We found this 'by accident' whilst on a treasure hunt. It looks quite small, but that belies is size and quality. We had an early evening meal of pie of the day (Ham and Chicken) and a sirloin steak sandwich, both of which were fresh, hot, well served and presented. Staff were friendly and helpful and an overall experience to... More

We have just has a lovely lunch! A beautiful homemade burger with massive onion rings, and a melt in the mouth herb crusted salmon. It was freshly prepared and beautifully presented. The warm welcome and chatter in the bar all added to the charm of this little gem, and just a stones throw from York too!

We were only going for a meal for Sunday lunch and did I not overnight. The pub itself is very pleasant traditional English pub and the young lady behind the bar tried very hard to please. We soon discovered they do not do Sunday lunch. Having studied the menu we opted for pie and chips. Expensive steaks seemed wrong for... More

We stayed here recently as we had a wedding in a venue nearby. The owner of this great little B&B couldn't be more helpful, even offering to iron out shirts and give us a lift to the wedding venue. The rooms were spotless and all a great size. Would highly recommend staying here - very peaceful location and a really... More

Both myself and my partner have just arrived home from staying at the blacksmiths arms. Lovely pub. We decided to stay in blacksmiths as we were going to York races. The B&B were reasonably priced and not too far from the racecourse. It is around £25 in a taxi to the racecourse. It is a lovely pub and the food... More

Our B&B host recommended The Blacksmith's Arms as being a good place to eat but I must say we were disappointed. Everything seemed surprisingly over-priced for what was in effect pub-grub - although the food was nice enough and the staff were friendly and welcoming. It's a nice building and has a good country pub atmosphere but the soft furnishings... More

My wife and I are fairly regular visitors to the Blacksmiths in the summer(we have a caravan nearby) The food OK, but the service was atrocious, we had to wait fourtyfive minutes for a bottle of wine to be served. The two young waitresses were completely untrained, and could not understand our complaints. The pub was not busy for a... More
