About Staveley Arms

There is nothing finer, particularly when you’re in North Yorkshire, than an English country pub, and The Staveley Arms – sat just north of Ripon in the wonderfully charming village of North Stainley – defines everything that British eating is about. Here you will find well-loved pub classics, refined, mastered and served in an environment that’s warm and inviting – we’re talking open fireplaces, exposed stone walls and dark leather armchairs. Food is served every day, with an exceptional carvery available on Wednesdays and Sundays and of course, some quality real ales. We wouldn’t expect anything less from a great country pub, and with North Stainley’s Staveley Arms – set on the main road going straight through town – neither should you. Reserve your table now.

More about Staveley Arms, North Stainley

Nestled away between two of England’s most renowned national parks in what is, without question, one of the most beautiful parts of the country, Staveley Arms is a masterclass in British country pub cuisine. Recently reopened and extensively refurbished, the pub itself is an imposing stone building, impossible to miss on the southern extent of the main road through North Stainley, some miles north of Ripon. The rustic charm of the exterior continues inside: exposed beams and farming implements punctuate a varied series of bar and dining areas with a well-stocked bar taking centre stage. Yes, it’s clear from the time you enter that Staveley Arms is set to impress yet another generation of gastropub connoisseurs seeking out the best of British.

With a menu quickly becoming renowned throughout North Yorkshire, Staveley Arms sources the best and freshest ingredients from the area surrounding the village of North Stainley. Here are the usual suspects, done with a bit of something special: haddock goujons with hand-cut chips and mushy peas, Whitby scampi, gammon steak with pineapple relish, or homemade steak & ale pie. Need we say anymore? Ok, since reopening the menu has been broadened and now includes some fantastic Mediterranean and Italian-style dishes, such as wild mushroom tagliatelle, but needless to say the traditional carvery on Wednesdays and Sundays remains one of the restaurant’s most popular draws. The Staveley Arms really is the place to eat in North Stainley, so it’s no wonder diners flock from Ripon and even further afield. Book ahead to avoid disappointment.
