3 of us went here for a Friday lunch, it was very busy at 12.15! very glad we had booked! The car parks were full. The staff were friendly and efficient, the ambience was nice a number of small adjoining rooms and the food was good especially the generous portion sizes. One of the best sweet menus I have come...

We came here for a meal with my father for his birthday. It was his first time but not ours. It was a Saturday tea time and the place was packed. As usual the place was warm and cosy with the fire lit. The staff are always top notch and the food never disappoints. All 3 of us enjoyed both... More

I've eaten at The Tempest Arms and also stayed overnight a few times so I took my daughter and her husband there for a celebration meal following her graduation. None of us were disappointed, once again the whole dining experience was superb. Fortunately we had booked, as the pub side was packed, even at 6.00, We all had different foot... More

Stopped for lunch and enjoyed it immensely. As on our previous visit we received a friendly welcome and our food was to a high standard. The fact that the place was heaving at 12.30 says it all about the place, and I just wish we lived closer so I could become a regular visitor.

I recently met up with all my sisters for a Friday lunch date! Wow very impressive lots of room, warm environment, ( open fires) and lovely food. Good selection of food on the menu, leave room for dessert they are huge. Staff were very friendly and helpful.. Recommend you book though as can get very busy especially weekends.

Lunch on a cold Friday afternoon. Food was OK, though serving pasta on a cold plate meant it went cold before I could eat it. Bar staff were informative but I have to say I found the whole experience quite impersonal. You order drinks at the bar then have to go to a reception area to order food where I... More

Dear me! To be honest we are neither! We are not in the Dales and we arent part of a generic pub chain? We are a PUB/INN with bedrooms and loved by many thankfully. A warm cosy environment with staff that do care! If you want a full table service you perhaps would like our dining room where by we... More

Just passing we decided to stop for lunch. We came upon a sign for The Tempest Arms. On entering we found a most homely pub. The pictures on the walls were extremely amusing. A raging fire, brought the colour into out cheeks, as we relaxed and were welcomed by the staff. They helped us to decide on our drinks. The... More

We always eat at The Tempest when we are in the area. As our Grandson is coeliac and extremely gluten intolerant we have to be very careful where we take him to eat. He was very well catered for and also really enjoyed the gluten free rolls he was given. There is always a great choice of meals that are... More

This is a great pub for a sunday lunch or evening meal - though it does get incredibly busy so you'd be advised to book. We went on a monday night and the restaurant was full..and the carp park too (there's a Hotel annexed to this). A great mix of starters prompted us to make a sort of 'tapas' by... More
