Had a wonderful lunch here today. The fishcakes were outstanding as was the hot beef baguette. The service was very good and food came quickly so didn't hold us up from our journey.

Great food, drink and service and the best pudding in the north of England is a Crunchy Sundae! There is always a welcoming fire a friendly face behind the bar.

Went to the Milbank Arms for a Sunday roast. It was not too busy and the tables didn't feel cramped together. Food was very good and the service was equally good. Would highly recommend and will go back again.

I've eaten here many times and it's always good. Chris, the owner, is a really good chef and the meals are always of high quality and the menu varies according to what Chris can get that's good. The service couldn't be better and we're always made to feel welcome - good value too.

The food was flavoursome and vegetables perfectly cooked. Sardines, duck pate, soup, lamb shank were all highly recommend ed. Staff were lovely. But be sure to walk ten miles before you eat !,

Having been to Thorp Perrow Arboretum I looked on Trip Advisor for a local pub with good reviews. I rang to book a table and spoke to a delightful member of staff who said although they were to close at 2.00 p.m., they would hold a table for us. 3 or 4 members of staff who were all busy still...

We were staying near by and decided to try here for an evening meal and glad we did. The Staff were very friendly and accommodating. In particular the waitress who served our meals.

We love coming here, Chris and Di are very welcoming. The food is fantastic, and copious! So come with a degree of hunger, you won't be disappointed! I am a fan of steak & ale/kidney pie, and theirs rates amongst the best of them! My husband varies his order and is never disappointed! Definitely recommend a visit - in fact,... More
