About Scotts Arms
The Scotts Arms is located in the picturesque village of Sicklinghall, just outside the Leeds suburb of Wetherby, and is everything one could hope for in a British country pub. Their menu is heavy on the favourites, but when your local cuisine includes dishes like these, made with ingredients like these, why try to do anything else? The Main Street pub offers steaks, scampi, fish & chips and the like, all served up in beautiful surroundings and at a reasonable price.

The Yorkshire country pub is often seen as a dying breed, but up in the village of Sicklinghall, just outside of Leeds and only three miles from Wetherby, they’re keeping the (open log) fires burning. The Scotts Arms on Main Street is an old-school Yorkshire boozer, albeit one where the modern and the traditional meet. It retains many of its 17th-century features, and the menu reflects the finer points of local culinary history. It is heavy on British pub favourites, from fish finger butties and homemade Scotch eggs at lunch to gammon and eggs, sirloin steak and wild boar, herb & apple sausages with mash.
To limit their menu to the standard dishes of British pub grub would do the Scotts Arms a disservice. Leeds is coming up in the culinary world, and the Scotts Arms on Main Street in Sicklinghall reflects this movement forwards, serving up the likes of Thai Green curry, linguine frutti di mare and pulled pork sandwiches alongside all the classics that one would hope to see in a British country pub. Their Sunday lunch is also a local staple out on the outskirts of Wetherby, so make sure you book ahead of time to ensure a seat – when they run out, they run out, so get in early.
Lovely food, good portions and great service. My partner had the pie,which he said was really nice. I had the chicken caeser salad which was a good size with plenty of chicken. Would definitely return.
Great food. The belly pork for the main was super, with wonderful thick crackling on top. The ginger caramel ice cream was really nice. Staff very friendly especially the waitresses.
fantastic service, great food, lovely atmosphere. Been coming here for years with friends and family. Will be coming more on a Friday night as the ambience is lovely - as always :)
Great service, excellent attention to detail and really delicious food. We can't fault it. Wonderful live music was a bonus and excellent quality! What a find!
Brilliant trip for a special lunch at the Scotts Arms. Our friend was celebrating his 96th birthday and we booked a table for lunch. We were given directions by email before we arrived so that we knew how to find the best way in (disabled entrance) , the perfect table (number 27!) with ease of access to all the facilities. We were served a fabulous lunch by two exceptional waitresses who went above and beyond to make sure it was a wonderful time. The Lamb Sizzler from the specials' board was delicious and the portions were very generous and we were able to exchange salad for vegetables for our older guest. The chicken mango salad was again generous portion and beautiful balance of flavours. It really was a wonderful celebration for our special friend. Thank you Scoffs Arms and especially the waitressing staff; they deserve gold stars from the boss for their perfect service
Had previously had a run of good experiences at the Scotts Arms and so decided to take goods friends for lunch. Now I'm totally embarrassed that I did. First, our first two choices of white wine (from a very short list) were unavailable, as was some of the menu courses we requested. Perhaps this is because we went on a Monday lunchtime but to be honest, that is not my problem. Food presentation was bland. For example, my fried fish (£12.95) was simply laid on a few limp chips. Are mushy peas supposed to be dry and grey/black in colour? Not where I grew up. I could rant on. I'm afraid we will not be returning until we hear some good reports.
Pleasant enough afternoon meal. Not the most extensive menu but probably enough for there to be something for everyone. Portion sizes were larger than expected and the regular sized dishes will be too much for most. Food quality was good. Prices top end for pub grub. Lacked the decent restaurant feel with having to order food at the bar and go for your own drinks. We are sure to go again if in the area.
This is my second visit to the Scotts Arms and on both occasions I have been impressed by the Friendly atmosphere & excellent food. Would certainly recommend it to all ages.
Some may think the food is over priced, but we were aware and this was a treat the food when it arrived looked nice, portions are massive, and it was very nice. However we went on a Thursday night and as expected the pub was quiet, with 3 table in use by diners when we arrived. We were show to our table right in the middle of the 3, so it wasn't the most relaxing meal, felt a bit crammed in. I'm assuming the tables were grouped to make the staff job easier.
We were a little worried when we arrived at our pre booked table at 19.30 on Friday night and found it was next to the singer/guitarist who was due to play for 2 hours from 20.00. However we need not have worried as he was very good, not too loud and we were still able to have a conversation! The food was also very good and a fast and efficient service.
One of the best old traditional pub/restaurants in England, The food is fantastic, and the service is top notch. The Scotts Arms is our favourite place to eat.
Greeted with a most friendly welcome, all of the staff working hard with happy smiles. We all enjoyed our food, I chose the swordfish & it was the best I have ever had! The salted caramel cheese cake was divine as well. Each of my dining companions were equally delighted with their choices.
Lovely Christmas cheer and tasty food! Warm welcomong fire and friendly staff, all added to a very pleasant evening with friends. Thank you Scotts Arms!
Good food and service. Very generous portions. Decent value. This is the fourth time in a year I have been to the Scotts Arms and I have never been disappointed
Very friendly and helpful staff. Great drop of Timothy Taylor's Landlord. My guests enjoyed their fish pie, my wife enjoyed a big portion of fish and chips, and I had a very tasty plate of calves liver, with colcannon and bacon. A really good experience for each of us.
Tasty food and lots of it. Large selection of draught beers and lagers. Good service from staff. A really nice place to enjoy a meal. If I'm being picky we waited a long time for food to be served, but there were 8 of us so that's understandable. We certainly will go again. Good menu choices.
