Stayed here one night with the dog as a stopover as we were heading to the Lake District for a week. First of all what a beautiful pub situated in a beautiful village. Walked to Malham Cove and Malham Tarn and it really was stunning. As for the Lister Arms, we had a warm welcome checked in very efficiently and a young man took us to our room, gave us some fresh milk for our room. We had a family room, staying with our dog in the room. Room was spacious and had tea/coffee facilities. The room had a very bad musty smell, had to open a window, it really could have done with a plug in or diffuser to give it a nice welcoming aroma. There was nothing for our dog, we had to bring our own dog bed yes but no water bowl, no dog biscuits- would have been a nice touch that they had considered as have stayed in many places that offered this. Dinner was good, one waitress very unenthusiastic, plonked our starters down and went to walk off, had to call her back to order drinks there was no 'can I get you anything else?' She clearly could not be bothered with us, dissappointing as your made to feel like an inconvenience which annoyed me. Had a comfortable stay, but sheets on bed were stained which was not good. Breakfast had a nice selection of cereals, fruit etc no toast to be seen. Ordered our breakfast I had eggs royals. Beautifully presented but poached egg was well over cooked the yolk was firm and mushy, sent back to the kitchen. Waited another 10mins when it takes only 3 to poach an egg?? The young man who I assume was the manager brought a new one and it was cooked perfectly just wish they had got it right the first time.! Overall with a few tweaks this place could be excellent.
