Lister Arms – best for families
The Lister Arms, Malham, has been named as a winner in The Great British Pub Guide.
The book, which is a lavish reboot of Sawday’s bestselling Pubs and Inns book which has sold over 140k copies, went goes on sale on June 3, featuring over 500 of the best British pubs hand-selected by the Sawday’s inspection team.
The book features the winners of the annual Sawday’s Pub Awards, which have been run in partnership with The Telegraph to find the nation’s best-loved pubs. The Lister Arms, in the Yorkshire Dales, took the coveted title of Best Pub for Families and was chosen for providing an experience that delights children and keeps adults happy too.
Darren Dunn, manager at The Lister Arms, said “We’re thrilled to be recognised by Sawday’s for the way we look after families who choose us as their base to explore the amazing Yorkshire Dales. It’s just great to see children – and all the four-legged family members - enjoying being out and about exploring nature, be it watching the peregrine falcons, or marvelling at Malham Cove.”
The Lister Arms at Malham’s entry in the guide reads:
When we choose pubs to join Sawday’s, we look for those special details that will make it memorable. You have that in spades with this family-friendly pub in a gorgeous Dales village. Kids can charge around the village green outside the 17th-century coaching inn, once home to the first Lord of Ribblesdale. Enjoy the walks, play pooh sticks in the gentle stream and relax with well-kept ales. The kids menu is brilliant and there are activities too.
