- About Us -

The King’s Arms is a unique combination of the old and the new, offering a relaxed blend of excellent food, good local beers and fine wines in the most stunning rural location.


The bar is filled with history, dominated by a large open fire, flagged stone floors and high ceilings. A large painting of Askrigg Friendly Society Bicentennial in 2009 has pride of place above the fire place. Built in the 18th Century, this grade 11 listed building was once owned by horse trainer John Pratt, who secured the 1872 St Ledge with ‘Imperatix’. The hooks in the main bar ceiling still remain from where they used to hang their reins and saddles.


We are a family run business and our ethos here at the King’s Arms is to provide a lovely atmosphere for a dining and drinking experience.

If we can improve on anything, please feel free to tell us.
