A classic gem of a British Pub that's brimming with the same charm and character today as it was on the day it was opened. The Victoria Arms is possibly one of the final places left in the UK where you can feel what it was really like to be in a real proper Pub "back in the day" - A almost living time capsule if you will!
There is nowhere else quite like it, the bar is the same as it was decades ago and its unashamedly the most basic pub you will visit on the entire tour and 100% the most authentic. They don't always have real ale on tap but it's worth it to pop in for a drink and a quick bit of banter with the landlord Ralph. Please be careful if you decide do decide to visit the Victoria Arms, it's a short detour off the path and sections are along a B road with no pavement.
Being an old-fashioned Pub - they have no online footprint, so calling or chancing your luck as you pass by is the only way to check and see if it's open. +44 (0) 1969 650 314
Opening hours vary year on year and can be seasonal. Pubs may only open on certain days of the week and only for a couple of hours.
Pubs in Yorkshire (especially in small villages) are known to close if they are especially quiet in the afternoons or late in the evening - it's always worth calling ahead and let them know you plan to visit in the afternoon or to simply check they will be open to avoid disappointment on arrival.
COVID19 – The impact of the global pandemic is evident for all local businesses over Yorkshire and the rest of the UK. Sadly, some pubs/hotels/restaurants/museums may have closed doors for good, some may be temporarily closed, and some may be open but will be operating under local guidance/restrictions from the UK government.
Depending on the dates you are walking, this may effect their normal operating hours, the number of people allowed in their property, the ability to serve customers indoors or outdoors, and in pubs it may even not be possible to serve alcohol at certain times of the day. To avoid disappointment, we recommend you check any pubs/cafe's/museums/tearooms/restaurants own website, social media or give them a call in advance of your visit. (were known we have given you the website and telephone number).
