gave 4 stars as it wasn't perfect, just a couple of minor issues. Ear plugs were... More
