We came across the Wenlock Arms whilst exploring the country lanes around York. It's in a lovely location and we decided to stop for a bite to eat. The atmosphere in the pub was a little difficult but it was early evening and not many...More

We'd been disappointed with the carvery and Christmas meal, but we met up with friends for a Friday night meal and really enjoyed our meal. There was a really good selection on the main menu along with some good specials on the chalk board. Everyone...More

Only eaten here twice but both meals have been superb. This time was a tea time visit - both ordered homemade steak pie and was not disappointed. Well worth a try.

This central village pub seems to have settled down after a few years of change. The current management team are professional and know how to do the job properly. The pub is well used by the villagers which speaks well for visitors.
