Owner description: The Frankland Arms is a lovely family and dog friendly traditional pub just a short walk from the market square in the heart of Thirsk. It has a great selection of quality cask ales, craft beers, lagers, spirits and wines. Most notably The Frankland also offers a fantastic range of gins all served with fever tree tonics and complimentary garnishes to enhance flavour. Beautifully decorated, the Frankland has a naturally warm and welcoming atmosphere, enhanced by an open fire in winter, and a festoon lit patio and lawned beer garden in the summer! The huge garden offers a kids climbing frame and a selection of garden games to keep the whole family entertained. The Frankland also now serves a delicoius pub food menu, offering excellent value and quality. In a rush you can always get a sandwich to go! The Frankland is a true community pub with a weekly quiz, pool table, darts board an amazing juke box and regular karaokes and charitable events!

This is a fantastic pub. A real mix of locals and visitors - all made to feel very welcome by the staff. There is always a good rotation of cask ales, and drinks are very reasonably priced. The pub often has musicians playing, or other themed evenings, and also has live sports on a number of screens in the pub. A classic British pub.

We first visited The Frankland Arms to escape a storm last November whilst out walking. The staff and family running the place were fantastic! The open fire was very inviting and the locals were so welcoming we didn't want to leave. It was the kind of pub you see on TV where everybody knows each other and new customers are warmly welcomed. It reminded me of CHEERS! haha.

We chose to travel to Thirsk and spend NYE at the Frankland and have since been back several times throughout 2013. Each time we are remembered by staff and customers alike and made to feel as welcome as we were on the first night!

Brian and Janice are the landlord and lady and their manager Katie is such a lovely lass. Easily the best and most welcoming pub in Thirsk.

My ONLY criticism is that they don't serve Guinness :-(

We will be back around Nov-Dec time :-)
