The best Sunday roast I've had in a long time! Chef Darren does a stunning roast with huge Yorkshire Puddings and lovely tender beef.

The gravy is really flavoursome and a great taste... More

Wonderful starters, beautifully presented with equally perfect mains. Helpful staff and lovely ambiance. Will certainly visit again because it is situated with easy access to many Dales walks.

I had a meal of the set menu tonight and thought it was exceptional. I had prawn cocktail, venison wellington and the cheese board, costing £27 (including drinks), and would highly recommend anyone to try it.

Just come back from a lovely evening here. We booked a table as there were 6 of us. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food perfect. We had sausage and mash, burgers and beef wellington all a really good size and were delicious. Won't hesitate eating here again next time we are visiting 😄

A lovely welcome by Eddie set the tone of the evening. We skipped a starter as our appetites are smaller these days. I opted to have a main course sized starter of Kofta served with cous cous and minted yoghurt dip and I asked for it to be served with chunky chips. My husband opted for one of his favourites...

Having walked out of a restaurant in a neighbouring village where the Cock was certainly not Game that night, we were made welcome at the Craven Arms. Helpful staff, prompt service and flavoursome food at highly competitive prices. Many, many thanks.
