Located in the beautiful village of Bardsey, The Bingley Arms is no ordinary pub. It’s the original English pub - officially the oldest in Britain - dating back over 1000 years to a time when Vikings were conquering parts of the country and before England had its first King.
When you visit The Bingley Arms you’ll be guaranteed a warm reception from landlords Mike and Janet Schofield who have had the pleasure of running The Bingley Arms for over 10 years and have known the pub, and Bardsey, for even longer. They’ll be happy to tell you anything about the pub and local area.
Set in a tranquil position away from busy roads and near a trickling stream, the magnificent building must be seen close up. From a fine, original Dutch oven in the lounge to the old priest holes hidden in the chimney, every room is full of history and magical stories.
The Bingley Arms pub is in easy reach from all the major attractions of Leeds and York such as Harewood House, York Minster and the National Railway Museum, making it a perfect place to stop for a drink of real ale or to eat rustic, Yorkshire food in the splendid restaurant.
We pride ourselves on quality food, sourced locally by our award-winning chef Carlos. The Bingley Arms is a former winner of the Yorkshire Evening Post Restaurant of the Year Award and has a wide variety of dishes on the menu. A selection of over 100 fine wines from countries around the world, including Australia, Argentina and France make wonderful accompaniments. Enjoy a drink at your table or step outside into our spectacular beer garden for a day to remember.
