The Bolton Arms is located in the small village of Downholme, approximately 4 miles west of the market town of Richmond in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales.

Within easy reach of Catterick Garrison, Leyburn and Reeth, and just off the coast-to-coast walk at Marske. This is an excellent walking area offering stunning scenery.

Enjoy a seat in our comfortable lounge, with fully stocked bar offering a good selection of real ales, lagers, spirits, and fine wines, as well as a tempting range of bar snacks.

Our beer garden is a highlight – sit back, put your feet up and enjoy the magnificent views of Swaledale.

The restaurant serves an excellent menu of home-cooked food, whilst our B&B accommodation is tastefully decorated and full of home comforts.

While the lunchtime menu offers a few favourites from the evening menu including Cypriot Lamb, Steak Pie and Haddock, you can also choose from a selection of freshly made baguettes, omelettes, scampi & chips and much more…

On Sunday’s, there is a separate lunch menu with Beef and Lamb or Pork (with Yorkshire Pudding, roast potatoes and a selection of vegetables).
