With a Dales village as iconic as Malham – in the heart of rugged Yorkshire walking country – you hope the pubs are going to be up to scratch, and the Lister Arms does not disappoint. It’s exactly the right kind of old-stone, ivy-clad, walkers-welcome sort of place, just across the beck in the centre of Malham. It’s an updated country inn, so you get the characteristic stone-flagged floors and big old fireplaces, with dogs welcome in the bar while you revive yourself with a pint of Thwaites, the house beer. But you also get a bit more country-chic style in the restaurant and very nicely presented food – all the pub classics, lots of it locally sourced, and including homemade pies that should put some zip back into tired walkers’ legs (you can tell you’re in good hands when pies come with “jug of gravy”). Some of the finest walks in England are accessible right from the door – the breath-taking circuit of Malham Cove the obvious one – so if you were thinking you might need to stick around a while, you’re in luck. There are some pretty, warmly decorated rooms upstairs – no two the same, given it’s a seventeenth-century building – and more in a light-filled, converted barn that also has a lounge and private garden.
