The Drovers Arms Restaurant & Country Pub
We travel over 30 miles to the Drovers. Food is superb and there's a good selection of drinks behind the bar. It was lovely to sit and eat our meal in the garden last weekend. One of us ordered the Kiev and it's no ordinary one. Food is fresh and cooked to perfection and portion sizes are good. Would have like to try a dessert but we didn't manage to get that far. The staff are wonderful too. Nothing too much trouble. Looking forward to return.
Another lovely lunch at The Drovers Arms. We were made to feel very welcome by Adam and the team.
Our main courses were lovely - and the puddings were just delicious!
See you again soon! :)
Meal was very rushed and starter was missed off the order. Staff weren’t very apologetic. One meal came without some of its sides and I had to ask for them. Only stuffing was brought out and no crackling. Staff have no explanation and just said they’d tell the chef but we got no feedback. Even thought the food was ok it was very over priced. I think we were in the pub for only 40minutes due to the meals being rushed and kitchen closing.
This is a pub we use regularly for meals with friends and family or even pop in when we are feeling lazy and don't want to cook.
The food generally speaking is pretty good pub grub. One or two of the selections being excellent. If available the mussels are super and come with a choice of sauces and can be chosen for a starter or main.
The pies are good and the tomahawk pork chop is excellent. If you like Chips then try the twice cooked chips are super.
The ambience varies a lot. The pub is used by groups for birthdays and celebrations. These big parties can make the environment quite noisy as the restaurant is long and slim. It's not overpowering but if you are looking for a relaxed meal then Friday and Saturday nights probably not for you. Service on these nights can also suffer a little but the staff do a good job of prioritising the smaller tables to try and make sure you don't get kept waiting.
Weekdays are quieter and provide a nice setting for a meal for two.
Car parking is limited and when busy you may struggle. So prepare to be inventive on busy evenings.
Overall I would recommend the drovers to people its offers if anything because it is good so pick your days that match your expectations and you sjould have a great experience.
excellent, great pub food, nothing was too much trouble. Very attentive, service very good despite them being extremely busy, friendly lovely staff.
This Pub was just the perfect place to celebrate a 70th Birthday. Thank you to everyone.
Great little pub with exceptional good food and a good selection of real ales. Welcoming staff and friendly landlord. Book early as it gets quite busy even during the week.
Nice meal apart from my suet pie which was too heavy and would have preferred chips instead of wedges as stated on menu
Lovely village pub with lots of space for family meals. Friendly quick service. Lots of choice, well cooked food. Good value for money.
Great local, friendly pub with amazing menu. Good choice of specials & fish especially good
Everything was great apart from slightly chewy Yorkshire puds and a couple of noisy children. Will certainly go back though as service was great
60th Birthday for Grandma with 3 tiny tots and 6 adults. Adam and his team went above and beyond their duties and nothing was too much trouble. Fantastic food
we have been to this restaurant numerous times, but we have experienced in the past couple of times we have been that the waiting times to get your food is getting longer. we had to wait over an hour from starter to main course and we ended up eating our main dish at 21:50hrs when we had booked our table at 20:00hrs. there was a couple of big parties in but we were not advised that they maybe a delay with the food.
delicious food - the fish,mussels and beef and ale pie were wonderful. Courteous and warm service. A pleasure to dine at the Drover's Arms
Was really nice lovely meals and great service despite the waiter forgetting my tea
Food was fantastic. Followed by great services. Worth a visit if in the local area.
Beautiful meal and all the staff are amazing.i would definitely recommend to all my friends and family. Thank you
Ordered 4 Sunday lunches two with meat two without was charged full price for all which I’ve never experienced anywhere else Yorkshire puddings were burnt and the service slow and drinks expensive
Very good menu. Lots of choice. Great service. Excellent food.
Always a good review for this pub - good atmosphere, great staff, excellent service, delicious food!
Not very attentive staff. Ordered drinks had to wait a very long time. Then had to wait a long time to be asked if we needed anymore drinks, well we asked for the drinks. Then the drinks took ages and we had to ask for them. When beer arrived still settling so clearly had just been poured.
Staff need to engage with customers more. Service definitely gone down.
Definately great place to eat with good service and value for money
We arrived on time and seated at our table immediately, we were then told that there was a 45 minute wait after placing our order. To be fair it was very busy and we were served our first course after 15 minutes so the wait was fine. The service was excellent as was the food. Will definitely return.
Really fantastic top notch food loved every mouthful highly recommend foodies to try it
Went for lunch Tuesday afternoon. Lovely pub, staff very pleasant, plenty of choice , the food was excellent and piping hot, large portions
We Were staying nearby and decided to walk to Skipwith and have a meal at the Drovers. There was lots of choice on the menu and we all picked starters and mains. Food was lovely, nicely presented and came quickly. We struggled to get a taxi home due to the lack of taxi ranks in the nearby area and the barman saved the day and offered us a ride home, thanks so much!
3rd time for Sunday Lunch. Always nice food but a bit fed up with Red cabbage.Beef lovely.Crayfish starter lovely but a bit hard to get out of a whisky glass!!.A small bowl would be more appropriate.Overall love this place & will come back.
Lovely food, friendly service. Very busy though so book in advance.
A great night - we were having a reunion weekend with friends and the welcome we got was spot on. Food good, service prompt and very good value. Thank you, we'll be back!
Fantastic food, with good service, nothing was too much trouble.
Another lovely meal at The Drovers Arms. Always a warm welcome, good food and great service. It was the first shift for a new waitress - and she did really well!

As always great food. Service today was a little slower
Nice place but the quality of the 2 main courses wasn’t good.
Too much on the plate, Duck was over cooked and dry, too much sauce. Sea Bass was ok but again too much sauce
Welcoming staff lovely surroundings and delicious food all served quickly
