Tables were clean and well spaced, laminated menus and plenty of sanitiser available. The waiting staff were friendly but a bit sporadic- one waitress came to clear our plates whilst I was still eating, but we waited quite a while to order coffee and had to summon a member of staff to request it. The food was delicious, freshly cooked and worth the slight extra charge over our local pub’s prices. It was our friends’ first visit but they are already planning a return.

I cannot recommend the Scott's Arms highly enough. The staff are friendly, the food is fantastic, great hand pulled beers and the pub itself is very olde-worlde with oak beams and uneven floors its a great place to visit.

This was our first eating out experience in 18 months . Our party of 6 chose the The Scott's Arms at Sicklinghall as it had been a favourite place to eat in the past. We were not disappointed in the venue, the staff or the food. We were well looked after and served with lovely food . So happy we came back and well done to all the staff for making the experience 'just like the old days' . Thank you from 6 happy customers.

Lovely pub in a scenic setting. Very pleasant and efficient table service. We were a little unfortunate in that we had a 6pm booking - the last sitting. By the time we were ordering desserts the pub had emptied and staff were clearing and cleaning tables which didn't do much for the ambience. Starters and puddings were good, but two of us had steak, and both were quite tough. The vegetarian nut roast was not up to much either - dry and reminiscent of Christmas stuffing. Vegetables and presentation were good. Will likely give it another try - preferably at an earlier time in the day.

Excellent food. My dad said his steak pie was the best he'd ever had (and he's tried a few!). Sandwich was great too and it came with chips so I didn't have to pinch them from anyone else's plate!
Service was faultless. We had a dog so sat outside the main dining area but still got all the attention we needed.
Will definitely be going back.
