We arrived and asked to be seated at another table - not a prob. We asked for a different menu - not a prob. We then asked for specific foods for vegans with us - not a prob. Returned two days later without a booking - not a prob Asked for same wine, found it - not a prob This hospitality and graciousness leaves most other restaurants in North Yorkshire way behind. Now I would just like to say also that it was the best seafood I have eaten in the UK. Comparable only to a few others who know how to do seafood the Med way. Just a fantastic place. 100 percent recommendation

Compliments to the Chef for the quality of food in ‘The Tent’ we absolutely loved the chargrilled Monkfish with garlic, superb fish quality, along with the chargrilled Aubergine and Potatoes, loved the choice of blue trim enamelware plates and serving dishes too. Service never disappoints at this gem of a restaurant tucked away in beautiful Nidderdale. Made eating outside worth it, even if on the day alittle chilly. Blankets included. The effort has been made to make eating out pre 17th May undercover a joy.

We had a splendid lunch in the tent at The Sportsman's Arms and the food was good as ever. It is great to be able to enjoy The Sportsman's Arms once again!

Excellent welcome from mine host, and a great Tent set up to feast and drink in. Wonderful to be back at The Sportsman’s Arms and feel it’s standards are just as high as ever and their welcome just as heartening. Of course we’ll be back before long. Thank you.

Food and drink were superb along with the outdoor tent area you have constructed. We wish you all the best and think the tent could be a super all year round addition. We will be back!

Delicious steak and fish cooked to perfection. Starters and pud didn’t disappoint either. Alas one member of our party thought lager wasn’t served cold enough. Overall a very enjoyable evening.

As a regular customer I was keen to try the new tented eating facility. Having booked a table for six first impressions were good, the covered area was inviting and the staff attentive. The food was tasty but to pay £14 for a pork chop with a drizzle of salsa verde and no veg or salad was too expensive. Including some med veg or similar would make the deal acceptable.

We thoroughly enjoyed the food but did find it quite expensive and a limited menu. There was only one dessert. We felt the wine was particularly pricey.

Great to see you back open after lockdown. We were in the tent which was excellent with sanitiser and blankets on each table. It felt safe and well organised and the staff were very attentive. Food was excellent, as always! Thank you.

Awesome food. Stunning location. I was looking forward to a steak but I thought the cost was on the fruity side. That said the vegetarian options were knock out. Will definitely come again. Thanks again.
