Went here with a friend for an evening meal midweek. The service was great, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was amazing, I love the way you order your mains, makes it very special. We were the last people sat in the restaurant and the staff made it very clear there was no rush to get rid... More

We went to the King's Arms on a Wednesday evening having been recommend it. The setup is a little different, where you order your meat from a meat counter. This has the bonus of being able to see the meat and the quality before you buy. We didn't get starters but had a main and a desert each. Both mains... More

Was taken by our friend who lives in Thirsk for a meal. Unusual method of ordering meal, you have to go up to a chilled cabinet and choose the meat, fish or ask the owner who is also the chef if he can cook whatever you want. Our friend is a fussy vegetarian, and although not on the menu asked... More

We stayed here for two nights whilst attending a wedding down the road. The b&b was lovely and the staff were so friendly. The rooms were lovely, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was really good and would have happily dined here on an evening as the menu looked really good. Thirsk station is about 10 minutes drive away with good connections... More

We had our Sunday lunch here on our way to visit Kiplin Hall. It is a place with a good atmosphere, usually a busy place we gather but they took us in without booking as we came early. Service is excellent by the young lady and the gentleman at the bar. The Yorkshire pudding is really big, a real Yorkshire... More

Sunday lunch with family over here from California. Good selection on Sunday lunch menu, friendly staff who are attentive but not intrusive. Quality of the food is always first class and fairly priced. A pleasurable experience as always.

Interesting pub in small village near Thirsk. Selection of beers limited on our visit due the place having held a party the previous night they said. Anyway enjoyed what I had. On the food front it's different in that to choose your main course you go to meet the chef at the raw meat / fish counter to discuss what... More
