Owner’s Description

We’ve been named Yorkshire’s Favourite Pub 2019, at the Great Yorkshire Show; a fantastic achievement and accolade that honours our amazing team.

Nestled at the foot of Malham Cove is our friendly village inn. The Lister Arms is a traditional inn known for its home-cooked food, award winning cask ales and cosy rooms that are a home away from home. So after a day exploring the beautiful countryside of Malham or the breath-taking views in the Yorkshire Dale National Park, they’ll be a cosy little nook for you to return to where you can relax by the fire with a hearty meal and perfect pint.

Our chefs enjoy working with seasonal produce which means our menus are ever-changing. You can enjoy dishes which are freshly prepared to order using good quality local ingredients, sourced from trusted suppliers in the area including delicious cuts of meat, seasonal vegetable and cheeses. And if you can find space for a pudding after your generously proportioned main course, you won’t be disappointed. Look out for our special board to see our dishes of the day.
