Booked last minute for a weekend of walking. I had previously visited the Craven Arms for a meal earlier in the year and was impressed with the food then and thought it would be a good base for walking around the Three Peaks area and I was not disappointed. My room was cosy, enormous bed and even though it faced...

I was staying here with my son for a couple of days' walking. We received a warm welcome when we arrived after a 6 hour journey and quickly made use of the bar, with a very nice pint of Ribblehead. The room was good, 2 single beds a long way apart, ideal for a father and teenage son! The food...

We spent last weekend at the Craven. Everything was A1 except at breakfast both mornings it was very difficult to get a second cup of coffee. Some guests were offered a second cup and some were not. We tried to attract attention but with no swift success. Eventually, when it was really too late anyway, we did shout the waitress...

I had a great stay at The Craven Arms at Giggleswick. Proprietors Jonathan and Lyn are always on hand to make sure everything runs smoothly - from the hearty and delicious freshly cooked breakfasts (loved the kippers and the sausages) to the friendly bar. The bar is brimming with locals and is a great place to end your day after...

Fantastic hospitality from all at the Craven Arms, really made us welcome and looked after us. The food is excellent as is the selection and quality of beers and wines. Very flexible to our needs with regards to meal times, couldn't be more helpful.

Stayed for 2 nights as part of a large group (touring cricket team). The Craven Arms went out of their way to accommodate us by setting up camp beds in usually twin rooms, catered for our 20 strong group dinner very well and then kept the bar open and tolerated our 'music' playing guitars in the bar until late. The...

Booked all the rooms for a Cricket Club Touring party for Friday and Saturday nights, with a meal for 17 of us in the restaurant for the Saturday evening. Rooms were fine - not huge (but there again we had a few camp beds in the rooms to fit us all in), but they were clean, had comfy beds, decent...

Booked because the menu looked more interesting than most, we were told we could not get in before 7.45 but we could try earlier. I had had a strenuous day in the sunny hills and was looking forward to a relaxing evening. After standing around unnoticed for quite a while, we were eventually reconciled with our booking and shown to...

We have just returned from staying here for a couple of nights and I highly recommend it. We had a family room for myself and my two daughters (both under 12) and we found it to be spacious, comfortable and clean. There was a great choice for breakfast, which helps when you have children with you. The owners are friendly...
