Ray and Jane Carter and their family have been welcoming guests to The Sportsman’s Arms hotel and restaurant for over thirty years now.

Throughout this time their aims have been simple - to create a relaxed and unpretentious atmosphere and to offer experiences that will encourage diners and guests to return again and again.

Having featured in the good food guides for a number of years, in 1995 Ray and Jane decided that they would rather rely on word of mouth to spread their reputation for excellence and no longer apply for inclusion.

Walkers, anglers, diners, all these and more, enjoy a great welcome in The Sportsman’s Arms bar. Once over the threshold there’s a tempting range of dishes for everyone from the peckish to the ravenous to enjoy with a wide choice of shellfish and seafood always on the menu.

15 wines are available by the glass, to perfectly accompany any dish, and we take just as much pride in the beer we serve including local ales from Timothy Taylors and the Black Sheep brewery at Masham.

In winter a roaring log fire creates a warm and cosy refuge from the elements. In warmer months you can enjoy your drink and meal outside, surrounded by the sights and sounds of summer.
