Had the chicken parfait, pig cheek, and cream brule with crumble. Probably one of the nicest meals I've had to be honest. Good service too, I'd definitely recommend it.

The staff are really friendly, we booked a table and were offered drinks and seated quickly. Made our order and the food was with us within 15minutes. Beautiful pink beef, huge Yorkshire puddings and crisp roast... More

Fantastic clean and comfortable place with lovely staff who provide an excellent service.  We were a team of 14 doing Three Peaks staying for two nights and they organised our evening meals beforehand so that when we sat down to eat, it all ran very smoothly. There is an excellent choice of tasty dishes to choose from. It was very... More

Just thought people who comment on how 'unloved' the Craven Arms appears from the outside would like to know, it has a newly painted exterior. Very smart now and shows the new owners are serious about giving the place a face lift. The food is still excellent!
