Great food, fine ales, plenty of gin and a friendly atmosphere – what more could you want from a restaurant and country pub! 2024 has seen an extensive £150,000 refurbishment creating a stylish and contemporary restaurant & country pub..

Set in the tiny, picturesque village of Skipwith only ten miles south of York, it is the main destination inn in the area. The delicious created dishes on our menu are locally sourced and reflect the changing seasons, mirroring the wonderful walks to be found through Skipwith Common, right on its doorstep.

The Drovers Arms has already notched up many awards:

🥇WINNER - Selby District Business Awards - Leisure & Tourism Business of the Year category 2020 & 2023

Fantastic food as always, the service was exceptional and warm. We had a really kind waiter (I didn’t catch his name but he had red hair) he was a very friendly Yorkshire man who made our experience feel cared for and warm. There was a special occasion noted in our booking and (I am guessing) the head waiter came up to congratulate us specifically which was a very nice touch. The staff were above and beyond We have been here many times and will be back again soon.

About the restaurant
Nestled in the picturesque and historic Holme Valley; tucked away between ancient woodland and the gentle ebb and flow of the winding River Holme… lies Devour, a stone’s throw away from the cobbled streets of Holmfirth.

“Old School Italia with a little Devour Twist”

We’re located in a beautifully restored former Wood Turning Mill and Dyehouse, with Riverside Garden and Wild Flower Meadow, with decor embracing our post-modern industrial heritage with the warmth and energy of an Italian Piazza.

At Devour it’s simple; Good food, great music, family and friends!

We hope to be your new favourite place!

Beautiful restaurant. Sunday lunch option, only one slice of beef and part of it was fatty and chewy. The rest of the meal was beautiful and nicest Yorkshire pudding I have ever had.
