This pub had good reviews so we decided to stop for food. The waitress was talking about something highly inappropriate with a male memeber of staff/management behind the bar. They also discussed the inadequacy of the chef. When the food arrived it was soggy and pretty much inedible. The pub itself is beautiful. We were all very disappointed.

Appearances can be deceptive. While it's a pub restaurant, it on the day was a lost character, lifeless and lacking soul. The bar team tried their best and food ok, the experience promoted a find a better pub reaction! Shame.

This is a lovely place if you like carveries. Spacious, good parking, excellent value and a great choice of meats and vegetables. Staff all friendly and helpful and a nice area outside to sit in the sun, if it ever arrives.

Constructive critique as we really want this local place to us to succeed. We took our friends for Sunday Carvery. Plus points. Carvery was excellent and very good value for money. We love the laid back atmosphere and the general ambience of the place as we stayed drinking coffee and tea for an hour after our meal. Staff friendly. Negative.... More

We called in on spec. We were driving into ripon but my diabetic husband could feel his blood sugars falling so we stopped at the first pub we came to. A beautiful building nicely decorated inside. Staff were lovely and there were plenty of choices of where to sit. There was a very limited menu choice, only 2-3 options for... More

Lovely, friendly pub. Ate with our 2 children. Food was fantastic (especially steak and ale pie) and the staff were welcoming and friendly. Will definitely visit again when I'm the area.

My partner and I visited here for dinner tonight. The pub was very quiet for a Friday night. We waited ages to be seen and sent through to the restaurant which was almost empty! Throughout the evening we felt completely neglected and almost forgotten about! They didn't come and check if our food was ok and they never asked if... More

We were seated reasonably quickly though and ordered drinks. Servers were young kids, Next bad feeling....we were told that there was no... More

We were delighted to see that the Staveley Arms had been reopened during a recent stay at the Old Coach house. The new owners of the pub and restaurant have clearly spent a great deal of time and money, sympathetically refurbishing the pub to a high standard both on the inside and outside. We reserved a table early doors over... More
