Visited with friends for the first time last evening. As good a pub food as I have tasted. Excellent. It's a bit off the beaten track but there are pleasant walks nearby. Well worth making the effort to visit.

A delightful country pub located in the picturesque village of Melbourne near York. Fast becoming one of Yorkshires must visit Gastro-pubs. With open fires and a warm welcome it wont disappoint. The menu pushes the boundaries of cuisine. With all food freshly prepared and made from scratch. Amazing cask ales, unbelievable wines and even our famous cocktail of the week make The Melbourne Arms a must visit. We cannot wait to spoil you.
