Visited on impulse on a wed evening as was in the area, pub was busy for a weeknight, ordered food came in good time, ordered a giant Yorkshire pudding, and it literally was giant, I couldn't finish it, definitely for a bigger appetite, filled to the brim with beef, mash potato and peas and carrots, but not enough gravy.

Had steak and ale pie , wife had giant Yorkshire pudding n beef. Lovely food, great value for money only thing that could improve is chips, would be more in keeping with quality of food if made there own , thick wedge type as these were frozen. Overall though very tasty and pretty good value for money . Big portions

We went on a busy saturday night and just got a table. We both had the rump steak with all the trimmings and a peppercorn sauce. The chips are to die for, proper homemade thick chips and the steak was cooked as ordered which is quite an achievement as i rarely get a medium steak anywhere. We then shared a... More

Visiting family for the weekend and staying nearby. We have dined a few times now here and can honestly say that the food is red hot, tasty and fabulous. I can't see why there is cause to complain. The staff are very attentive and very polite, a true credit. Seven of us dining on this occasion and not one of... More

Cold welcoming, the lady behind the till had no smile at all (she sees $$ in customers eyes). You have to go and order your drinks and food, payment in advance; when they have staff just cleaning tables(not even well) and taking food;Anyway the specials on the board (small and untidy writing)-I ordered the king prawns with toasted bread in...

First time that we have visited The Dacre Arms, the service was swift, from friendly and helpful staff. The food tasted freshly cooked, was hot, well presented and large portions. Well worth a visit, highly recommend.

The serving times were good for the pub, considering it was homemade, but the food was just ok. You were served a lot for the price, so it was good value, but we ordered some steak, and it was tough, my lasagne was a bit watery and also we ordered a Yorkshire pudding, which was a little dry- it lacked...
