What Are We All About?

What’s in a name? Well, to us, everything! Being part of the Provenance Inns & Hotels group, we take pride in our roots and live by our values of producing the finest freshest of seasonal flavours in every dish and serving them up with a healthy dose warm Yorkshire welcome.

It has always been our mission to work hand in hand with mother nature, extracting the best out of every season and creating menus that deliver the classic favourites whilst ensuring our own Carpenter’s Arms twist. We source locally. We revel in the fact we have access to our own kitchen garden and love nothing more than to seek out like-minded folk to work with us. It’s how our Provenance Partners initiative was born. Creative artisans, experts in their fields working to values we hold dear. Fresh. Local. Seasonal.

Dining at The Carpenter’s Arms

Having recently been crowned ‘Best Food Offer 2022’ at the prestigious Publican Awards, our menus celebrate all the colour, flavour and freshness of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter as we work our way through the year. Our chefs thrive on finding new flavour combinations, experimenting until they nail the perfect dish. Bringing the very best of local and regional produce to the plate is our thing – it’s what we’re about and it’s what keep our customers coming back for more.

There’s so much to choose from; whether a light bite from our lunchtime offer or an indulgent three course treat from the à la carte, a favourite from the kids’ menu or true indulgence from the special, it’s all there and accessibly priced to give the best value every time.
