~ About Us ~
Here at the King’s Arms we offer a unique combination of both old and new, with the originally styled bar area and dining, and the refurbished restaurant. We strive for a relaxed atmosphere throughout, with historical photos and memorabilia located around the pub. Excellent, fresh, locally sourced ingredients, a selection of beers from the local village brewery as well as the local area, coupled with a comprehensive wine list, and an extensive range of gins sourced from the Yorkshire Dales. All located all in a stunning rural village, perfectly situated to explore the surrounding area.
Built in the 18th Century, this grade II listed building was once owned by horse trainer John Pratt, who secured the 1872 St Leger with ‘Imperatix’. The bar is filled with a fascinating history, dominated by a large open fire, flagged stone floors, and high ceilings. The hooks in the ceiling still remain from the time spent as a stables, where they were used to hang the reins, and saddles while drying. A large painting of the Askrigg Friendly Society Bicentennial in 2009 has a place of pride above the open fireplace.
