About
A delightful country pub located in the picturesque village of Melbourne near York with the Pocklington canal running into the arm with moorings. Definitely one of Yorkshires must visit Gastro-pubs. With open fires and a warm welcome we wont disappoint. With all food freshly prepared and locally sourced. Cask ales, wines, gins, we have a large selection. Fresh roasted swiss coffee beans for the perfect latte, mocha or perhaps a luxury hot chocolate

We had another lovely meal at the Melbourne Arms. The food was fantastic and the staff were very friendly and helpful as usual. The pub has a very good atmosphere as well.

All bar staff (Will and Nadine), poured pints of pure gold. Guinness rivals my favourite other local pint and the tribute was class as always

Really enjoyed our burgers and chips. Tasty and presented well and good portion size. Had to wait quite a while though to get from ordering, despite no one else in ordering food. Choice of hand pulled ales limited.
