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.

Further Information

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.

Great meal at Scotts Arms. Food &service always good. Prawn cakes with chilli sauce were amazing. Good range of real ales, but for me served a little cold.

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.

Food was nice. Ordered a starter of ribs which were really good followed by a meal from the specials, scallops & linguine with truffle, ok but found the sauce very creamy & didn't taste the truffle. Wasn't aware when we booked a table that there was a live singer performing & we were placed at the table near to the performance. Was shown to another table but it was in a room that had been closed off & there were no oher diners so declined offer. As we'd gone for a catch up with friends found the music too distracting.

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.

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 really enjoyed our lunch at the Scott's Arms, we had a nice greeting, the service was friendly and efficient, the food was excellent and good value. My wife liked being able to order a small portion on some of the dishes on the menu. We are giving it a score of 5 as the music wasn't to our taste but that's being a little picky I know! Would definitely recommend.

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.

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.

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.

We had a lovely lunch but found that it was more expensive than when we last were there. It would have been much much better if the music had been turned off - it is so nice to sit in a place with the only noise being a quiet hum of conversation, children laughing etc.!

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.

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.

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.
