Stayed on Monday 31st October. After a long walk it was lovely to come back to the Lister Arms. Meal and drinks were fabulous however we did have a few issues with the room. The staff were fabulous especially Ross and a young lady, sorry I didn't get her name. They are a true asset to the hotel. Would recommend...

My wife and I did a 10 mile walk ending at Malham Cove. We had parked out the front of The Lister Arms and put £1.50 into the milk churn to cover the cost of parking. Actually I think it is only a pound but I was feeling wreckless. Living near Brighton a day's parking would be nearer £20. As...

Food was really good, we both had steak which was cooked perfectly, 'rustic' chips which were very thick and very tasty! The sauces were great too. We had the selection of local breads with oils and butter, which we would highly recommend. Breakfast in the morning: you'd assume poached eggs would be soft, these weren't, which was a slight disappointment....

Another visit to the Lister arms and weren't dissapointed. Food was good and generous and the other half was very impressed. But the main point must be the Beer. Each and every pint pulled and presented perfectly!!!! Can highly recommend the "hetton"! Overall another great visit and will be returning as soon as we can. Highly recommended.

We were staying at the Youth Hostel, a whole 30 seconds walk away, and this pub is the place to eat and drink, a lovely warm and friendly atmosphere that blanks out the wider world and its troubles. Couldn't recommend more highly. The portions are huge, so if not particularly hungry consider shared meals.

We had a large double room with couch, en suite. We took 3 dogs so had previously booked a dog friendly room. The staff are so friendly could not do enough for you. The dogs are welcome in the bar area, where you can have breakfast, lunch and evening meal. The food is great. Breakfast is excellent and plentiful.

The Lister Arms is right in the middle of Malham and 10 mins walk away from the Cove. Staff were relatively friendly and the rooms are clean and well appointed ,ours did have the tiniest bathroom imaginable with a toilet shoehorned into the corner but its an old building so some compromises are to be expected and we understand there...
