Yes, been closed a while. Great shame. The owners have relocated to Yedingham and run a pub there... Also has good reviews, but not so local if you're in East Ayton!

The Denison Arms, East Ayton on the Edge of the North Yorkshire Moors is an ideal place to come and relax for great food & drink and a warm Yorkshire welcome.

The Denison Arms is a traditional community village local offering great food, cask ale and a warm welcome. The pub has recently undergone a substantial refurbishment and has been transformed into a fabulous hostelry that will be the pride of the area.
