The Drovers Arms

About

Welcome to The Drovers Arms

Great food, fine ales, friendly atmosphere – what more could you want from a country pub?

The Drovers Arms, set in the tiny, picturesque village of Skipwith only ten miles south of York, is fast becoming one of the area’s main destination inns.

The delicious home-made food is locally sourced and reflects the changing seasons, mirroring the wonderful walks to be found through Skipwith Common, right on its doorstep.

Graham Usher who has over 20 years’ experience in some of Yorkshire’s best hotels, is justifiably proud of the new enterprise which he took over in November 2013.

The Drovers Arms has already notched up two awards: it was named one of Yorkshire’s top 30 pubs 2014, 2015 & 2016 by Welcome to Yorkshire and is a Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence 2014, 2015 & 2016 winner. Customers come from the outskirts York and Leeds, and even from Goole and Hull, with many making a 30-mile plus journey.

As Graham Usher says: “We are determined to offer our customers authentic ale served by friendly bar staff, coupled with amazing food. Family is the key and we want The Drovers Arms to provide the best pub experience while maintaining our simple, personal, family approach to our food and service.”

We hope to see you soon
