About The Kings Arms

Nestling in the heart of some of the most spectacular scenery in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the historic King’s Arms in Askrigg doubled as the fictional Drovers Arms in the much loved BBC drama All Creatures Great and Small.

The present day King’s Arms is a unique combination of the old and the new, offering a relaxed blend of excellent food, good beers and wines in the most stunning rural location.

The fresh, locally sourced food on our menu – written up daily on our striking mirror hanging behind the bar – features the best of local, seasonal produce and changes frequently.

The bar is the heart of the King’s Arms, with its ancient stone floor, old beams and its wide Yorkshire inglenook fireplace and roaring fire. We serve cask conditioned ales brewed at Masham by award winning Theakstons.

The King’s Arms in Askrigg was made famous by the iconic and much loved television series, All Creatures Great and Small….