Nice staff very helpfull , great selection of food and specials board ,wine selection was small but adequate ,The Scotts Arms is in a lovely location.....
One of our favourite eateries! Great friendly service. Disappointed as ordered lamb but there was none. Had guinia fowl instead-nice but v.small portion. He had steak - very happy man! Children's menu good and just right portion sizes for small children. Lovely atmosphere, music right type - mellow and not loud.
Had a lovely meal, the menu is always hard to choose from as so many things sound delicious. ...and the specials included an imaginative combination of chicken and haggis, in honour of the recent Burns Night. Dishes were tastefully presented - and tasty too. We'll go again!
Good clean gastro pub. Lovely setting, really friendly attentive staff. Good sized portions delightfully cooked. Went on a quiet evening so the atmosphere fizzled out, however not the fault of the restaurant. Can imagine booking being vital at other times. Would certainly return.
Valentines dinner. Very busy,not asked if we wanted drinks following service of fizz or following food order,so had to ask for this.Service very good thereafter & food was lovely & good value at £60 per couple.Singer very good & atmosphere just right.
The Landlord and his staff couldn't do enough to make us feel more welcome. The food was excellent and I would not hesitate to recommend the Scott's Arms to anyone visiting the area.
Love this pub/restaurant . Great food in a lovely location. Chicken liver parfait is delish and the Sunday dinner is plentiful. Went to celebrate my parents ruby wedding anniversary and they really enjoyed.
As usual a very pleasant meal. Prices are competitive and value for money. Always enjoy going there for lunch. Has a wide selection on the menu, which should enable anyone to find something.
We've been a few times and always enjoyed it but were both particularly impressed with our food on this occasion. I only had a burger but it was one of the tastiest I've had. Definitely will be back soon!
Really gorgeous food and the service was excellent. We were treated so well. I would definitely go again. We went on one of the Christmas nights and it was so well organised.
Young, enthusiastic, attentive, happy smiley staff, who gave us a warm, welcome on arrival. Great layout and comfy seating. The food was absolutly, delicious, fresh, local produce and piping hot. Highly recommended
Fantastic little pub. Staff amazing, good exceptional, the menu is dicieving, it's so much more. The atmosphere was brilliant, staff couldn't have been friendlier and the food really was top quality.
Food was excellent. A little disappointed with the service as they were obviously short staffed. We were unable to order more drinks as there was a que at the bar and no waitress service at the table. Don't want to que half way through a meal.
A Traditional pub with good atmosphere, a varied selection to choose from the menu and specials board and local beer. Set in an idilic, Yorkshire village it is a destination for both locals and tourists.
Great ambiance, great food, great beer (for those who were not driving), great service. We will definitely go back there even though for us it is an hour's drive.
There was a lovely atmosphere here, with friendly staff and lovely food. The slightest mistake, in my opinion, was not being asked what size glass of wine I wanted. I would certainly go again!
Excellent food served in an intimate pub atmosphere. Would definitely recommend to book in advance. Great value for money in a fantastic village location and bags of parking.
Made to feel very welcome with super, friendly service. Not at all rushed and the food was out of this world! We've never had a bad meal here.👍🏻
We had a really pleasant evening in one of our favourite eating places. The ambience is always excellent and there was live music. The staff were pleasant and attentive. We'll be back soon.
Lovely warm, cosy atmosphere are usual and excellent service, although our table was not shown as reserved (several others were). The food was very good, particularly the soup and roll. Another enjoyable evening.
Great food with Gluten Free options. Garlic mushroom starter was divine. Salmon with Champagne sauce also amazing. Log fire and homely atmosphere. Would definitely recommend. Friendly service.
We found the the Food was very nice and the general atmosphere was good with nice warm log fires, the staff were friendly, but what let it all down a bit was we felt it was just a little overpriced.
Great food, atmosphere and service enjoyed by the whole family . The pub was beautifully decorated for Christmas as well. The meal was excellent value too
Lovely place to eat. Country style, relaxed atmosphere with a varied foods of the world menu alongside established favourites. Portion sizes satisfy even the hungriest diners.
As usual, the food was very good, particularly the soup and roll which never disappoint. Warm, friendly, candle-lit atmosphere, although very quiet last night so lacking some of the usual atmosphere.
window table available, food and drinks ordered at the bar, and served within 15 mins. Good range of choices, and all 4 of us very satisfied with both quality and quantity.
Excellent. The food was hot. The portion sizes were great. The service was friendly, efficient and helpful. The atmosphere was pleasant. The music was enjoyable.
Gorgeous food, great service, good atmosphere and live music on a friday night. Steak and ale pie and chocolate fudge cake are a must have!
Excellent food with a good choice of wine and real ales in a relaxed, informal atmosphere. Table reserved and ready on arrival but no rush to sit down and eat.
Great venue, good food. I was with a new friend and we both had a good time good atmoshere, warm welcome. we would recommend it.
Good pub food. Really helpful service. Steak and ale pie really nice. Small portion of sausage and mash was well big enough for an adult
Always a great meal and service. Beautiful decor. Specials very good. Desserts and coffees also delicious. A nice drive to get here. Will visit again.
Excellent food , good service , good value , lovely traditional pub . Can't fault it . We will definitely return again very soon .
Friendly traditional country pub with good honest pub food. Ted and his team are always welcoming and provide a great service 100% of the time!
