Inside it is like stepping back in time. Open fires and nicknacks are the order of the day.
There are two bars with an array of localish beers including Cruck Barn Bitter brewed in Hetton which is about six miles from the pub.
Food served is of a good standard pub-food and the portions are liberal. On the menu when we called in were: Belly pork with black pudding (my choice), roast lambshank, brisket of beef and whole roast Camembert. Service is prompt and friendly, just as you would expect.
Having strolled down to Burnsall and back before we ate the food did not last very long but the general feeling was that it was good value at £10.95 for a main course.
So with nice beer and good food (locally sourced wherever possible) the Craven Arms is an absolute gem of a pub and we recommend it as a great stopping off point if you are in the area.
